A Single Network Makes Registration Simpler
In the oldest systems, a registration is taken on paper then entered onto the admin network.
In more advanced systems, a teacher will take a register by computer then email it to the admin office in an Excel spreadsheet, where it will be compiled into another spreadsheet.
Both systems are usually still in place where there are two networks. The trouble is they duplicate tasks. Why can’t a teacher take a register and get it automatically recorded?
This is what can happen in a single network. It takes pressure off admin staff allowing them time for the other jobs which really matter and aren’t simply about duplicating data.
Moving Between Networks Is A Pain
In schools where two networks are in place, anyone who has to work on both systems needs to physically unplug a computer or a memory stick and plug it into the other network. Again this is an unnecessary in-efficiency.
