Inspite of the world around us going digital, the advancement in technology adoption at educational institution like schools and colleges have been limited.
The educational community including students, parents, teachers, administration need to interact and engage with each other, but inspite of all technological advance adoption, most of this interaction happens at an offline level and is not managed well.
Agnitio, a New Delhi based startup, develops products for educational institutions (K-12 / undergrad and grad schools), which will help them connect better with the student community.
The company has an institute-specific virtual private network platform for the stakeholder community in institution. Using this platform, they can access information regarding needs of students, teachers, alumni and parents. The network also helps them manage connect and consume certain information relevant for them and be in touch with other stakeholders also.
Institution can make use of the product to manage attendance, assignments, examination, student performance, timetable, library etc. as well as learning management components, which are integrated to the service.
AgnitioConnect, one of the companie’s two products, helps in creating a virtual private network for educational institutions. The platform helps students engage in a learning model through peer to peer learning and continued out of classroom interaction with teachers.
AgnitioPay is the other solution developed by the startup, that will help institutions streamline fee collection and management. Parents and students can also use this to submit their fee online.
The company clientele include educational institutions such as Bal Bharti, American Excelsior School, Sachdeva School, S.D. Group of Institutions (Muzzafarnagar). The services are offered on a SaaS based, annual subscription model.
The service will face competitions from IT companies who are into ERP development for small / large corporate and try to customize their products for educational institutions. Small unorganized web services company who offer website services to educational institutions, will also be a part of the competition.
Agnitio also plans to integrate mobile apps components for specific features and workflows in to their products across platforms in the future.
The success of such a product will depend upon the degree of customisation provided, UI/UX customisations and subscription base, as every institution will have their own customised requirements.
