About the Organization
The/Nudge Institute focuses on alleviating poverty and skill development, concerning the underprivileged youth and rural livelihoods.
Future Perfect program (part of The/Nudge Institute) is providing training for youth from lower-income communities to make them job-ready. Future Perfect Product Team has partnered with EdZola to utilise technology for greater impact.
Schools, colleges, universities and other financial institutions have been forced to shut their doors to students as the country has been in either a total or partial lockdown due to covid-19.
All organisations were required to go online to thrive and the Future Perfect program was no exception. Before 2020 March, the CSDE division of The/Nudge Institute was running the Future Program as an in-person setup. The pandemic made them realise the need for digitisation and to adapt to the circumstances.
EdZola and Future Perfect product Team worked on building the backend Management Information System (MIS) to manage the entire data of the program.
EdZola used Zoho Creator to build the entire platform as it requires little to no coding, thus quickly building efficient applications and systems. Uncertain times necessitated the Future Perfect Product team to innovate and experiment, which the platform handled smoothly. Thus, over 10+ data sources and Apps were integrated through Zoho creator as it allows freedom for customization to optimise the workflow and provide better customer satisfaction
Customised Data Profiles and Dashboards
Data is valuable once it is gathered and personalised accordingly. EdZola worked on creating profiles on every user to understand them better. It also created customised dashboards for Trainers, Team Leads, Telecallers, Verifiers etc., to have easy access to the specific data that they need to manage the workflow.

"It has been great to work with the EdZola team for our Future Perfect Application. The team goes the extra mile to deliver outcomes. Their expertise in all things Zoho and integrating Zoho with external applications has been the backbone to scaling our program. The team always thinks of the big picture and how each tiny feature change would affect the application as a whole and delivers quality outcomes even with fast paced timelines. It has been an absolute pleasure working with the team and would highly recommend this stellar group of people to be the ones helping any organisation's digital transformation journey"
