Top 30 operations digitised by ANZ schools in 2021

Top 30 Operational Processes to Automate in 2021

Recording: An EdTech webinar for ANZ schools

Schools are inherently full of inefficient operational processes, which have an unsustainable and unreliable dependency on people and paper: From Medical Contact Cards and Incident Management; School Trips and Extra-curricular Activity Management; Student Enrolments and Transitions; Parent Communications and Consents; Payments and Ordering; Staff Requests, Approvals and Policy Management; and more.
Streamlining these routine tasks can save enormous recurring time, effort and resources. But, how do you do it, and where do you start?
Watch this Operoo EdTech webinar as we unveil the top 30 operational workflows, which forward-thinking Australian and New Zealand schools are already digitising in 2021. Then, stick around as we demonstrate how to automate 10 of the most resource-intensive parent, staff and student processes live. Discover how to boost parent engagement, staff productivity and student participation.
