Dataful, an open data-based information hub, is going to develop a web-based application to bring school enrollment information to the fingertips of parents around the country.
The company made the announcement at the closing ceremony of the Bangladesh Open Data Summit held virtually on Monday, said a press release.
At that time, Dataful's founder Palash Dutta showcased the trial run of the web-based application in front of all present at the summit.
During the summit, Palash said, "With just one click, parents can get the information about the desired school they want their children to get enrolled in. They do not have to spend time and energy to travel to those institutions to collect the information."
