A unified platform of electronic services for education that provides a great opportunity to increase the effectiveness of the educational process.
Znaj.by was created to simplify organizational issues and emphasize the importance of strong learning outcomes. Znaj.by provides a platform, which allows automating routine tasks, helps the staff organize the teaching process, parents - to track their children's progress and students to focus on getting knowledge. An integrated iPay online payment solution became a brand new facility in education platforms providing a seamless way to pay the main school-related expenses, e.g. meals, printed textbooks, extracurricular activities and other fees. Being a virtual learning environment, Znaj.by embraces the features organised in accordance with contemporary school needs - from an online gradebook and a class registry to an electronic document management system that connects all participants in the educational process.

Challenge
Znaj.by is a unique product developed by the Bamboo Agile team from scratch. Before starting work on the project, we had to do lots of research to better understand modern educators’ specific needs and to refine the vision of the product. Our goal was to create a capable platform which would simplify routine organization work of the studying process, optimize studying control and facilitate the communication between all the participants of the studying process. An important requirement was that the final product should provoke the creation of a high-potential learning environment, accessible via web and mobile apps.
Solution
After a deep analysis of the education industry, Znaj.by identified the most common issues needed to be improved in order to facilitate the studying process, management system and interaction between educational institutions and parents. The key solution, suggested by the Znaj.by team, represents the platform, which combines all the essential tools with engaging multimedia design and user-friendly interface.

All the relevant information is available at fingerprints: students’ grades, attendance, assignments, schedules, teachers' notes, etc. The solution offers a unique feature: providing a deep insight into a children’s performance.
Znaj.by has four different UIs: one for parents, one for teachers, one for students and one for headmasters. Each interface has its specific functionality. Each user is given a unique ID and password for the system so a parent can access only his/her child’s profile. According to the Znaj.by research and a survey conducted among the heads of educational institutions connected to the Znaj.by platform (2016-2017), teachers' free time increased by 20%, the number of truancies without serious reasons decreased by 80% and average student performance increased by 15%.
