Position your school well with information management
A clever branding strategy goes a long way and there are schools who reap instant benefits from it.

Managing Admission Process
Keeping a track of the inquiries, response to inquiries and the rate of their conversions into actual admissions is the first step. The staff handling the inquiries must be sensitized about the importance of the data collection and well-defined questionnaire will be of aid in collecting relevant information and insights without being invasive. What made the enquirers take their call in favor or otherwise is key to understand their perspective and taking them into account will make substantial difference.
Retaining Students and becoming highly recommended
To say that parent satisfaction is the key to retention is stating the obvious. The parents will remain satisfied if the school is visibly well managed and appears to be doing everything for the development of the child. The communication between the management, teachers and parents is fundamental in improving performance, bolstering motivation and appearing accountable. Schoolforte automates the communication channel besides taking care of every aspect of the school management which is so devised to translate into parental satisfaction which gives way to positive referrals and increased admissions.
