How is Illumine a better option than WhatsApp or Facebook2021-01-30T11:35:24+05:30

WhatsApp or Facebook caters to the youth and is a more feasible option for staying in touch with others. Illumine is a whole different approach. We are a childcare management software dedicated to providing better education and overall upbringing to your children. Using Whatsapp or Facebook is viable when you have a limited number of students, but managing a full-fledged school is not their forte.

Whatsapp and Facebook cannot be used for personalization & safe communication especially when it involves little kids. It does not allow parents to raise concerns, pay fees, get assessment reports for their kids and so many things which Illumine provides Whatsapp and Facebook bodes well when you are starting your school and have few students. We offer Illumine for free for such startups to let you feel the difference.
