Find what's right for you

We know that not everybody is going to choose epraise, and that's fine. Competition is great for schools, because it means cheaper prices, more innovation and most importantly, better outcomes for students. So that we can make the decision making process quicker and easier for schools, we've compiled some information and some comparisons below to highlight both our and our competitor's strengths.

Which should we choose?

Obviously we'd like you to choose epraise, but we know you need to compare products before you make a decision, so here's a handy company comparison table. Note that some companies don't list all information (e.g. their prices) so there are a few you might have to fill in yourself. Don't forget to consider things like the financial stability of the company and the reliability of their platform.

What features does each product have?

One theme of the last few years has been in the use of a single platform to perform many tasks. At epraise, we think this a great idea, so here's a checklist of what our platform and our competitor platforms can and can't do.
