We’re thrilled to announce that EdSmart now integrates with innovative event ticketing platform Humanitix.
For EdSmart schools, the new Humanitix-EdSmart integration represents a best-in-class tech partnership that makes organising events cleaner and easier.
However, there’s more to Humanitix than events and ticketing. As a registered charity, 100% of their booking fee profits go to supporting disadvantaged kids worldwide. This is an objective that fits with EdSmart like a hand-in-glove.
“EdSmart’s platform is dedicated to making life easier for parents, students and school staff, and through that, helping make schools run better,” says David Eedle, CEO of EdSmart. “That’s essentially why we founded the company; because we wanted to make a difference and help the educators do what they do best: educate. To partner with a social enterprise like Humanitix, people who walk the talk, is very exciting for us because we can see our values come to life even more vividly through them.”
As the Humanitix team professes, their social enterprise is an experiment in compassionate capitalism and a new model for charity and business through ticketing. Humanitix’s ultimate vision is a world where all businesses, structures and systems work in harmony with humanity to serve the best interests of all people and our planet.
“We already service a number of schools, some of them EdSmart customers,” says Joshua Ross, Co-Founder of Humanitix. “It made perfect sense for us – as a social enterprise focussed on helping children thrive who may not otherwise get that opportunity – to partner with an EdTech platform like EdSmart and open ourselves and our mission to more and more schools around the world. We see this partnership as facilitating schools to help other schools, which is really wonderful.”
Along with the warm, fuzzy feeling users of Humanitix get to enjoy, the powerful tech integration with EdSmart’s School Organisation System sees schools significantly strengthen their event planning power through customised workflows, automation and checks & balances.
Those schools using Humanitix integrated into EdSmart can include a Humanitix purchase as part of an EdSmart Parent Slip, ask parents to complete a Humanitix payment before they submit their Parent Slip, and then see at a glance who has paid and returned their Parent Slip for consolidated reporting.
“We’re confident that our schools will be delighted by the quality of the integration between EdSmart and Humanitix,” adds David. “We’re also pleased to say that, with Humanitix, we’ve found a partner who is just as committed as we are to making the tech experience for schools as fit-for-purpose and as functional as possible.”
“The team at EdSmart is really excited about what this partnership will bring.”
