Myly itself is a cloud-based mobile-only platform which allows for the simplification of many processes involved in education. These include easier communication and financial transactions. Meanwhile, students can also message each other, as well as their teachers, through this app. Otherwise complicated procedures such as homework, images and attendance can be taken care of easily via a simple, one-solution-fits-all platform. Moreover, in order to make fees payment easily, Myly has allowed for the complete integration of its services with Paytm. Gone are the days when fees payment would involve complicated procedures and the hectic checking of deadlines!!! Myly makes every education-related process fun, enjoyable and effortless.
Among other ed tech startups which have raised funding recently are Smartivity and Springboard(previously called SlideRule). However, Myly’s adherence to quality standards is certain to keep it a step ahead of the rest.
