The beginning has only just started

Smart Schools is here to revolutionise schools in New Zealand and tidy up the mess that competitors have created. Our story really just starts now and we’re excited about the future.

Beginning 2017, we started researching the core problems within schools by speaking to principals, teachers and to parents of students. Our R&D process took about 5 months before we could start developing our solutions. We took our time with R&D because we strongly believe in creating value with whatever we build and we wanted to make sure that our solutions reflected that.

From our market research we also found a huge hole in innovation when it comes to apps for Schools in New Zealand and this really opened our eyes up. The biggest competitor we have in New Zealand deploy apps with outdated technology and a very poor user interface. After finding this out, we decided that we were going to provide New Zealand schools with apps that have updated technology, a premium user interface and real innovation without the high cost.

After all this research we were all set to start developing the first Smart Schools solution. At this point we were a lot more clear on what we wanted to achieve for New Zealand schools and how we could do it. During development we met through many hurdles to achieve integrations and solutions that were packed with value but near-impossible to develop. As of 04/09/2017, we’re quite proud to say that we have overcome them and have delivered New Zealand’s first school app that has offline-capabilities, in-app administration and has a fully native easy-to-use UI.
