Delhi-based Entab with over 1.15 million students on its online school education enterprise resource planning (ERP) software CampusCare and its mobile application has helped students across schools in India to learn online during the Covid-19 pandemic when students, office workers and other were forced to work remotely.
Entab’s CampusCare software is the country’s most preferred school management ERP software. It is an artificially intelligent software that comes equipped with modules and features, Himanshu Singh Rialch, head of marketing at Entab said.
“An average school with 2,000 students in a tier II city had an approximate 30,000-50,000 login per month prior to Covid. Along with Covid the usage factor moved to 1.5 lakh to 2 lakh. The dependability on the app increased heavily from once a day to 2.5 times a day. Most of the communication moved to mobile app instead of other means followed earlier,” Rialch said.
CampusCare ERP is a comprehensive school management software that manages everything, right from the attendance of thousands of students, to providing the facility of bus tracking, GPS and online fee management.
Founded in 2000 by Lawrence Zacharias and Shaji Thomas, Entab is considered as a front runner when it comes to digitalising school campuses. It has a dedicated team of more than 500 professionals, headquartered at New Delhi, operating in 29 different states.
Many school’s teaching staff started realizing the importance of technology and its benefits. Hence, they started accepting quality software for today’s needs and futuristic solutions that can lift them up and bring transformation in their thinking and working. The sales will increase as we increase the presence in the market and when we succeed in “communicating” with the market, Rialch added.
Entab is also working on launching digital content wherein students can opt and pay and use in the same app.
“Teachers can use our standard teaching contents for better preparation for the next day’s teaching. Whereby they can increase and improve the quality and quantity of contents delivered in the classroom,” he added.
Most parents who learned to work from home and being effective working force in WFH are welcoming technological tools in their children’s education. In fact the overall perception in the market has changed in favor of technology. The NEP 2020 is also pushing for hybrid learning to boost education.
Fees payment by the parents is increased by 4 to 5 times than the pre Covid era. The company is using payment services provider technologies in majority schools.
The online payments were about Rs 3-6 lakh per month in pre-Covid era which has increased to Rs 16-20 lakh per month now. This is clear evidence for better acceptance of technology among parents.
Currently, the company is working on launching a new mobile application which will take care of administrative, academic and financial aspects for students, parents, teachers and school management.
Entab is also focusing on business-to-business and business-to-customer (B2B2C) and direct to customer sales (D2C) sales to students. B2B2C sales will be done through schools while D2C sales will be done via way of advertising.
Now, the organization is on the cusp of launching the latest offering of integrated solutions focusing Educators, Parents and Students by providing a one stop solution comprising of Cloud based ERP, Smart Boards, Learning Management Systems and Digital Contents which will prove to be a game-changer for all the stakeholders involved.
