What is EdSmart?

EdSmart is a cloud-based School Organisation System (SOS) for digital administration and communication. The platform streamlines operations and improves productivity for individual and multi-campus schools, school bodies and school networks.

Tasks that previously relied on significant human labour are transformed into invisible processes that take care of themselves. Staff time is liberated, information is available at a glance, and data is aggregated for more robust analysis and insights.

EdSmart is about enabling schools to automate routine processes, build community engagement, optimise operations and communication, control and secure data, and create a working model for a more sustainable future.

Schools run better with EdSmart. It’s that simple.

 

EdSmart has been nominated as a finalist for the EdTech Digest Awards 2021 and named one of the Top 10 Ed Tech Providers of 2020 by APAC CIOOutlook, HolonIQ’s 50 Most Innovative EdTech startups and Education Administration Provider of the Year in the EdTech Breakthrough Awards 2020.

WHERE EDSMART FITS

EdSmart is the bridge between school communities and the activities and processes that run your school or school network. Being agnostic means that EdSmart’s SOS integrates with what you have established, working with your current digital ecosystem.

EdSmart Success Stories

St Monica's College

Driving a tech revolution at your school might seem like an uphill battle but introducing the right technology – at the right time and for the right function – can make a world of difference to how your school operates. Schools that hit on the technology sweet spot never look back.

St Monica’s College in Cairns, part of the Diocese of Cairns, is one of those schools.

Tintern Grammar School

Across the course of 2020, Tintern Grammar was one of the Australian schools that, due to its location in the State of Victoria, endured one of the longest periods of mandatory remote learning. 

Principal Bradley Fry discusses how the school utilised EdSmart to overcome the hurdles of the pandemic.

Diocesan School for Girls

Like so many school leaders across the world, Heather McRae, Principal at Diocesan School for Girls in Auckland, laments the loss of excursions, camps and other forms of education outside the classroom as an unfortunate casualty of the global pandemic. She explains how EdSmart took on an unexpected role for them in 2020.

The greatest compliment I can share is that Edsmart is so easy to use that the IT team hasn't yet been needed to help set up a form.

Former ICT Manager,
Oxford Falls Grammar School, Australia
"
EdSmart integrates seamlessly with our SMS (PCSchool) and so is always up-to-date with its knowledge of the inter-relationships between students, teachers, classes, co-curricular groups and parents/caregivers. This makes selecting the recipients for a form incredibly simple.

Carl Hogan
Head of IT,
Rangi Ruru Girls' School, New Zealand
"
We use EdSmart for everything. Absolutely everything.
Everything is centralised and can be easily accessed all in one place.

Katie Richardson
Communications and Records Officer,
The Hutchins School, Australia
"
[EdSmart has] reduced workload, given us much greater accuracy... parents have reported it's so easy for them...and never more so than during the various stages of lockdown.

Bradley Fry
Principal,
Tintern Grammar School, Australia
"
The EdSmart vision is absolutely right for schools. Our school has saved time, effort and real budgetary costs, while getting back new efficiency and insights. I’m proud to be a UK EdSmart user and a member of their Smart School community.

Phil Sherwood
Head Teacher,
Uplands Primary School and Nursery, UK
"
The response from parents has been great – they just get it! I have parents telling me how much they love [EdSmart] and how easy it is to use with everything in one place.

Alison Forster
School Information Systems Manager,
Diocese of Cairns, Australia
"
I've been an EdSmart customer for a few years now, both at my previous school and my current one. It’s a powerful solution which works really well and keeps evolving to meet the needs of its userbase.

Carl Hogan
Head of IT,
Rangi Ruru Girls' School, New Zealand
"
What has been absolutely invaluable has been EdSmart.
It has been the most fantastic tool for us to use ever since we started it.

Bradley Fry
Principal,
Tintern Grammar School, Australia
"
Given that sensitive information is stored in EdSmart, I appreciate that their corporate data policies are robust and accessible.

Carl Hogan
Head of IT,
Rangi Ruru Girls' School, New Zealand
"
I can attest that EdSmart is the real deal and it’s worth your time to explore how it could help your school.

Phil Sherwood
Head Teacher,
Uplands Primary School and Nursery, UK
"
[EdSmart] has been a lifesaver for many people, particularly since COVID, because we use it for a whole range of applications now... It has more or less become our administration platform.

Edna Galvin
Principal,
St Monica's College, Australia
"
The clean and easy-to-use interface makes EdSmart very straightforward for staff to use and also for parents and caregivers to respond to permission slips. Balanced with this simplicity is the sophistication of workflows and processes which allow us to ensure the compliance side of our requirements are automatically met.
