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 want.
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 integrated with Google Apps and available in Google Apps marketplace.
