Roll call and weekend signouts.

What would you say to other schools looking to implement Boardingware at their school?

A must-have to protect you if things do go wrong and come back at you in 10 years time.

What made you choose Boardingware over the other options out there?

Not many options out there. The features suited our needs.

Is there any final thoughts or words you would like to share?

For South African schools the costs seem high. But when you break it down per pupil and what it gives you in terms of piece of mind, I think it is so worth it.
