Developed with an objective to bridge the gap between school authority and the parents to improve the school management system, this web based school management system is currently being used by more than 50 schools in Nepal.
It is developed in highly secured platform of Laravel. It uses the innovative features of Google drive to store the school’s data. The school management software is directly connected to mobile app which is used by school staff, students and parents.
School can send any kinds of push notifications to any staff, students or parents at real time directly to their mobile phone without extra additional cost unlike the SMS system. This notification could be from last minute crisis notifications to regular activities information.
“This system will help parents check financial statement and as well as academic status of their children despite living far away or being busy simply through their cell phone,” said Roshan Limbu, one of the developers of Sajilo School Manager.
“Most parents struggle to make it to the bus stop early in the morning or get worried when bus doesn’t drop their children at home on time. They call school for this but how can school authority know where the bus is but now through this system parents can easily check the location of the school bus and manage their time according to it,” added Limbu.
