Hyderabad, February 17, 2020: Classplus, India’s leading platform for teachers and coaching centres to go digital, has announced the opening of two new offices in Hyderabad and Bengaluru. Currently headquartered in Noida, this move will help Classplus strengthen its presence in these key geographies, both of which are highly acclaimed for the quality of their educators and the academic excellence they instil. A presence in these locations will also empower Classplus to better service their growing customer base across Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Karnataka, which has witnessed massive growth over the last 12 months.
Over the course of the next year, these offices will expand the Classplus team with over 100 new employees across entry, mid and senior-level positions. Hiring across engineering, product, and business development will see the platform upgraded with the latest technological advancements, making the digital coaching process easier than ever before. Inspired by the hard work and determination of educators in Southern India, this expansion will see Classplus strengthen the wider educational framework in the region.
Commenting on the announcement, Mukul Rustagi, Co-Founder, Classplus, said, “We are excited for this phase of growth in the Southern states. South India is a critical geography for us and sets the bar for academic excellence nationwide; as such, we are dedicated to strengthening the region’s educational ecosystem, powered by the great product and technology behind Classplus. We wish to empower all educators with a world class product and launch their online teaching business through Classplus."
South India has always been a key geography for Classplus, and professionals from the region have played a vital role in the platform’s Pan-India success. This includes a number of key C-suite roles, including the company’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO), in addition to the engineering team based out of the existing Classplus office in Bengaluru. Going forward, Classplus aims to further build on its presence in workforces and workplaces across Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
Classplus empowers all teachers and coaching institutes with a mobile app allowing them to build their online identity, share study material, take live classes, and grow their student base. More so, they can even sell their content thereby setting up a new source of income for themselves. In a world where offline businesses were disrupted, teachers needed a consolidated platform rather than using different tools for all their communication, live classes, and study material sharing purposes. This is where Classplus became the digital identity for more than 50,000 teachers, making it the favourite app for educators across the country.
Classplus, is a mobile OS that enables coaching institutes to take their brick and mortar setups online. In India, 70M+ students take tutoring every year with offline coaching institutes capturing the bulk of that market. Classplus aims to streamline this massive and fragmented market by helping tutors run all their communication, payments, assessments and online learning programmes on a full-stack mobile solution that doubles up as their online content repository. Classplus was launched in 2018 by Mukul Rustagi and Bhaswat Agarwal. With 50,000+ educators and 10M+ students across 1100+ Indian cities using Classplus, they have become the category leaders in India.
