The Story

Fundacion Educacional Arco Iris Bajo el Sol, located in Quillota, Chile, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing free treatment and education for children with cognitive disabilities under the age of 21. The foundation operates with the objective of using all the resources received from the government to benefit the school and enhance the education provided to the children.

“Our organization’s mission is driven by a commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of these children and ensuring they receive the necessary support to thrive. The energy and inspiration that children provide serve us as a motivation for constant continue of the work and make a difference in their lives”, mentioned the Director of Fundacion, Cristóbal Arévalo Lagos.

“As part of our activity at Fundacion Educacional Arco Iris Bajo el Sol, we wanted to move away from using paper-based processes and manual record-keeping. We didn't have a centralized database for student records, so we decided to develop a software solution that could store and manage this data efficiently. It was also important for us to digitize and organize content related to evaluations, treatments, and medication for each student. This way, our staff members can easily access this important information whenever they need it.”

Another important requirement was to develop a platform for teachers to upload and submit documents pertaining to the school plan and class education plans. By creating an online system, they aimed to eliminate the issues they faced with printing and formatting errors. The goal was to simplify the process, generate PDF’s automatically, and store them directly in the database.

Furthermore, Fundacion Educacional Arco Iris Bajo el Sol recognized the need to track and document the treatments conducted by speech therapists for students with speech disabilities. Personnel of Fundacion sought to develop a reporting system or form where therapists could input the details of each session, enabling the director and responsible personnel to access this information easily.
CRM system development had to be custom-built to meet the specific requirements set by the Chilean Department of Education, including the need for regulatory procedures of data backup and submission for сompliance and internal audits.

Overall, the CRM system being developed by the organization serves as a solution to streamline their administrative processes, enhance data management, improve accessibility to student records, and digitize various documents and reports.
