2.1 Background of the Study
An Information System (IS) is any combination of information technology and people's activities using that technology to support operations, management, and decision-making. In a very broad sense, the term information system is frequently used to refer to the interaction between people, algorithmic processes, data and technology. Information systems are distinct from information technology in that an information system is typically seen as having an ICT component. Information systems help to control the performance of business processes. An information system is a work system whose activities are devoted to processing (capturing, transmitting, storing, retrieving, manipulating and displaying) information. A work system is a system in which humans and/or machines perform work using resources to produce specific products and/or services for customers. Enrollment system is the must have system in a school. When a student is enrolling for a specific course the school requires all the necessary information of the enrolees. When the school retrieves the important information from the student, the encoder now should input the details of the student in the enrollment system. In the enrollment system, the school can trace what are the standings of the students. The data of the student are inserted in the enrollment system it includes payment, subjects, number of units, section, subject rooms, etc. Lack of enrollment system in a school it can lead to chaos and troubles, the students will be confuse on what they should do and how they will do to be able to enrol. It is extremely useful in the school in the way of making the processes of enrolling much easy. In enrollment, Lobo International Institute Foundation Inc, a private institution on secondary school uses manual system of enrollment. The proponents think that their current system for enrollment is quite time and effort consuming considering that they have 336 students at present. They are experiencing hard time in performing transactions involved in their enrollment like the assessment of the students, the payment for their tuition fees and other fees, registration and also in generating enrollment related reports.
