Our Review

In our opinion this tool is a good approach towards making admissions an easy process on both ends. Parents are being able to look for schools and seat availability and on the other end schools get a chance to mark their presence on a platform that is being visited by the community as well as parents looking for schools for their kids. This increases their chances of fetching the potential prospects in need.
