Breadth with Real Depth
Cloudskul project started on a foot note back in 2013, I had the vision to develop an educational solution that solves so many problems which I noticed with small schools. The challenge to build a cloud based application that could be trusted by schools and all stake-holders was there since every code we did then in the team was procedural so I knew we could not use such a platform for such an application. After I returned from the UK, the burning desire to start the project grew so I adopted Codeigniter, a good PHP platform to build upon.We just built apps for our existing clients and I started appreciating the educational products we developed with Codeigniter.
The project started after my wedding, on several occasions, my mother in-law, a very busy professor and lecturer will send Her sons and her granddaughters fees to us to pay at the bank, when it happened the first time, I was angry, not because we could not go on the errand for her, but because I felt the school could do more for the parents especially my mother in-law who hardly gets the time for banking activities.
The second time it happened, I was now resolute about a platform to help schools and parents and all stake-holders in primary, nursery and secondary education. Cloudskul was born out of a strong desire to help solve many problems experienced by schools and parents in the education of a child which has been well reflected in the logic behind every code we have written. I can't say we have built the best ever software to handle the problems we identified, but I can say we did our best in developing one of the best product, we have planned updates and based on user feedbacks, we shall be iterating more functions and updates.
We know that some schools already have existing software and their payments are done electronically already, we all know how tough it can get managing such apps, the cost of running and sustaining them and the cost of hiring dedicated software engineers. Cloudskul is saying, stay focused on educating while we take care of the servers, the upgrades, the new features, the bottle-necks involved in managing Cloud-Based applications. We are not taking out your IT departments but empowering them with the best software and tools to move your school forward in an ever competitive educational system

We Focus on What Matters
Nugitech is committed to spending your money wisely. We invest more in product development and customer support than in sales and marketing. It always struck us as pointless to charge the customer more for the privilege of marketing to that customer. By keeping our cost of attracting customers low, we keep our prices affordable. This allows us to be gentle and not pushy in our sales pitch. Our model has worked very well, with growth that is consistently ahead of our major competitors. Our company and our culture are our life's work.
Private and Profitable
That commitment is helped by the fact that we are a private company, and we intend to stay private. We have no outside investors in the company, which makes it easy for us to make this commitment. We are private, but we are not small - with nearly 20 employees, Nugitech has the resources to invest in idea incubation, software development and customer support, which are key pillars of our organization. Our investment in people is a vital part of our success. We have a comprehensive program in incubation to hire school leavers and train them; a program we call Nugi University. Over 15% of our engineers come from this program. Not only is the program good for our company, it is also good for the communities we live in.
