“In a digital age, we have an opportunity to transform lives of people in ways that was hard to imagine a couple of decades ago”: Narendra Modi

A fee collection software is an online platform that allows fee payment transactions for students and institutes. It is integrated with several payment gateways. It enables students and parents to pay fees online from anywhere, anytime. The fees paid by students are directly deposited in the desired bank account of the institute.

With the rapid technological advancements & introduction of the New Education Policy 2020 that possesses great implementation benefits, its high time educational institutions, following the traditional teaching-learning pattern also take a step forward and embrace edTech like education ERP especially for fee management.

To be honest, the reason why I am emphasizing fees management is the ongoing scenario. These days’ educational institutes are struggling a lot in terms of collecting & managing fees. Refunds, scholarships, different fee demands the different permutations not only make fee collection difficult but also managing collections, payment reconciliation, and student data reports time & manhour redundant.

The same thing goes for the parents; they are facing hassles with the typical manual fee payment procedure. Owing to the “new normal” culture, it’s risky to stand in crowded long queues for hours.

Be it a student or parent, everyone is busy with their work, and can’t move out breaking the “social distancing” rule – these are the main reasons why the online fee collection ERP software has become the need of the hour.

Top 6 reasons why every educational institution must invest in online fee management software-

#1: Digital Student Account Management

It has been observed that the manual fee process is quite hectic and consumes a lot of time.

The staff members handling the school fees department have to be extra careful to avoid errors.

Managing the fee record of various students according to their departments and classes can be frustrating and daunting. However, with accounting software for educational institutions or simply fee accounting software, the staff members can easily create digital profiles for students by adding contact details remotely from anywhere just by login their portal and track their fee records.

#2: Automatic Fee Calculation for Various Fields

Taking into consideration all the crucial factors such as education scholarships, e-learning classes, hostel fees, discounts, extra-curricular activities fees, library fees, and much more, the online fee management system calculates fees for every student with high precision.

Moreover, the staff members can filter out department-wise data & generate accurate & insightful reports that depict the exact count of the fees collected for various departments.

#3: Completely Secured Transactions

Owing to the rising fraudulent online activities, most parents raise eyebrows when it comes to ‘Online Fee Payment’. Student Data Security is most crucial, ensuring that the data does not get leaked saves the student from fraudulent activities.

Well, the reasons to panic vanish with the deployment of a cloud-enabled fee automation system with role-based access! Such cloud-hosted fee collection software systems are highly secured in nature.

To avoid such instances, the real-time fee collection system sends emails or SMS reminders on the registered mobile number of parents and students. They can pay the online school fees on
