The main features are:
  1. Versatile: Extensive functions cover major operational processes in educational institutions.
  2. Easy to use: on a simple, consistent and logical user interface, everything is handy, so most students can use it without tutorial.
  3. Secure: the key information is encrypted for transmission.
  4. Reliable and robust: as TeaLeaman is developed by using the Java technology on the back end, it tolerates the end user's improper operations and will not crash. The system's availability is high.
  5. Fast executing and short responding: algorithms are optimized, and data transmission is the minimum
  6. Highly efficient: TeaLeaMan tries to organize each complex task on one screen, but tries to split the jobs among all authorized members using ideas of distributed computing.
  7. Scalable: different servers (software) can be installed on one or more computers. And the system can be used by a single person or tens of thousands of students in a university.
  8. Compatible: It can run on UNIX, Linux or Windows, and it connects with many types of relational database management systems (Oracle, MySQL, Sql Server, Access, Postgres). Client side supports IE, Netscape, Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
  9. Adaptable: many functions of database connections and migration allows existing systems be integrated to new systems quickly.
  10. Lower requirements: system's risk management allows lower requirements on IT personnel and hardware.
