Arlington, VA — Capterra, an online service that helps businesses find the right software, today today published the newest addition to their Top 20 infographic series, titled The Top 20 Most Popular School Administration Software. This study is the first of its kind, ranking School Administration software by market popularity. RenWeb, Active Educate, and Blackbaud take the first 3 spots.
Providing a wide range of functionality, including student data management, scheduling, admissions, attendance tracking, gradebooks and other administrative automation, School Administration software is designed to keep school faculty and staff focused on serving the needs of its students rather than those of the main office.
"Software allows school administrators to run their schools more efficiently - public or private, from kindergarten to college," said Capterra CEO, Mike Ortner. "The functionality of School Administration software expands far beyond tracking student information: progress tracking has become an especially popular function, allowing students and parents the ability to view a student's progress in real time."
Capterra determined the rankings using its popularity index, a weighted score that evaluates number of customers, number of users and social presence to determine the popularity each solution. Other recent publications in Capterra's Top 20 series include Marketing Automation, Mental Health EHR and Document Management.
"Given the growing impact that technology has in all of our daily lives - not to mention our children's - it only makes sense that we take advantage of that same technology to better manage our schools and educate the next generation," said Ortner. "This begins with the way we run our schools. The more efficient a school becomes through the use of software, the more time and focus faculty and staff are able to contribute to fostering the next generation of scholars."
Each of Capterra's infographics is updated multiple times per year to keep up with changing industries.
