Infrastructure

This is one aspect that can never be turned a blind eye to. It’s the first that may very strongly appeal or not. It’s a factor embedded from the initial most visit or with a glimpse at the brochure. We ensure it’s not disappointing..

Infrastructure

This is one aspect that can never be turned a blind eye to. Apart from the educational necessities an institute offers, it's the first that may very strongly appeal or not. It's a factor embedded in minds from the very first visit or a glimpse at the brochure.
A complete charge is taken over, from carrying out the building operations to hunting down a panel of architects, setting out the interiors along with laying an appropriate and logical plan for the design and its implementation (ergonomic designs/ child friendly/ optimum use of resources/ safety for kids/ relevant norms followed); all of this can be ticked off the list from the hassles they can cause.
Divisions that need special attention like labs and their supplies are also well looked into. We deliver international standards brought to India at affordable costs.

Financing Option

A vision like this is definitely not easy to fund. The foundation provided is not limited to logistics and infrastructure only. In here, we plan and put forth flexible financing options.

Financing Option

Budgeting and financing simply do set the standard for the potential project. We go that extra mile and put forth flexible funding options.

  • We make use of the 'Lease Rental Model' which provides the school infrastructure on long term lease basis and helps reduce upfront capex investment and risk.
  • We can lend our hand to make connections with the Franchisee/JV partner who would work shoulder to shoulder and share the financial commitment towards setting up the school and/or its subsequent operations.
  • An investor is found for setting up all the school infrastructure who strongly believes in the model and is ready to earn returns through a revenue share.
  • We provide advisory services for raising Funds from Banks & NBFC for Potential projects

Licenses & Affiliations

Setting up a school/educational institute from its crux involves way deeper elements than you may think.

Licenses & Affiliations

Setting up a school/educational institute from its crux involves way deeper elements than you may think; each one being as important. Being an educational set up, licenses and affiliations bear more weightage so as to provide smooth functioning.
Essentials like defining its board, getting hold of the State NOC and the local body's permissions and acknowledgements; however taxing a process it would be to get these in place, they have no shortcuts.

Procurement

To keep intact its brand image defined by uniformity, organizations and such institutions are bound to manage their supplies.

Procurement

To keep intact its brand image defined by uniformity, organizations and such institutions are bound to manage their supplies like furniture, uniforms or utilities like shoes way in advance. We ensure such guaranteed management.
With 'Education Supplies' as our model, we prioritize bringing efficiencies in procurement & supply chain for involved institutes by substantial cost benefit of 15-20% to any project related to import supplies. We boast of complete transparency in our 'Cost +' model to bring out unmatchable efficiencies in procurement costs.
We have further ventured into providing convenience to our clients, keeping the one-click funda in mind. This is to help consolidate national procurement through a simply stand-alone system :

  • EKCO to offer an online support system for monitoring of inventory backed at the warehouse.
  • Prices to be fixed based on a MOQ and various centers can place their individual orders.
  • Detailed SOP will be submitted on request.

Service & Facility

There are certain services that speak for overall quality and standards of the institute. These would be basic but are as vital in setting an impression.

Service & Facility

There are certain services that speak for overall quality and standards of the institute. These would be basic but are as vital in setting an impression. We proof read these services while reliable industry players are roped in to handle them specially.
Transport services can in no way go wrong- allotting the right staff for it and its punctual functioning is a mandate here. Children and food services cannot be taken for granted. It thus speaks volumes for if not paid appropriate attention to on time and could cause severe damages. The health concerns for children and others consuming these services along with timely deliveries are factors to be give utmost priority to.
Another backbone service for a school hast to be I.T/hardware. The tech department at all times has to be advanced with its functioning keeping in par with the standard the school promises. Technology today holds ground for an institute and hence it only enhances its educational aspect and cannot be traded for anything else. These are departments that should not cause obstructions and halt the day.
Housekeeping is another crease ironed up. This facility is simply obliged to deliver exceptionally being well informed and trained. It is an area that is a major part of our lay out as this department is responsible to keep a tab on all the utilities that come in and where and how can they be best used.

Play Equipment

When we talk about children, 'toys' and 'playtime' cannot be missed out. With all advancements this area is prioritized too

Play Equipment

When we talk about children, 'toys' and 'play time' cannot be missed out. We don't overlook these aspects either. These are as crucial in the learning and the time children spend at school for. In sync with the educational demands and concerned authorities we chalk out this fun zone with sincerity.
Apart from the aesthetic influence they may have on a space, much thought is put behind the kind of toys and play equipment we supply. Enhancing learning, lots of fun and only adding to the child's development is on our agenda.

Warehouse

This aspect being the most crucial part of our services requires all power proof workings from the very first steps.

Warehouse

This aspect being the most crucial part of our services requires all power proof workings from the very first steps.

  • There are supplies and goods in abundance and it is indefinite in a case of an urgency hence regulation in management of school supplies and the warehouse are top priorities. The next step calls for compiling all these supplies and dispatching them only after detailed supervision.
  • Logistical planning for optimum use of spaces in warehouses to ensure no wastage or delay of any sort is our way of work. A burden is lifted off to manage vendors with help an apt schedule for perfect deliveries.
    We further open up tangled knots skillfully which are likely to hinder the bigger picture.
  • Schools are most unlikely to allocate prime areas in its premises towards storage and stocking of goods needed intermittently during the course of the academic year. Hence, our storage is designed with a grid system in mind– to handle peak pressure of timely dispatches with minimum intervention.
  • It has not been fruitful to depend on vendors who are rather dodgy to confirm and adhere for packing and delivery mandate of schools due to various issues of cost etc. We have trained staff to handle such vendors and sort out under time constraints the material once dumped at the school premises. We also
    take to breaking down a heterogeneous supply into separate stocks that is relatively homogeneous.
  • One cannot in any case afford to mess up with timely delivery to centers/franchises as scheduled. The repercussions may turn out a bit too grave; calling for unnecessary chaos, cost over runs and losses. We have therefore adapted mechanisms to ensure this along with timely intervention on the same
