Through UMB application, Ponpes Riyadhusholihiin digitized
In today’s digital age, the educational world is also required to keep up with the times. Included in boarding school.
Called to this problem, the University of Mercu Buana through a Masters in Accounting courses digitize the Pondok Pesantren Riyadhussholihiin in Rocek Cimanuk, Pandeglang, Banten. “The team that I have lodged submitted a proposal to the Ministry of Health to participate in the grant of community devotion with the scheme of Community Partnership Program (PKM), ” said Hari Setiyawati, chairman of PKM Pondok Pesantren Riyadhussholihiin in Jakarta.
The activities that took place from March to July 14, 2019 shot three main things. First, digitize the academic information system of the ponpes. Secondly, transformation from the manual to the online accounting and finance system.
“We compiled a system of academic information and accounting information systems. Outside of digitisation, the team from UMB also conducted a test of students from SMP and SMA as much as 126 students on 20 May, by the psychologist team of Mercu Buana University, “said the day that is also the chairman of the Master of Accounting course.
It is further said that the preparation of accounting information system uses Zahir Accounting program. This activity involves the Treasurer, accounting, finance, and administration sections. “The system that was realized in the form of the application was released on July 12, with a training course. The academic information system was launched on 14 July and assisted by PKM team Sarwati Rahayu and the programmers Vive Vio Permana from the facility UMB. In addition to lecturers, the PKM team also involved the students of Accounting masters, Mahroji and Nafisa Luthfia Augesty from UMB psychology, “said Hari Setiyawati.
Asked what is the importance of digitisation accounting in the ponpes, he said, the boarding school Riyadhussholihiin leader Ustaz Fachruddin Nu’man LC has a great asset. Similarly, the number of Santrinya is more than 1,000 people in total.
“Adequate facilities with an area of about 4.2 hectares (ha), have 32 classrooms and 60 dormitory rooms. This all requires control and it is difficult to do manually, “he explained.
During this SPP payment control is done manually. This condition is troublesome for the regent and the staff of the financial administration in Ponpes. “Now the trustee is simply upload the proof of payment, later in the system there is a notification that nge-link with the financial part which means already paid SPP. Once the Guardian has to relate directly to the finance or treasurer to tell if They have paid their son SPP, “he explained.
So is the academic information system. Previously, the mayor could not monitor the activities or achievements of his son in the Ponpes. “What is the value of his daily, tests, who is his guardian, who is his guardian, who is his Halaqoh teacher, and others. But with the academic application built by UMB PKM team, they can be monitored. The point of this system facilitates information and communication for teachers and students.
The test of talent performed against the students is very beneficial for students, teachers and the guardians of students. Because it can be known to where the students ‘ talents. By known talent, teachers and guardians can hone the talent and prepare it from now, the origin is not contrary to the creed and principles of Syar’i.
