NoPaperForms Acquires Intelliadmissions In An All Cash Deal, Eyes To Strengthen UniApply In Maharashtra
The three year old start-up had recently launched UniApply: The Common Application Platform, to spearhead digitization of School Admissions for Parents and Schools alike.
NoPaperForms, the Enrolment Automation Giant, has announced its acquisition of Mumbai-based Intelliadmissions in an all-cash deal for an undisclosed amount. Intelliadmissions (a product of Intellinects Ventures) is an online school admission platform that bridges the gap between parents and schools. With over 200 schools under its belt, it has a strong presence in over six major cities of Maharashtra. This would enable NoPaperForms’ UniApply to catalyse its expansion to Maharashtra and neighbouring states: a major boost to the team’s plan to scale UniApply to 100 cities in record time.
Talking about the acquisition, Ronald D’Souza, Founder and Director of Intelliadmissions said that since 2013, he has been committed to using technology to improve the overall effectiveness of the school admission landscape. Intelliadmissions was a step in that direction and its recent acquisition by NoPaperForms would yield synergistic effects for both the enterprises.
“Our goal is to support schools and parents to help their children become the best that they can be. We can now leverage the advanced tech stack of NoPaperForms to provide a delightful experience to schools and parents alike. We will look into expanding our services to better enable our existing client base, hand in hand with the #Zabardast team of NoPaperForms,” he further added.
UniApply is a Common Application Platform. With its revolutionary “One Form, Many Schools” approach it makes it possible for Parents to apply to various schools in one go. With over 30,000 verified parents visiting the site daily, UniApply is fast replacing the ever tiring and outdated school admission process. This can be gauged from this observation by Amit Ranjan, Former Co-Founder of SlideShare. He tweeted “This was needed SO BADLY! Few years back, I had to apply to 18 diff schools for my daughter's nursery admission (this is par-for-the-course in Delhi)!” sharing a picture of the front-page advertisement of the UniApply Delhi NCR Launch.
“UniApply is our answer to the perennial problem of a messy, unstructured school admission process. Intellinects has an advanced vertical product stack ranging from School Admissions to the Student Lifecycle Management, which fuses very well with what we offer. The talented team and the unique competencies they bring to the table will add tremendous value to the UniApply offering ” said Naveen Goyal, the Founder and CEO of NoPaperForms.
“We began with transforming admissions in the Higher Education vertical and have been quite successful and now our new mission is to replicate the same, in the much messier School Admissions, with UniApply. I am sure the acquisition will significantly speed up the process,” he further added.
Sharing his plans for UniApply, Naveen said that the team is all ready to swoop in to opportunities and bring UniApply “to over a hundred cities, its first milestone.” He also hinted that there might be more news coming in very soon.
