The traditional pen and paper-based administrative processes in Pondok Pesantren have been time-consuming and error-prone. To address these challenges, the E-Santren app system was developed to modernize and streamline administrative tasks. This research paper examines the acceptance and impact of the E-Santren app system as an alternative to the traditional approach. The study aimed to assess educators' perceptions and experiences regarding the implementation of the app system. Gorunded in the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), a mixed-methods approach was employed, including a questionnaire survey and a focused group discussion. The results showed a positive acceptance of the E-Santren app system, with participants recognizing its benefits in terms of efficiency, accuracy, monitoring capabilities, and student compliance. This highlights a willingness among educators to adopt the new method, shifting away from traditional practices. The implications of these findings emphasize the potential for improved administrative processes in Pondok Pesantren through the adoption of the E-Santren app system.
