Bakaláři is the leading school administration system in the Czech Republic, with tens of thousands of teachers, principals, and pupils using it on a daily basis. When the creators decided to transform the original desktop program into a web and mobile app, they encountered issues commonly associated with such a conversion. Here at NetGlade, we were thrilled to take the helm of this challenging process, which required careful planning, innovative problem solving, and evolving various system components.

Our task

The main focus of our work lies in rewriting apps built with legacy technology, such as Delphi or Visual FoxPro, using current-day industry standards. This poses a considerable challenge.

For us, this project is about gaining a perspective on the inner workings of the client’s whole system; that’s why we always evaluate the merit, logic, and function of each individual app. Based on thorough analyses, we seek solutions that meet three basic conditions — the app needs to be easier, faster, and more intuitive. We must simultaneously account for both precise functionality and compatibility with the rest of the system.

Whenever our devs encounter an obstacle, we promptly discuss it with our client. Here’s where our past experiences and passion for tech come into play — because of these things, we can deliver cutting-edge solutions that satisfy basic and advanced users alike. For instance, while reworking the app for school incident reporting, we utilized Vue.js, Whimsical, and the prototyping software Figma. Other Bakaláři apps are running on the serverless services of Microsoft Azure.

In 2021, our cooperation with Bakaláři grew stronger when we were tasked with leading the development of a brand new mobile app for Digiškolka. The finished product consolidates all communication between pre-school teachers and parents into a single app. We developed Digiškolka in line with our client’s vision, without technological setbacks, and delivered a fast and reliable app for both Android and iOS. But our work has just begun. Our dev team frequently adds new teaching modules and updates to the web version.

With Bakaláři and Digiškolka, we’re pushing school administration into the digital era, and we are proud to experience this exciting journey with our long-standing partners at Bakaláři.

"We have been collaborating with NetGlade for 4 years on the development of school information systems Bakaláři and Škola Online, both in their web and mobile form. NetGlade has experienced, and above all enthusiastic developers. Thanks to this, NetGlade is not just another passive supplier, and people from the NetGlade company actively come up with interesting ideas to innovate our products, either functionally or technologically. Their creativity and ability to bring new ideas to our projects allowed us to achieve interesting solutions for our customers. As part of the cooperation, I also appreciate flexibility, independence and the ability to quickly react to changes."
