Hello, We Are ManageBac.We build turnkey systems to help the world’s leading schools implement and manage their IB programmes efficiently. We were founded in 2006 in protest of inferior software. We strive for excellence and clarity.
Our Core Principles
We deliver efficiency.
We measure our success by the amount of time saved and paperwork eliminated.
Our schools are our investors.
They fund our development by paying for our service and by providing us with new ideas. We answer to them.
Software should be affordable.
Which is why our service is priced reasonably with no server required.
We are patient long-term builders.
Benjamin Franklin once said, “Energy and persistence conquer all things.” We work hard to build great software and to exceed expectations.
We don’t nickel and dime.
Our competitors love charging fees for setup, online training, maintenance and upgrades. We do not. There are no hidden fees and no surprises. We operate transparently.
Great service matters.
We take our responsibility seriously. We pride ourselves on our fast e-mail replies and 24/7 accessibility. Whether you are in Hong Kong, Geneva or New York, we are awake when you are.
