About the Client

The Varanasi based school was  established in 1998 and has spread its wings in two  different suburbs of the city namely Shivpur and Harahua.

With a huge experience at various schools for nearly 15 years owner of the school set-up the small school to impart top quality primary education to children.

Each school have  40 staff members that include 25 teachers and 15 other members.


Before implement the payroll software in the school , owner of the school discussed various challenges with us, some of them are mentioned below:

  • At the first interaction with the owner, he discussed about the  difficulties he was facing while processing the salary of two different school’s staff. He manage the salary process through excel and it was time consuming task.He required a single platform to manage both of the schools.
  • Salary processing was Decentralized.
  • He required a software which can sync with bio metric machine easily so that he do not have export data from bio metric machine through external drives. In his wish list, he said I want to make salary process automatic and I could access the software anytime from anywhere. 
  • Moreover, real time attendance status for late comers and  leave management was the concern for the owner because it became difficult for him to manage if any teacher here was absent or on a leave.
  • Required a leave policy plan where he could fix the number of leaves allowed in a month. Moreover, short breaks (2 or 3  hours break from work) was the pain where staff members ask short leave for their personal work which was difficult to manage manually.


To overcome from the mentioned challenges, Zenscale implemented the following features from the payroll software

  • Leave and short leave policy could be configured in the system
  • Automatic attendance sync of Bio metric with the system and alerts for any manual intervention
  • Attendance based incentives policy could be pre-configured
  • Multiple user creation and admin (owner) could have a full control over the software
  • Analytical reports for the owner.
