Academia by Serosoft Features in Gartner’s Market Guide For K12 Student Information Systems
After being featured in Gartner’s Market Guide for Higher Education Student Information System, we are thrilled to get featured in Gartner’s research in their report, Market Guide for K12 Student Information System, published on 2nd April 2020.
As the adoption of digital transformation is increasing in educational institutions, being included as a key representative vendor of the Student Information System is surely a validation of Academia being one of the driving forces for creating changes in the education eco-system.
According to Gartner’s report, “K-12 education organizations continue to bring new requirements and expectations to this category. With such a long-term investment, K-12 CIOs and education leaders will want to understand the SIS marketplace and how it might influence future planning.” Institutions are migrating to SaaS-based solutions, which virtually every SIS vendor is offering now. It has been the impetus for many K12 institutions to shift to automation and move out of the conventional method of institute management.
The report also mentions that Student Information Systems digitizes administrative processes and streamlines many day-to-day tasks such as online enrollment, curriculum management, etc. Due to the interoperability standards that SIS software offers, institutions are relying heavily on automation for data resources.
The key features of Academia SIS:
- Student data information
- Registration and enrollment
- Online registration
- Calendar management
- Grades and transcripts
- Fee management
- Health and medical records
- Teacher portal
- Parent and student portals
- Applicant portal
- Administrator portal
- Standard and ad hoc reporting
- Data Analytics
- Mobile app
