Challenges & Requirements:
- The most common issue they were facing was regarding Fees Installment Collection. On a day to day basis, they receive multiple applications for batches admission and sometimes if they fail to collect timely installments, it used to affect them dearly! Therefore, they hire additional resources for their timely fees collection & used to issue hand-written fee receipts. Result in their operation cost started inflating, they discovered that the whole process was sometimes prone to errors and full of loopholes. So they wanted a fully automated solution.
- The second issue was tracking the overall development of each candidate. Their existing system couldn’t provide a meaningful holistic view for them, as their data was fragmented among various systems. In that scenario, Laksh Academy couldn’t track the entire performance of any candidate. Thus management couldn’t take timely actions in any scenario. For example, for them, it is unable to view attendance records, fee payment history, installment details & candidate test progress at a single place to drive a meaningful output, as the whole data remains fragmented among multiple record systems. Resulting in no real-time tracking on any single candidate. These loopholes and lacunae disabled them from being effective and transformation management.
- They were also facing issues in timely and orderly communication of various details to the candidates. For example, they used to manage timetables on a weekly basis for all batches. They generate a timetable using google sheet. From there to communicate to faculties they used to send time-tables in the calendar and thus faculties will get an idea along with phone follow-ups. Besides students, they created various Whatsapp groups batch-wise. But it was very difficult as with every admission they need to update WhatsApp groups. It was a labor-intensive operation. Thus they faced difficulties in mass communication which shall be targeted and effective.
Laksh Career Academy was suffering from so many administrative issues, so they tried to study various available options in the market. It was a very sensitive decision for them to select the suitable Institute Management System for their organization. But as a reputed institute who is committed to providing quality education and services, they studied more than 10+ software.
After talking to their counselor’s suggestion in detail and taking a demo they finalized Fedena’s Pro Solution.
As we all know, starting with new software is not always. But as the Laksh Academy went on the Support page and kept on reading, they found out that the configuration of the whole system according to their need is much simpler and easily doable. Slowly it changed the whole scenario. Videos were also very helpful in understanding every feature in detail. One by one they were able to start operating various features. It was like a silent revolution for them.
Now they are able to solve all the above-discussed problems. And with less man-power and cost inputs, Laksh Academy is able to manage the aspirant’s needs better. They got centralized control over the whole system. Students also liked it as they will be able to see everything online.
