When you’re managing a school, the stakeholders are many and the stakes are high. The success of your school depends on the efforts of your entire staff. However, without the proper tools, even the most efficient and dedicated employees can be overwhelmed by endless paperwork, reporting requirements and financial responsibilities. GE provides you with task automation, intelligent, paper-free solutions and anywhere access that will revolutionize the way your business office runs.
Take the headache out of contracts, registration and tuition collection
At Genius Education we know that no two schools create their tuition contracts the same way. We also know that getting parents to register is complicated, time-consuming and, at times, frustrating. We also know that managing tuition payments and ensuring collections entails hours of organizational and follow up work.
At Genius Education knowledge is power, so we took all this knowledge and used it to build the most comprehensive, intelligent and self-directing registration system available. In addition to our many automated processes, we’ve included dozens of dashboards and analysis reports so that you have all the knowledge you need to ensure your school’s financial success.
The Contract Process
The process begins with setting up your tuition rates, discounts and payment structure. As always, our experienced account managers are there with you every step of the process to help you set up your contracts in the most efficient manner from both a practical and technical standpoint.
Establish rules and have Genius Education automatically create contracts with all appropriate fees and discounts already calculated and applied. It’s easy to add additional charges or discounts later on as well.
Contract charges can be split between multiple accounts (i.e. divorced spouses or another third-party); view the entire tuition and percentages being paid for that child on a single screen.
Set up early bird discounts to be automatically applied at the time the parents submits registration if applicable.
Genius Education supports both the standard re-enrollment process as well as continual enrollment.
We aim to make the registration process simple and easy for both your business office staff and your parent body. By providing you with unlimited customization options and your parents with a beautiful and user-friendly interface, it’s an experience that you will both come to love.
Fully customizable screens can be set up by your office staff utilizing our simple and intuitive UI. This includes so many options - from changing wording, configuring the pages and panels that appear on each page, enforcing required fields and page signatures and even setting up fully customizable forms with your own questions and options.
