Since we first released our School Management System, it’s been 100% free, and it will be forever (that’s a pretty long time). Over the years, many of our users have requested a hosted version to eliminate the cost and hassle of maintaining a local installation.
Great question. We’re just aiming to cover the costs of maintaining the server and hosting the software for you, rather than make a buck on the software itself.
The local edition, installed on your servers, is 100% free, now and always. The cloud edition is just renewed annually – just enough to offset the hosting and maintenance costs and make running a school management super easy for you!
Your data is backed up every night and stored in multiple locations that have redundant power and connectivity. Our servers are protected by state-of-the-art security, including two-factor authentication, biometric scanners, and card keys.
