Importance Of Transparency In A Student Management System

Purchasing student management system software may seem like a simple task, given the many options available at our fingertips, but this decision shouldn’t be taken lightly and could make or break your business. Whether you are looking to upgrade, or your organisation is just starting out, it’s important to take intelligent steps to ensure a successful long term purchase. The foremost attribute to look for, alongside required functionality and features, is transparency.

Don’t Let Outdated Software Hold Your Training Organisation Back

So you’re currently using legacy software, or, worse, you still don’t know that you are. If any of these scenarios apply to you, you’ve come to the right place!

While you may be completely happy with your current software, your customers may not feel the same. A Microsoft study concluded that more than 90% of consumers would consider taking their business elsewhere rather than work with a company that used outdated technology. If you’ve seen a decrease in customer retention, this may very well be one of the reasons why. Updating your software at your Training Organisation is critical to maintaining projected growth and is a necessity for your business to succeed. Not only does outdated software make customers feel uneasy, but it can have many more spiralling effects on your training organisation.

If you’ve purchased education software in the past, it may tick along for years - even decades, doing exactly what you purchased it to do, but has not changed with time to meet the demands of a modern business, so, how exactly can you pinpoint when your software is outdated and when it is time to upgrade?

To help you answer this question and identify the many benefits a modern student information and management system can bring to your training organisation, we’ve provided a comparison table below.

A 4-Step Guide To Reducing Costs In Your Organisation

A thriving business with a healthy cash flow and low expenses is every business owner's dream. While we hate to be the bearers of bad news, this reality, unfortunately, does not exist. “You have to spend money to make money”, is a phrase often thrown around. In other words, to make money in business, you need to invest in human resources, products, software, or supplies. But, this does not mean that you can’t be smart about it.

Guide To Increasing Productivity For Education Providers

During the 2020 pandemic, many of us, including education providers, were forced to adopt working from home (WFH) as the new business norm. This came with its own challenges, and although plenty of organisations had the idea that productivity would take a hit, it was actually quite the opposite.

4 Things Steve Jobs Taught Us About Cloud Computing

It's faster in every case to talk to the server than it is my local hard disk... Carrying around these non-connected computers -- with tons of data and state in them -- is byzantine by comparison.

- Steve Jobs, late Co-founder and Chairman of Apple
(Click to tweet!)

Steve Jobs spoke about this in 1997 at the Worldwide Developer Conference. His speech also included a vision for bringing the cloud to everyone's personal computer. Sure enough, 19 years later today, all of us probably have adopted cloud computing for both personal and business use.

Or, have we?

5 Ways To Make Flexible Work Arrangements Work

I can't come to work today...

That's probably one of the last statements a boss wants to hear from an employee. 

But it's not always due to illnesses (or laziness) - sometimes our Wisenet team simply can't get to the office for work due to legit reasons like:

  • Summertime Sadness, Melbourne (the office's air conditioner was out for 3 weeks)
  • Train strikes, Melbourne
  • Heavy, biting snow, Queenstown
  • Hazardous air pollution, Singapore (due to fires in Indonesia)
  • Train breakdowns, Singapore

Yet on all occasions it was Business As Usual for Wisenet across the world -- from Cairns to Las Vegas, the Philippines to Perth, and Singapore to Melbourne -- thanks to our flexible work policies for business operations and good preparation for unforeseen circumstances. Our results speak for themselves. 

We'd like to share 5 ways we've found to make flexible work arrangements work!

Sky Muster NBN Satellite Offers e-Learning For All Australians

Sky Muster Satellite opens e-learning opportunities

Thursday's successful launch of the NBN Co's Sky Muster Satellite means high speed internet access for 200,000 Australians living in remote and regional areas is a significant step closer!

Rockets and satellites are risky business - a launch failure (i.e. an explosion) would be an expensive and major setback for the NBN (despite a $50 million insurance policy price tag). Satellites take years to build; launch windows are expensive and rare. Fortunately, it was a text book launch and all systems are GO!
