Intelligent Operations for Education

In 1999, a small company with a funny-sounding name introduced a unique software platform aimed at helping schools gain visibility and control into their operational performance. It was the early days of the cloud, and the idea of an externally-hosted software solution that could help schools of all sizes to improve their maintenance processes was a revolutionary one. Nearly 20 years later, the SchoolDude platform by Dude Solutions is the de facto standard in school operations management. Today, thousands of schools (ranging from public to independent, K-12 to higher education) and over 1.5 million users are experiencing the power of The Dude for optimizing the management of their most critical facility and operational processes. And best of all, we’re just getting started.
