BPS.net is the name for the bespoke school administrative system developed here at Patana. This system serves to automate many of the manual administrative processes in the school.
This system consists of a central database which holds the underlying key data that the school relies on. This data can be defined as student details, staff details, parental details and organisation details. Around this central database are a series of modules that utilise this key data, these modules serve both the academic and the business needs of the school.
One of the main benefits to this work will the reduction in the duplication of data around the campus, as a majority of key data will be stored in the central data source. The longer term benefits will be the increased use of technology and easier access to information throughout the campus.
As these applications are internally developed we are keen to canvass as much opinion as possible during the development phase to ensure that finished modules will be genuinely useful for day to day work. We welcome all comments and suggestions, negative or positive!
