About us


Communis was founded with the aim to simplify and enhance the school management experience. After conducting an independent research and surveying dozens of small to large educational institutions in India, we found that the Educational Technology (EdTech) market in India was sorely lacking good tools for School Management.
Our research found the following:

Ad-hoc solutions
Many schools are managing their establishment with a suite of solutions cobbled together to accomplish the myriad use cases for a school to function seamlessly. These tools included mobile apps, excel spreadsheets, bulk SMS providers and generous amounts of paper.
Proprietary Software
Many of the larger schools are using proprietary software developed by them by hiring team of software developers. This is an extremely expensive option for many of the smaller schools and there are less expensive ways to accomplish the same objectives. Moreover, such proprietary solutions are not a good fit for all schools since they are not modular - cannot use one module and not the other (either use the whole solution or nothing at all). This adds to adoption and training costs for smaller schools.
Free Solutions
Many schools were found to be very happy with the solutions they were using. But most of these schools were happy because these tools were available free of cost. Alas! There is no such thing as freelunch! To keep their software operational, such companies sell the school’s data (including student details, parent contacts and class activities) to third party partner networks. These third-parties then use this data to spam your students and parents!! Effectively, these companies are taking advantage of the trust you place on them.
Extremely low cost solutions
Many schools are quite happy using extremely low cost solutions to engage with parents and keep them informed - Bulk SMS providers. Although they feel that is a great alternative, there are a few issues with using such solutions.
A. Using bulk SMS providers involves directly handling of parent's contact details using excel spreadsheets. Usually, a single person in the school is familiar with this process creating a dependency on them.
B. More importantly, the main business model of such Bulk SMS providers is to absorb phone numbers and then request further information about these numbers from telephone companies. Telco companies provide further information to them for a given set of phone numbers which includes (but is not limited to) - Full name, date of birth, full postal address, email address and linked phone accounts! This information is then packaged by the Bulk SMS providers to sell to marketing companies which will spam your students and parents. This is unethical and hazardous to the privacy of individuals that trust your institution.
Old, difficult to use Software
Other schools have software that was created a decade or more ago and therefore suffers from poor usability practices and old technologies which are hard to maintain and prone to breakdowns. Such software has all the features a school many want and much more!! However, accomplishing anything in that software package is a painful endeavor for a new or existing user. Simple tasks take an inordinately long time to perform.
Gone out of Business
Finally, some of the schools were found to be stuck with software that is no longer maintained because either the software vendor no longer exists or the priorities of the vendor have changed and the school software is no longer core to their primary offerings.

Why Communis?

Considering all the above shortfalls of existing solutions, we decided of bring to market a cost-effective, modern system with all the necessary features and a world-class user experience. We have leveraged over 6 years of EdTech experience in the North American market to create Communis! Tens of thousands of schools in the US and Canada use our solutions to run their operations.

Extremely simple to use,

Has all the features you will need (and new features constantly being added),

Requires no setup on your end, and

Comes at a reasonable price.
