Nigerian schools today are encountering many challenges, ranging from increasing administrative costs to finding innovative, easy and better ways to impact knowledge and curb financial leakages. These and many other problems are hindering so many school proprietors from attaining the aims and objectives their schools were set up to achieve.
The stress of saving students data securely for easy retrieval is faced by every school that has not gone digital. Incidence of lost files due to natural disasters, careless handling and other unforeseen circumstances have been reported times without number.
Risk avoidant-savvy institutions have deployed digital systems which are helping them to cut cost of time, and financial resources. For instance, a school with a simple electronic payment system will require the services of fewer number of cashiers or accountants, and at the same time be assured of greater efficiency. Schools with portals that have an additional student online course registration have been proven to be able to start off academic work earlier than their counterparts without any. Therefore, affording students in those institutions more time and ease to study.
In short, apart from a computer lab, a functional, smart school portal is the most important digital requirement for any modern school.
