Maintain Confidential Data Securely

A lot of faculty data is confidential and needs to be saved from online security attacks. Storing all this information in a well protected and heavily secured system is the best way to ensure its safety. Also, unlike excel sheets where data can be altered/manipulated by anyone having access to the workbook, data remains safe in an ERP as it provides role-based access. This means that only a certain amount of control is given to a certain person based on his role. Only the principal or higher level management has access to the complete system. This ensures double security from both internal as well as external threats.

Take Smart Data-driven Decisions

A dashboard facility like the one inbuilt in HRMS by MasterSoft provides access to graphical and pictorial reports instead of tables of numbers! Quick access to this accurate data is very crucial in helping the management take data-driven, wise and timely decisions. Data available on this dashboard can be viewed as per your need, for example, year wise, day wise, month wise, gender wise, campus wise, subject wise, etc faculty who are/were on leave. Hence a faculty management software which eases the whole process of managing present, past (retired) and future (recruits) faculties is becoming a necessity of every modern institution.
