Bangalore-based education startup, Epaathsala, has launched end-to-end integrated accreditation and ERP technology solution for managing colleges and universities with multiple accreditations for standards such as NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council) and NBA (National Board of Accreditation). The startup believes that the accreditation would open doors to more funding for these institutions, which would in turn boost the quality of education and improve student enrolment ratio.
The ERP solution would provide the institutions with an accreditation report with gaps and recommendations on how to improve and get better grades for the accreditations. Epaathsala then provides software and consultancy solutions to the institutions to help them improve their college management with an emphasis on how to improve their compliance with the accreditation standards.
“Previously the system was manual and time consuming. We are helping education institutions to receive accreditation in an easy, efficient and fast manner, supported by best-of-breed technology software. We are providing both the software as well as consultancy services in order to bridge the gap identified for specific accreditations,” said Suman Nandy, Founder and Director, Epaathsala.
The solution provider’s key modules include Accreditation Management, IQAC work flow, PO-CO attainment for students, SWOT analysis, Admission Management, Accounting and Fees Management, Student Management, Learning Management System, Library Management, Hostel and Class Management, Transport Management, Placement Management and Alumina Management.
“Every institution has its unique set of processes. However, it is important to align the processes as per the global benchmark and accreditation standards to improve efficiently and provide a better quality education,” added Nandy.
