At Raytex we seek to bridge the gaps in the educational system from an organizational and implementation point of view. Given that educational authorities frequently collect information at every level of the sector as part of their ongoing operations it is imperative that we have data that is fool-proof, readily available and readily usable. Data includes the location of schools, condition of Infrastructure, Staff, Students, Academics. The Education management information system (EMIS) by Raytex is designed to collect and analyze data at the ground level over an extended period to improve planning, resource allocation, monitoring, policy formation, and decision-making. The EIMS improves productivity, increases efficiency, manages outcomes, automates reports generations and eliminates manual paperwork.

What issue, challenge, or pain point did the client want you to address?
Public sector education is one of the key government activities in any country, with planning & statistics being the key to the success of education delivery across different sectors.
The Ministry of Education was dependent on the EDP section for all data collection and dissemination of information since there was a constant need for all departments within the Ministry. Timely reports with relevant information required by all stakeholders were lacking, affecting the projections, budgeting, service delivery at the departmental level.
Why did they have this problem?
Data collection and processing of the annual school census was based on a physical questionnaire. Thus, the data collected was fragmented, and inconsistent since it was maintained in a simple MS-Access database.

Primary reason was due to budgetary constraints and other technical short-comings.

Each country education system is setup on different parameters, like sectors, composition etc. To provide the solution of the EMIS is configured and customized to suit the needs of the specific country. Several workshops are conducted, and a steering committee is set-up for a inception and road-map phase. Post a clear road-map is defined based on the feedback and inputs, a clear feature-set is defined as part of the configuration for necessary changes to the solution.
