Digital transformation is not a one-time event, especially in education. It’s more of a journey and no two journeys are the same. One of the primary challenges confronting districts today is the fragmented data-entry and associated paperwork that continues to pile on top of teachers, principals, parents and district staff despite all of the information systems used.
Indeed, the lack of an enterprise solution to support non-standard forms and workflows has forced educators to resort to binders, paper forms, fillable PDFs, Google Forms and traditional office tools like Word and Excel. District information systems like the SIS, ERP, HRMS, and LMS all have blind-spots in terms of the kind of data that can be collected and can feel bulky and hard to navigate from an end-user perspective.
At the end of the day, you want a solution that is flexible yet robust. Each department needs to be able to handle its forms and workflows in its own way while relying on robust data privacy and integration. With the right solution, the last mile of your digital transformation is within grasp!
