Top 5 Cloud School Management Systems in Nigeria

School Management Systems - cfamedia

School management systems are designed and developed to help educational institutions better manage routine operations.

Such operations include enrolling students, managing student data, producing reports, managing attendance, fees and finances and facilitating communication between students, parents and staff.

School management systems are broadly classified based on whether they are on-premise or cloud-based.

On premise solutions are hosted on computers or servers within school premises while cloud-based solutions are remotely hosted and accessible via the World Wide Web.

While both on-premise and cloud-based solutions have their pros and cons, cloud-based solutions have become increasingly popular in Nigeria and across Africa owing to the increase in internet penetration.
