Feature And Functionality Template

(BONUS) Includes a complete checklist of Boardingware's available features



Features vs Functionality

Software will only improve your boarding practices if you emphasise functionality of features. 

Use this template to build your own list of requirements and accurately evaluate every feature to make sure you choose a software solution that will actually provide you and your school with real value.

This template will help you to:

  • Figure out what functionality you need to solve your existing problems/challenges, and prioritise your needs to identify the features that will provide you with the most value.

  • Test and analyse each feature in 4 key areas of performance (Efficiency, depth, usability, learning curve)

  • Perform a fair comparative analysis of different boarding management systems to give you a clear understanding of which system will be able to provide you with the most value.

  • Organise all this information in a single document that you can share with other staff members (ie. IT, Business managers, Director of Boarding etc) to communicate with features will be able to provide your boarding school with the most value.
