Proxynet, Samsung offering to enhance local education

28 November 2013, 14:03Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - Proxynet, the local information technology firm, has partnered with Samsung Electronics to upgrade the version of its school management software to key stakeholders in the Nigerian tertiary and secondary education.

Called ProSkool, the solution now contains features that enable email to parents, proper management of staff roll, a click to view student billing status, and importantly, monitoring of student's class progress, among other new features.

Speaking at the workshop in Lagos to showcase the technology, Ifeanyi Ozo-Onyali, Managing Director, Proxynet Communications, said that in the contemporary Nigeria, ProSkool was no longer an option for a result focused school but a necessity.

Ozo-Onyali, said that ProSkool provided a good management system to effectively manage the ever-growing school and thus simplifying school workloads.

“ProSkool is a complete school management system that has changed the DNA of many schools. It is a prescription that manages both students and staff records seamlessly, thus simplifying school management procedures,” he said.

While Proxynet provides the information management software, Samsung Electronics is providing the large format display, also known as e-Board.

Rotimi Agboola Anu, Product Manager, Samsung Electronic West Africa Limited, said that Samsung is delighted to be part of the project that would redefine Nigerian schools.

He said that the recent developments in display technology had opened new avenues of information sharing and presentation for education and business applications.

“Touch display technology is becoming commonplace, providing stimulating new ways to attract and hold the attention of audiences, whether in a classroom or business environment. So, we at Samsung Electronics West Africa deemed it wise to be part of the Proxynet’s project to ensure that our schools become like others. The technologies we have displayed today are well suited to support various learning and business applications,” he said.
