BANGALORE, India, Sept. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Fedena (http://www.fedena.com) is a free and opensource campus management software developed by
Foradian Technologies, a three year old Indian startup. Even though the
startup originated in a small town of South India, Fedena is now used
in Schools, Colleges and Universities all around the world. Fedena also
won the prestigious MIT TR35 2012 India Award for Innovation in
Education domain recently.
The most notable implementation of Fedena is by the education department
of Government of Kerala, India who uses Fedena to automate all system
and process of 15,000 Schools with 7 million students in the state
using Fedena hosted on cloud.
Fedena is not the only campus management solution available in the
market. There are thousands of small and big software companies
offering the same kind of solution. But Fedena stands out from the
competition by solving two of the biggest problems in the market. First
problem is the fact that each and every school and college around the
world have their own system and process. They demand the software to be
customized as per their requirements. Fedena comes with a plugins
architecture which allows customization over an API. So anyone can
build new plugins on top of Fedena, without changing the core source
code. The basic version of Fedena is available as free and open source.
The freedom is in user's hands to change the software the way they
The second problem is most schools are still finding it hard to use the
software's available in the market even after customization. Fedena
solves this by providing an efficient user experience and interface
design. Anyone with basic knowledge in computers can start using Fedena
within 10 minutes of their first login.
The non-free version of Fedena, named as Fedena Pro generates revenue
for Foradian Technologies. Fedena Pro offers 25+ plugins and paid
services for interested customers. Fedena Pro is now available as a
mobile web app using HTML5 technology. It supports the most used
features of Fedena through a mobile interface. Fedena Pro is also
