Each passing day coaching institutes are becoming more tech savvy and reliant and are now enabling themselves with the help of technology for providing better learning experiences to students.
Coaching institutes would be relying more and more on tech during this COVID-19 outbreak. Right from using web portals to teaching online to mobile apps for management. then coaching institute management software also helps in better and more effective management of coaching institutes.
As more are more tech services are in demand some companies are trying to grab this opportunity to sell their not-so-reliable tech services to coaching institutes.
Did you purchase any tech service recently for your coaching institute?
If yes did you buy because of the low price or heavy discount offered? It’s a human tendency to fall for offers, discounts, and better bargains and many service providers take advantage of these situations. These service providers will provide services to you at unbelievable costs almost for free!
Have you ever thought about why these service providers are able to offer you services for much cheaper costs?
There are many reasons why some important tech services are offered at immensely low costs as compared to other companies.
They may sell your data!
-firstly there are some companies who offer tech services e.g. SMS sending services can directly sell your student databases with other companies and make money out of it. In this case, the institute that is availing its services faces a huge risk of data theft.
Weak tech infra
-Secondly, the companies who offer services at a cheaper cost most of the time use cheaper tech infrastructure which adds a huge risk in using their products. Fore. g. if servers, where these companies host data, are not secured then all the data on the server is at risk. Better companies will use for e.g. amazon web servers to host their data and applications which will make it secure.
No after-sales support
-Thirdly some of these tech companies are just sales oriented with minimal focus on after-sales services and so the clients suffer a lot due to the poor after-sales support provided by the company.
Can be a Heavily funded company
There is another breed of companies that are heavily funded and their focus is client acquisition at any cost and then as the focus is just client acquisition the clients have to run after these companies for support.
So how can coaching institutes do better in terms of choosing tech service providers?
- Do Research about your tech service provider and their services.
- Check your tech service provider’s credentials
- Look at their testimonials
- Attend Product demos -don’t miss them
- Ask questions to the Sales team during the demo
- Check their ability to provide after-sales support
- Check if your data is private and safe
- Which is the server the company is using to host their applications
- Check if they can properly migrate your data -A lot of times there are data migration issues that such companies cannot tackle and the customer is the one who has to suffer.
