They are the friendly, neighbourhood coaching centres’ tech-savvy friends

Classpro, Classplus and Proctur are selling SaaS platforms to digitise coaching services and help them expand faster 


Coaching centres are like shrines in this country. They are everywhere. A 2015 government-appointed committee conservatively estimated the coaching industry to be worth Rs.240 billion ($4 billion). Analysts, unofficially, estimate this figure to double by 2025. But only a small percentage — operating in the scale of TIME, FIITJEE or Allen — can offer students the convenience of online classes, with custom-made software. The rest are mom-and-pop establishments that clock attendance on ledgers and hand out photocopied tests.
