Developing EdTech applications and software for schools can be a daunting process. At EdUnity, we help businesses build applications that schools love - addressing key challenges in education including implementation and deployment, user experience and data management.

Building EdTech Applications for
EdUnity Developer offers a cross-platform development framework for EdTech Development. Our framework lets you build apps compatible with EdUnity, so schools can use your service within their school's existing app. Apps can still be published for the App Store and Google Play. One development framework, covering every platform.
EdUnity Developer offers a single code base and technical framework that works across iOS, Android and HTML 5 supporting Smartphones, Tablets and other internet enabled smart devices.
Applications developed on our frameworks work within a School's existing app or can be downloaded and used as standalone applications from the App Store and Google Play.
We fully maintain our frameworks for new devices and technologies. This means when you build on EdUnity, your applications are future proofed saving on maintenance and development.
Lets parents and students track the school bus, receive automated alerts in case of delay and pick up reminders.
How it Works
The service uses an API to link a School Bus Tracking Service which submits real-time updates about the status of the bus.
If the School Bus is delayed, the service is configured to automatically notify the relevant parents and/or students. Notifications are also be configured for pick up reminders and safeguarding notices to inform parents their child has arrived or is in transit.
Due to the nature of our platform, EdUnity is built to offer quicker and easier development. The core foundations for any app such as the Core User Interface, Push Notifications and Privacy Settings are already embedded into the framework. This means you can spend more time building the user experience, rather than the mechanics of the app.
As much of the EdUnity Framework is already built to serve needs such as Notifications or Core UI, building for EdUnity takes less time - enabling faster and cheaper development.
Address implementation barriers for schools by connecting seamlessly with a School's existing app. You can sync data, make use of a shared user interface and speed up your sales cycle.

Schools use countless digital platforms and services everyday. Managing multiple apps can present challenges from deployment, to data privacy and the learning curve associated with new apps. EdUnity allows schools to put an end to this, using their existing app as a hub for all their school services.
Schools can add your service in 1-click. Once compatible services are added, your application can automatically be made available to everyone in the School.
Allow schools to securely manage their data with your service. Schools can allow access to data within EdUnity to easily manage aspects like user accounts in a secure manner.
All services inherit the School App's overall design and feel. This dramatically cuts down the learning curve associated with using new services and makes it easier for schools to get started.
We know not every education company has the technical expertise to build app's in-house. This is why we have partnered with a range of Development Agencies that are able to work with our Frameworks and build apps for education.
If you need a Developer to build applications that are compatible with EdUnity, please contact us. We can help you explore requirements and connect you with one of our technical partners.
We welcome registrations from Development Agencies who want to gain certification for working with the EdUnity framework. Please contact us to learn more about the process.
The use cases for integration vary, however, companies that we integrate with will typically serve 1 or more of the following user groups; students, teachers or parents. If one of these groups are your target audience, then building your service so it works with a School's App can have significant benefits across usability, implementation and help optimise your product.
EdUnity is built on a hybrid code-stack, this means you can develop once - and it works across a number of platforms. The end product is no different to building using traditional code stacks or frameworks. The only difference is, aside from working on iOS and the App Store - your service can also work within a School's App. By using our frameworks, development is often quicker and therefore reduces costs. We also keep our frameworks up to date to support the latest devices and technologies so you don't have to.
Though possible, applications which use Virtual Reality (VR) or Augmented Reality (AR) often work best using Native frameworks. Aside from this a wide range of applications can be suitable.
EdUnity is especially good for systems such as Learning Management Systems (LMS), School Management Information Systems (MIS), School Administrative Tools (Bus Tracking/Classroom Feedback), eLearning Content (eBooks, Audio/Video apps) School Uniform Suppliers and much more. We would encourage reaching out if you want to discuss the use cases around your product and explore if EdUnity could be beneficial.
Please contact us to get started and a member of the team will reach out to explore your use case and advise on different options available.
One of the biggest challenges for school's is managing multiple different systems. When each service has its own app, and every app requires its own user account - you can begin to understand why for a school with 500 pupils, 1000 parents and 50 teachers - life can get a little daunting.
This changes with apps that work with EdUnity. When a School has an existing app, they can simply add your service, it's then instantly available to everyone across the school, without the need to worry about deployment. You can also opt to sync information such as names, classes and user status to help organise your app to function, cutting the onboarding time for schools.
Data is an integral part of any school application. Even if it's a user's name, email address and class - keeping this up to date and managing it securely can be a hassle. EdUnity, lets schools sync this automatically whilst respecting the privacy of parents and students. It also means, education platforms can quickly have the information they need without needing to ask the school every time.
When every platform has a different design, it can be a challenge to learn how to use it ("the learning curve"). By embedding your service within a school's app, the learning curve can be significantly cut down. Teachers, parents and students are already familiar with their school's app, so using your service can feel like a natural part of the school's app.
Yes! If a school doesn't have an app, then your application can still be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play and used standalone. Our framework works cross-platform, and doesn't require any modifications to support multiple devices.
The EdUnity framework encompasses much of the groundwork that needs doing when building an app. Core functionality, such as the User Experience, Push Notifications and Privacy Settings already exist. This means, Developers can spend more time on the experience and integration with your service, saving time and resulting in a more cost-effective approach to development.
We built the EdUnity Framework to meet the needs of education businesses. From fast and scalable development - to the features and functionality you need to run your business. Once more, we are constantly evolving the framework to meet and support new devices and platforms.
Companies which integrate with EdUnity are able to use our compatibility badges and access our partner network. Our partnership network lets you reach a new client segment by advertising and targeting school's that have an app or are linked with the EdUnity ecosystem. We also proactively push our partners to schools to raise the awareness of integration potential.
The world of EdTech is fast changing, and technology needs to keep up. Keep your clients assured, that no matter where the industry progresses - that their technology is ready as well.
We can support and provide consultancy on EdTech developments, including consultation on the EdUnity Framework, market status and product direction to meet customer needs.
We can link you to education companies interested in building for the EdUnity Framework. We connect developers to companies looking for technical resources.
