Bunifu ERP System Requirements and Deployment Options

Bunifu ERP Deployment

Bunifu ERP for Schools Deployment and System requirements.

Bunifu ERP for schools and colleges is a distributed system which adapts to organizations workflow and avails the benefits of specialization and delegation of tasks. The solution can be installed on a server and based on the deployment the software can be accessed within the institutions intranet or over the internet.

Our approach to the design of this school processes automation software design and implementation is a hybrid one. The solution is offline with a cloud component which caters for data backup and syncing for remote access.
The outputs for this school management system include financial reports, receipts, vouchers and acdemic reports among many others.

A seamless communication between the school and its stakeholders is also enabled by Bunifu ERP. Information dissemination is aided by short messaging service (SMS), Email and push notifications through the mobile (Android) app for the different users.

System requirements

Client Machines:

  • At least 2 GB RAM
  • At least 250 GB free fixed disk
  • Windows 7, Windows 8, 8.1, Windows 10
  • Networking ability

Server machine:

  • Core i5
  • At least 4 GB RAM (RECOMMENDED)
  • At least 250 GB free fixed disk
  • Windows 7, Windows 8, 8.1, Windows 10
  • Networking ability

Deployment

Bunifu ERP can deployed on a premise (locally) or on the Cloud. Below are the details of each installation option.

Premise (Local ) deployment

Bunifu ERP is deployed on the local environment with computers connected by a local area network. The network may span one or more buildings.

This Network may be existing or can be done by Bunifu Technicians ahead of setting up of the system in the school, college or any learning institution.

In this method of deployment, the access to the software will only be available within the network. This means remote access is not possible. The downside to this is that users (persons feeding data into the system) cannot access the resources over the internet. The output data pushed to the cloud, however can be accessed through a mobile app or sms by the school stakeholders.

This kind of setup is relatively fast, safe from remote intrusion and guaranteed uptime since it does not rely on the internet.

Cloud deployment

Here, the software is deployed on a cloud service e.g AWS, AZURE, Google cloud platform, etc. The client applications will then connect to the service over the internet.

This deployment option comes with a number of benefits:

  • Remote access and availability everywhere: This ensures scalability if you need to deploy the software to two or more schools thus best suited for a ‘group of schools’ kind of environment.
  • Quicker and cheaper support since premise visits are not required.
  • Remote software updates

Despite having immensely advantageous, the cloud deployment option however, has its shortcomings such as the risk of unavailability due to internet connectivity issues and the continuously increasing and recurrent costs of maintaining the cloud infrastructure.
