With Digital India being the current flavor of the nation, school Principals across India have taken it upon themselves to ensure their school isn’t left behind in this wave of digitization. A testimony of their enthusiasm and acceptance is the fact that more than 3000 schools across 300 cities in India have gone digital with the help of Free to use mobile app Teno. Teno App has helped schools completely digitize their communication methods. What was earlier being communicated to parents through printed circulars and diaries is now being sent to all parents of a class with just one simple click on the school’s app which is powered by Teno.
After its successful endeavor of helping schools go digital with its communication, Teno App has now launched its Free Online School Fee Payment feature. In keeping up with the recent CBSE board mandate regarding schools having to compulsorily provide a cashless payment mode to parents, the launch of this feature comes as quite a respite to schools.
As per a recent survey conducted by Teno;
- 67% parents found it inconvenient to go to the school or bank to pay fees
- 38% parents had to take office breaks to pay fees
- Receipts for cheque payments were given after clearance, which took several days
- 64% of the surveyed schools did not have any prevailing online fee payment facility
Teno’s online school fee payment feature is completely free for schools. Schools that are already using Teno can very easily activate this feature and the rest can register for it for FREE.
“Teno’s payment feature is promising and is helping us in collecting fees in a seamless manner” – Pratyaksh Dhingra, Director, Alma Mater School, Bareilly.
With this feature, school admins can send one click fee reminders to parents of different classes. The fees directly get credited to the school’s bank account and schools can get reports of all the payment transactions.
Parents, on the other hand, will receive a digital payment receipt as soon as the payment is done.
“It has become easier to pay school fees instantly and get an e-receipt immediately” – Mahinder Rana, a Teno, Parent.
Team Teno is extremely excited with the overwhelming response to this update and hopes to make a significant contribution to the nation’s digitization efforts.
After payments, Teno is all set to launch its attendance feature helping teachers take attendance directly through Teno App.
