Free. Period. Why we are free

With technology positively disrupting whole industries like music, entertainment, telecommunication these days, why aren’t schools enjoying the same benefits?

We don’t think schools should pay for software to manage their school. Those funds should be used for field trips, equipment, supplies, teachers, scholarships and whatever your school decides is best.

As a result, we mastered a way to operate school management solutions at a fraction of our competitor’s cost. Our talents, our passion for improving education, and our desire to give back then came together to enable it to be free for schools.

No software or hardware to license, buy, install, or maintain. Ever.

That is our commitment. Our way to give back and hopefully make a small difference in improving education.

Let’s flip the school software model on its head. because it’s possible.
