Q: Tell us about Yuva Parivartan.
Q: You must have for sure, faced a lot of difficulties to convince underprivileged children from poor families for take up training or further education. Can you talk a little on that?
Q:Since you are a non-profit organization, you must have faced issues with pricing and licensing when you wanted an erp software solution. How have Fedena helped you in this.
YP: As we are an NGO, we were looking for an application that would suit our needs and at the same time would be affordable to us. Thanks to Unni, who advised us that the Saas Model would be very expensive, and suggested that we go for on-premise model, without looking at maximizing his profit. With his help and understanding, we now have the application hosted on our server which would help us in a long way, and the application would well be in our control. Unni also provided us with unlimited schools license as well as unlimited users license hence completely eliminating our growth cost impact.
Q:You offer vocational courses unlike other colleges. How difficult was it for you to look for the right erp software for your organization since most ERPs are ideal for regular courses.
YP: Our courses are short term which is for a duration of 3 months and for different trades. Thanks to Foradian who understood our need, helped in customization and designed an application that has suited our purpose. Also, we have undertaken some workarounds in our business operations to ensure a maximum usage of the system to cater to our needs. However, saying that the core operations of students admissions, course definition, fees collections, examinations and reports generation remains common across any form of formal education hence, Fedena fit our requirements.
