SMART Software is a powerful and integrated school administration system. After a decade of active and passionate development in response to requests and feedback, the system has evolved into a flexible and user-friendly information system tailored to the needs of South African schools.
In the rapidly changing school environment, SMART Software stands out as an adaptable and convenient package. By generalizing the procedures and practices used at schools, the program is able to handle a wide variety of situations. Continuous development and improvement produces a system that grows to meet your current and future requirements.
Despite the power of the package, it remains easy to use. The user-interface is consistent, explorable and practically arranged. Available options are always visible and labelled – the user never needs to remember “special codes”. In addition, the system can work in both Afrikaans and English.
As an integrated system, all changes are done only once. Volatile information is recalculated automatically and invisibly, meaning that results are always accurate and up to date. In addition, the package can be used effectively over a network and handles multiple simultaneous users.
By using popular standards such as Microsoft® Access™ and Excel™, SMART Software allows you to apply existing skills to simplify administration. Your data cannot be locked in.
SMART Software is cost-effective. Your license is site-based, thus there is no limit placed on the number of users, computers or the amount of data. Your license also covers unlimited technical support calls. The different modules of the system can be licensed separately, so you only pay for the modules you use.
The best feature of the system is the people behind it. Good support is an essential part of any large software system, and we are dedicated to delivering it. When you require step-by-step guidance to perform unfamiliar tasks, we will be patient while answering your questions. We became leaders in our field simply by listening and responding to our customers’ needs.
SMART Software should work on any computer running Microsoft® Windows® 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP or later. However, for the system to be used effectively, the following requirements should be considered a minimum:
Processor: 1 GHz or faster
Memory: 128 MB or more
Hard drive space: 50 MB initially, up to 300 MB or more as the database grows
Network: 100 Mb or faster (if applicable)
