The Mission

Recherche Tech, with its My sCool Server offering aims to usher in a socioeconomic revolution by making computer literacy and therefore digital inclusion affordable and achievable across all strata of society.

The Motivation

Herein, below we briefly present the key factors that lead to the innovation of the My sCool Server and which keep us motivated towards our mission.

Computer literacy in India is at an abysmal low of < 7%.

Minimum 500 million youth shall be entering the workforce in the next decade.

At least 70% of jobs shall need skilled labour and at a minimum 50% of these will require computer literacy of varying levels.

To fuel this mammoth demand, the government, the industries and all stakeholders shall need innovative, yet affordable solutions.

The My sCool Server has been custom built and packaged, keeping in mind the challenges that the administrators and students face in the wake of an ever evolving, fast-paced literary landscape. It is for those who do not compromise on the quality of tools they use to educate the next generation of our world.

The Vision

Recherche Tech aspires to be the leader in innovative, affordable and inclusive application of open source IT in the educational segment.

 

Recherche is an adjective, meaning rare, exotic or obscure. Recherche Tech LLP has come into existence with the sole purpose of bringing the exotic and obscure technologies to the forefront with the help of deep research and innovation to benefit the masses.
