A RECORD KEEPING SYSTEM FOR STUDENT ACCOMMODATION IN HIGHER INSTITUTION

Postgraduate

ABSTRACT

 

          Accommodation has being one of the basic human needs. Is an aspect of development economic and therefore of topical interest to all sector of all societies although it is regarded as an aspect of pupil personnel management in education and thus not directly in the primary assignment of educational administrators with respect to instruction, it basically true that academic performance must necessary be influenced to the quality and quantity of the residential accommodation (an aspect of the learning environment) of students. The federal government recently directed heads of higher educational institutions (TELS) in the country to head over hostels in campuses to privates’ managers and also encourages private investors to build hostels for students. And have a very good security for the student both living in hostel and off campus.


INTRODUCTION

Record keeping is very vital in businesses, private and public organizations, this enable internal reporting mostly produced manually and only periodically, as a by-product of the accounting and information system and with some additional statistics, and gave limited and delayed information on management performance. Data is organized manually according to the requirements and necessity of most organizations. As computational technology developed, information began to be distinguished from data and systems were developed to produce and organize abstractions, summaries, relationships and generalizations based on the data.

Early business computers were used for simple operations such as tracking sales or record keeping, with little detail or structure. Over time, these computer applications became more complex, hardware storage capacities grew, and technologies improved for connecting previously isolated applications. As more and more data was stored and linked, managers sought greater detail as well as greater abstraction with the aim of creating entire management reports from the raw stored data. The term "MIS" arose to describe such applications providing managers with information about sales, inventories, and other data that would help in managing the enterprise. Today, the term is used broadly in a number of contexts and includes (but is not limited to): decision support systemsresource and people management applications, enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise performance management (EPM), supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM),project management and database retrieval applications.

The successful MIS supports an organization’s long range plans, providing reports based upon performance analysis in areas critical to those plans, with feedback loops that allow for titivation (decoration) of every aspect of the enterprise, including recruitment and training regimens. MIS not only indicate how things are going, but why and where performance is failing to meet the plan. These reports include near-real-time performance of cost centers and projects with detail sufficient for individual accountability.

In the light of the above, computerization of Revenue keeping systems would go a long way of ensuring efficient and accurate record keeping and report generations as required by most organizations.
