Tracking school information with AlekSIS


All in all, AlekSIS already offers a powerful solution for the digitalization of schools, despite being at a relatively early stage. Thanks to the software being completely open source, schools that rely on AlekSIS do not have to worry about being tied to a single commercial provider.

AlekSIS is not the first software to embrace the digitalization of schools, but many commercial alternatives are based on the idea of software as a service (SaaS), a comprehensive offering with support from the vendor. While this may be more convenient for schools initially, it also ties them to the vendor and its prices in the long term.

If you are looking for a powerful front end for the digital administration of a school that is easy to use and implement, keep a watchful eye on AlekSIS.
