We have compiled a checklist for your school mobile app including the key features the teachers, parents and even the students expect. This checklist ensures that the technological needs of all the stakeholders are met.
Online Fee Payment
Perhaps, one of the most potent and beneficial features of modern technology is ‘online payment Integration’. A school app can be integrated with online payment gateways to facilitate easy fee payment and fee collection.

Homework is as important as classwork. Every teacher goes through the daily struggle of making students to complete their homework and keep track of the same. Moreover, sometimes teachers also have to share notes and study resources with parents via emails, which is again a tedious task.
