Books can be issued to educators, individual learners or a class. The system ensures that the correct text book is issued based on the subjects of the learner. Learners who have not been issued with a text book are easily identifiable making it easier to ensure that a learner has received all of their text books.
Books can be returned individually, by educator, individual learner or class by simply scanning or entering the bar code. The condition of the book can be changed before returning it.
Reports can be printed, per learner or educator, showing who has not returned a book.
Notifications are displayed on the home screen of learners who must return books because either they have left the school or they have changed a subject.
When writing off a book, you have the option of invoicing the learner or educator for the book. You are able to print a statement and receive payment for an account.
At any point you can take stock of your text books. Once all the books have been scanned or entered, the system provides an exception report of books not accounted for. The exceptions must be managed and a reason for each missing book given.
There are a vast number of reports available in vBooks.
Reports can be printed showing all learners who have not been issued a text book for a subject. This report can be printed per learner or per educator.
The year end process ensures that all of the books are returned at the end of the school year.
