About us.

But really, it’s about you.

How do we build software that our clients tell us is exceptional? We make it personal. This is how, as a boutique software provider, we help schools and teachers solve the big problems and unlock their students’ potential. By taking the time to listen. By getting out there, providing support in schools. By combining technology and data smarts with good old-fashioned care.

Not your average school software company.

Always listening.

You’ll find former teachers throughout our team, so we understand the challenges schools and teachers face. We’ve been there. We get it. And we’re always listening.

Straight talking.

A lot of tech firms talk a good game, but we prefer to let the quality of our technology and support speak for itself. Just like the results and outcomes we achieve with our clients.

Constantly evolving.

While other software providers automate (to make their lives easier), we innovate. We’re continually talking to our clients and evolving to meet their changing needs.

A small, agile team.
Big on experience.

Our team in Perth has been helping schools manage and use their data more effectively since 2000. In this time, our team and solutions have come a long way. But we’ve done it by staying true to our values:

  • Trust and respect.
  • Reliability and security.
  • Passion and pride.

These values underpin our consultancy-style approach to developing the technology and support that schools and teachers need. While we are, on the face of it, a software company, the technologies we develop are born out of the human connections and relationships we have with our clients.
