Case Study - 1

A young startup founder succeeds with Ikas Tech's turn key software service


Armed with a globally leading Founder Institute startup launch program graduation, Ikas’ client is a budding entrepreneur with a great idea of providing an effective mobile app based solution for kids information connecting teachers and parents and providing valuable information about activity updates in real time. This is one shop app that is required for all information about kids in preschool/daycare.


Having gone through the systematic process of building a startup from scratch, this young client is challenged with the ominous task of realising his dream idea of providing a complete solution to daycare or preschool incorporating latest technology. The dream was to build a world class mobile app solution connecting parents with the their kids activities as updated by teachers.

In the earlier aborted attempt of another startup idea, this client has had a bad experience with a freelancing software developer. This time this client was hell bent on going with an established company with a reliable software development service. Also, the mobile app needed to be progressively elaborated and built with daycare owners, teachers and parents feedback.

In keeping with the above and adopting latest technology, the client wanted to build a mobile app based solution and was looking for a expert technology partner who can support in not only designing and developing mobile apps but also someone that can support in deploying, maintaining and supporting this ambitious venture. Simply put, the challenge for him was finding an apt technology partner that could make or break the project.


The relation with the client was more that of a partnership rather than a client-vendor relationship. In this relationship, Ikas provided its vast technology expertise in shaping the solution and delivered in timely manner. The whole engagement consisted of orders in the progressive nature as

  • designing a unique UI
  • a responsive website to provide information about the solution and promoting the service
  • cost effectively hosting the website in Amazon S3
  • development, testing and delivery of Day Care software solution inclusive of web based admin module, Android and iOS mobile apps - two different versions for teachers and parents

Teacher Module

The teacher app helps the teacher record the activities in a timely basis and update the parents. The module consists of Classroom, Feed, Attendance, Schedule and Messaging.

Admin Module

The admin module helps define the initial system of the day care/preschool with the features for daycare owner and class teacher.

Based on initial daycare customers adoption and requirement, follow up change requests in attendance and food services were implemented. As the client felt that more daycare centers were opting for customising their brand, the whole solution was SaaSified (made as a Software as a Service model)
