Chocolate SMS started almost ten years ago, a course management system being written for a single language school by one of the school’s directors, an IT professional.
Over the years, as the school expanded and became British Council accredited and ISI inspected, we added new features. We knew that the system was improving our efficiency and reducing errors without increasing administrative staff numbers, and our inspections confirmed that the SMS was helping us provide a great service to students and agents, and helping us ensure safeguarding.
Two years ago it was time for the SMS to move forward - it was redeveloped in the latest web technologies to be delivered as a service from the cloud. We don’t have any servers at the school now, we just need an Internet connection to work - our school directors can manage the school whether they are at home, in the office, or on a marketing trip.
This year, Chocolate SMS was launched, a School Management System that we know works for UK language schools and continues to be developed for those schools.
