Challenge #1

Student data in silos across different internal systems

Challenge #2

Disconnected and manual billing process

Challenge #3

Disjoint student journey from admission to exit

Much like most big preschool chains across the globe, Woodland Preschools had several internal systems in which student records were stored – in silos, inaccessible and disconnected.

Then there was the highly manual billing system at the backend which was not parent-friendly. Speaking of parent-friendliness, the entire journey from admission to exit was disjoint and cumbersome for staff and parents alike.

A single platform that integrated into all existing systems, and was easy for staff and parents to use – that’s what Illumine brought to the table, and transformed their overall operations drastically!
