By adopting this technology, schools are able to save time and cost while providing convenience to parents, school owners and also to teachers.

Take for instance, Nortify is equipped with the students’ performance analyser, a digital tool that provides clear analytical picture of a students’ performance over a period of time. This tool has proved very useful to both teachers and parents as it goes through academic records and assessments over any period of time and explains the academic strength and weakness of a pupil/student, thereby, enabling them take necessary actions to meet students’ needs.
“The data management tool on the other hand provides invaluable tool to retrieving past academic records as Noritfy’s cloud based application, collects all the students’ information for easy retrieval at any time. The platform also features a smart messaging system that ensures that parents maintain seamless communication pathway with their wards while in school and with the school management.”

These include the government, religious organisations and even private organisations that own schools across the nation. Nortify provides a smart solution that helps these kinds of schools to aggregate all their multi campus data for a central analysis.”
