Simplifying the efficient data collection & visualization using low-code platforms

Our Client

  • A prominent educational institution in Africa, operating a network of branches across various regions and maintaining a presence in over 100 different schools.
  • Under a mission to modernize their administrative processes, they’ve adopted contemporary approaches to stay ahead in the education sector

Problem Statement

Our client had identified the need for a centralized solution to streamline administrative tasks, enhance data security, and simplify data management across their diverse network of branches. They faced several significant challenges:

  • Scattered data: Managing a multitude of data types across multiple schools with varying formats and structures resulted in data inconsistencies and operational inefficiencies.
  • Compliance Issues: Ensuring that only authorized personnel had access to specific functionalities and sensitive data presented security and compliance challenges.
  • Scalability Concerns: The client faced the challenge of making the application easily scalable and flexible for future branch growth without causing disruptions.
  • Prone to Errors: Administrative processes were primarily manual, leading to inefficiencies, errors, and delays in their operations, causing them significant difficulty in operations.
  • Data Management Complexity: Data was dispersed across various systems, making it cumbersome to access and consolidate for effective decision-making.
  • Security Concerns: Due to the decentralized nature of their operations, the client had significant concerns about data security, which posed challenges they needed to address.

Our Solution

To tackle these challenges effectively, Our developers advised cost-efficient, low-code custom app development for seamless data capture. We then leveraged Power BI for analysis and integrated it with MS Teams, enhancing data-driven collaboration. We also implemented:
