How Mobile Education Apps Benefit Academic Institutions

Academic institutions and educators must collect, analyze and share various types of information, such as parent and student sign-ups, activity schedules, incident reporting, staff certification tracking and more. Digitizing processes and paper forms enables universities and schools to:


  • Increase worker efficiency by reducing the hours spent on each daily activity.
  • Improve service to students and families with on-demand mobile experiences that provide better assistance and access to data.
  • Lower risk by increasing safety, eliminating data-entry mistakes and increasing access to critical data.

The best mobile apps work offline, are optimized for one-handed data entry (i.e., speech-to-text) and tie into systems of record to facilitate better information sharing and response. 

Adopting digital transformation technology affords academic institutions and educators significant time and cost savings, along with reduced risk.

With mobile apps, not only will data capture and sharing improve, but utilizing data to make better and faster decisions will dramatically impact the bottom line.
