School’s daily management problems solved with a robust software solution accessible from everywhere, via browser.
The school for which this software was initially intended is Cambridge International School. School board noticed that a lot of hours were not spent efficiently on the daily work and a potential solution could be implemented by digitizing all traditional school processes. Before we started our collaboration, the owner had previously unsuccessfully tried to build something with different agencies and developers, but they could not deliver the expectations and did not start the project with the adequate architecture.
To fully digitize the daily work of the school in a way to transform and centralize operations, data / archives, processes, planning and reporting into a efficient online platform. Moreover, the application should serve five different user roles that allows to accessed, managed and shared easily and securely data throughout the school, promoting efficient practices, all through the user-friendly and intuitive interface.
Guided by the very complexity of the system an additional challenge was to design and develop modular system architecture, which could be easily adapted or upgraded to any school under the Cambridge curriculum.

Infastructure High Data Security
When developing a content-rich platform, such as a tailor-made school management information system, data storage, and data security is of high importance as data breaches can cost schools millions. Guided by the fact that the application has a wide range of functionalities such as data XLS import and export, PDF export, generate PDF on fly, reports and charts export etc. to provide users with a fast, scalable and secure place to store documents, we turned to AWS S3. AWS S3 provides server side encryption where S3-managed keys encrypt files before saving it to disk and decrypts it when users request access to the file. AWS S3 made it extremely simple to store and retrieve files from any device, proving to be a highly scalable solution.
