Traditionally, schools have been managed mostly by humans alone. This was fine, considering the education and the industry system were not heavily based on information flow. It was a pain that even small schools had to manually do repetitive tasks that were important. These tasks are still present in the modern-day educational environment, but people are equipped with many efficient tools to handle them. This has been possible because of the evolution of software application capabilities. Today there exist lots of software that can help with important tasks of the school management.
