Today, we take a closer look at a one-of-a-kind partnership between Edisapp, a leading provider of educational ERP solutions, and the esteemed Indian School in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Edisapp implemented its state-of-the-art school management system, marking a significant milestone for the school towards efficiency and performance. 

This case study delves into the details of a remarkable transformation at Indian School, Dar es Salaam.  

A Benchmark for All of Tanzania 

Affiliated with CBSE Delhi, Indian School Dar es Salaam has upheld a steadfast commitment to student development for over four decades. Under the leadership of the High Commissioner of India to Tanzania and his Board of Trustees, the institution fosters excellence on both national and global scales. 

The Task at Hand 

Despite being a premier institution in Tanzania, Indian School Dar es Salaam faced hurdles in education management and operational aspects. With delayed systems and human errors, daily activities suffered the most, causing a poor experience for students, parents and staff as well.  

  • Inventory Management Woes: The school grappled with maintaining its inventory, often encountering issues of overstocking or understocking items. This caused financial losses and a lot of inconvenience in logistics. 
  • Customisation Constraints: Existing systems lacked the flexibility required for tailoring report cards and ID cards for students, hindering a personalised experience. 
  • Admission Dilemmas: Inefficient handling of applications, fees and documentation, resulted in operational bottlenecks for both online and offline admissions. 
  • Communication Gaps: Improper channels between the school and parents led to misunderstandings, missed updates and delays in conveying crucial information. 
  • Fee Management Issues: Generating accurate fee challans on time proved to be a daunting task, causing payment discrepancies and dissatisfaction among parents. 

This situation called for an immediate and transformative approach to enhance the institution’s efficiency. These challenges also highlighted the necessity of adopting innovative models and solutions, like Edisapp’s school management and student information systems.
