Reduce costs

Schools are expensive to run and every dollar counts. By using EdSmart, schools are saving big on draining operational costs and creating new efficiencies; from printing and postage, to all important staff time spent on creating forms, chasing up responses, collecting and analysing data. And of course, they reduce their carbon footprint by tonnes and run greener.

Flexibility

Different schools and their communities need different solutions. EdSmart’s flexible modules mean you can use as few or as many as you need, to solve the challenges your school faces over time. Dashboards are customisable so you can keep the information most meaningful to you and your team close to hand. Transform at the pace you set.

Safety and security

Sleep peacefully knowing activities and processes are running smoothly and compliance has been covered off. Whether it’s a field trip, an internal staff event, or applications for a student exchange program, EdSmart protects end-to-end administrative process with the state-of-art security methods endorsed by government and peak bodies.

Data and insights

Schools need to make critical decisions every day based on actionable data, but too often that data is unavailable, or difficult to draw value from. EdSmart helps you generate and smoothly manage useful data about school activity, compliance status, marketing or program success and much more. Use dashboards and aggregated reporting to get a high-level overview, or a detailed drill-down on school activity.

Engagement and outcomes

The school year is full of events that engage the community – fundraisers, social gatherings, sports, concerts, ceremonies and more. Digitising and automating the paperwork that supports school life makes it easier for parents and the community to say yes and get involved. Generate better, more consistent outcomes, and keep staff happier and healthier by letting technology reduce busywork.

Interoperability

Technology is a big investment and it’s essential that it works well for you as long as possible. EdSmart is an active participant in the broader Edtech ecosystem, and integrates with leading Learning Management Systems, Student Management Systems and Single Sign On providers to make roll-out and adoption as easy as possible for you and your team.

Customer experience

Time is precious. Make the right impression with parents and new teachers from the start by reducing burdensome administration and giving back the gift of time. Welcome aboard new staff or students by streamlining prospectus distribution, open-days, meetings, place offers, policy acceptances, co-curricular choices and more. Show that you invest in the best so you can protect and respect people’s time.

Continuous improvement

School needs change moment-to-moment and they deserve tools that grow and shift with them (not technology that changes once a year). EdSmart’s first-class engineering team use best practice agile development methods to improve the EdSmart platform on a constant basis, with direct input and feedback from the school community and those who need it most.

Change partnership

Change is challenging, especially in complex organisations like schools. When you invest in EdSmart you’ll enjoy personal access to our team of educators and support specialists. They’ve helped hundreds of schools master the switch to digital administration, and roll-out successful transformation programs within their communities to drive adoption and engagement.
When you succeed, we succeed.
