COLLEGE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
College is the final step before taking life into your own hands. Behind the well-functioning of this entire educational structure there is a strong and secure database that contains all there is to know about every student. With the help of applications like College Management System, keeping track of these details becomes an easy task.
Suitable for older Windows versions
One of the first things that you need to consider before taking advantage of what it has to offer, is that development has ceased, the application only being compatible with older versions of Windows.
In terms of design, the application is robust and can use a lot of visual tweaking. You need to spend a considerable amount of time to get to know where to find necessary tools and how they work, the interface being slightly confusing with no integrated help manual to get you out of sticky situations.
Create databases of students and employees
There are two main areas you get to work with, one related to creating forms and the other to issue reports. The application lets you manage registration, fee, marks and id forms for students, with the possibility to easily create them by filling in a few fields.
Additionally, you can keep track of personnel and have forms created for them as well, regarding salary, id and additional details. There is also the possibility to create a database for available courses and even books that students can find in the local library.
Keep data safe with protected accounts
Unfortunately, none of the databases can be viewed as a whole unless a report is issued. These can be created for nearly all corresponding forms, which you can save to file of TXT or HTML formats, or directly printed out on a sheet of paper.
In order to keep everything safe, each time you launch the application you need to provide user credentials. The first person ever to log in takes the place of administrator, which has the right to create other users. However, there is no possibility to set permissions, and the database can only be accessed locally.
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that College Management System is not the best of its kind, especially because it was discontinued a long time ago. There is a lot of room for improvement, overall only managing to provide a basic set of tools with which it is rather difficult to keep track and manage a large database.
Note: In order to unlock the full version and use the software beyond the trial period, you can request a key by completing a form within the application and sending it to the provided email address.
