"... My admissions team says it has changed their lives.
WHAT MAKES poliSCHOOL DIFFERENT?
All functions included. Endless Support. Customize & Personalize.
- There’s no such thing as poliSCHOOL “LITE”. Unlike the other systems, poliSCHOOL clients get all the functions at a flat monthly rate with no catches or up charges as you add staff and students. Moreover, as new features are added you automatically get them at no additional cost. When you combine poliSCHOOL school management software with other services offered by poliARC, you will spend less money each month while getting more services and better functionality.
- All new clients received personalize system setup and training sessions over Zoom, as well as access to poliSCHOOL University, our role-based user training system. The help and support ticket system is propriety and built into poliSCHOOL; it’s always one click away. Hire new staff, no problem: staff users can always request more Zoom training.
- Because of how poliSCHOOL is structured, it’s possible for each client to have custom layouts as well as totally custom modules installed in their system. If you have a specific need that falls outside of what poliSCHOOL includes, there’s a decent chance we can create it as a custom module that integrates into poliSCHOOL just for you.
