  • Cloud Deployment: EntLogics manages deployment, configuration and upgrades.
  • Result: Saving in manpower!
  • CAPEX: investment wrt h/w Infrastructure & recurring s/w license costs
  • Cloud Infrastructure No CAPEX expenditure from Institutions.
  • Result: Huge savings in h/w, s/w and licensing costs. Low TCO.
  • Implementation cycles are longer.
  • Minimum of 6 months to an year to implement
  • Cloud Enablement, configurability & swift data setup allow faster enablement.
  • 2 weeks enablement cycle per institution
  • Result: Quicker ROI (return on investment)
  • Complex and Confusing navigation reduce the usability and force user to remember screens and dialogs
  • Cognitive Apps and Intuitive user interface design enable ease of use and hence the usability
  • Lack of focus on tasks - Lead to multiple clicks and navigation to multiple screens to complete an action
  • System guides the user through the well-defined wizards to complete a task or function
  • Lack of Device support - Need laptop and desktops for usage of the software
  • Device Agnostic. Works on PC, Laptops, tablets and smart screens.
  • Lack of flexibility, Mobility - Access through PC/Laptop forces users to complete the tasks from a designated place
  • Tablets enable mobility, agility and flexibility to track and complete daily tasks.
  • Tablets are handy to manage daily tasks during the event
  • Lack of Offline functionality - Reduce productivity due to the absence of connectivity.
  • Not usable from remote locations
  • Ability to persist data locally on tablet
  • Allows continuing tasks and syncing data when connectivity resumes.
  • Complicated Change Management
  • Due to monolithic architecture, a minor enhancement involve changes in multiple interfaces and hence big turnaround

Advantages over Disparate/ Independent Systems

Disparate Systems

Entlogics ace™

High CAPEX and OPEX:

  • Requires Capital investment for h/w Infrastructure, LAN, UPS and Software Licences.
  • Requires significant investments in resources, efforts and costs for maintaining and managing procured infrastructure and systems by way of AMC, Power Consumption, Space Utilization, 3rd Party License Renewals etc

Low CAPEX and OPEX:

  • Cloud Infrastructure - No CAPEX expenditure from Institutions for landed infrastructure resulting in huge savings in h/w, s/w and licensing costs and therefore low Cost of Ownership.

Huge and Multipoint Data Entry Requirement:

  • Data (student, Parent, Staff, Fees, Phone Numbers, Result etc.) is required to be entered in multiple systems/applications.
  • Data is reentered in all systems and hence more effort and high chances of errors

One Time Data Entry:

  • Data entered one time is available across all apps.
  • Less data entry improves efficiency and no chances of errors.
  • Easy modification of data

Communication capabilities are limited:

  • Only single mode of communication (SMS).
  • Limited amount of Data and information can be shared with Parents.
  • No Real time communication, Inter and intra institution communication (communication with Staff) is possible

Communication – Possibilities are enormous:

  • Multiple communication modes available (SMS, Email and Notifications on Parent App)
  • Any amount of data can be shared with Parents.
  • Cost savings due to Parent App communication & sharing progress reports online
  • Provides inter and intra school staff communication
  • Ability to communicate in Groups
  • Simple to Manage Communication
  • Real Time communication is possible

Dependence on fixed infrastructure:

  • Lack of Device support - Need laptop and desktops for usage of the software.
  • Requires fixed connectivity

Device Agnostic.

  • Works with any Tablet or Smart Phone.
  • Tablets enable mobility, agility and flexibility to track and complete daily tasks.
  • Tablets are handy to manage daily tasks during the event

Cannot work when network is down:

  • Systems require perpetual connectivity to back-end servers and databases.
  • Non availability of connectivity
  • Reduces productivity and cannot use from remote locations

Offline Syncing facility:

  • Ability to persist data locally on tablet
  • Allows continuing tasks and syncing data when connectivity resumes.

3rd Party Integration:

  • Difficult to integrate.
  • Requires significant amount of time in testing, data migration

3rd Party Integration:

  • Integration available to Tally and other 3rd party applications.
  • ace™ also have integrated accounts
Advantages over On Premises Deployed Systems

On Premise Deployment

Cloud Deployment

  • Institute required to hire specialist to manage subsequent installation of improved versions and patches, configuration and administration, else for installation.
  • Institute will need to provide EntLogics secured access to their Server
  • EntLogics manages deployment, configuration and upgrades.
  • Result: Saving in recurring maintenance expenses which can be used invest in better features of the software
  • CAPEX: A sizeable investment with respect to h/w Infrastructure, data centre facilities & recurring s/w license & electricity costs
  • No CAPEX
  • EntLogics takes care of h/w & s/w with the guarantee of 99.99% uptime
  • Result: Huge savings in h/w, s/w and licensing costs
  • For every upgrade in the solution or to resolve any configuration management issue EntLogics needs to sync with the system administrator and try to resolve it leading to delayed response time
  • With EntLogics having control on the solution any software update or resolving any issue would have minimum response time
  • Configuration management will be a joint responsibility of Institute and EntLogics and therefore patch uploading may take time
  • Configuration Management or any Patch upload shall be EntLogics's sole responsibility
  • Data is secure in On Premise Deployment of the solution
  • Data is prone to virus attacks and system failures
  • Data is more secure in On Cloud Deployment as MFA security & continuous backup facility
  • Data is available anytime, anywhere.
  • Business continuity: Institute has to plan disaster recovery for business continuity
  • Auto data mirroring on cloud enables no down time and business continuity
