With all the new modern technological advances in every aspect of our lives and the applications that blend with them growing in numbers, there has always been a missing link. Schools and work environments have been struggling for a program that could save and transfer data in real time while being user-friendly. Teachers and students could work together harmoniously, attaining flexibility while keeping some students from falling behind, achieving true collaboration.
The Massive Demand for Information-Sharing
By using smartphones, laptops, and iPads, we now can work and study from many different devices all at the same time. We often have our best ideas outside of the work/school environment, and we’ve needed software that could keep pace with our personal growth anywhere we go and at any time—all these while saving data in a plethora of different formats.
Coders have been racking their brains for it seems like forever, trying to come up with a streamlined software that could transfer images and data easily. Across all schools and work establishments, information continues to explode forward at a faster rate than anticipated. The need to share information is greater than ever. This has been a constant problem at schools for teachers and students who are trying to effectively share discoveries and integrate new ideas and record the data.
A study done in the USA found out that the average house consumes 6.9 zettabytes — that’s 6.9 million gigabytes a year. Even if the information from work- and school-related data was just 1/10 of the data transferred, that would still be 690,000 gigabytes of data being used per year. That’s just from home use, not including what schools are consuming!
New and More Complex Format Editions
We also have many different numbers of formats that our files from schools and work are being saved in. Whether you’re situated in a school environment or workplace, there has always been a need to collaborate successfully in real time, with no delay.
It is very frustrating when teachers, students, and employees are working and evolving together regardless of the subject matter at hand but repeatedly having problems with formats and data transfer. This interrupts and slows down progress for everyone. There have been many failed attempts to come up with a software platform that could handle file transfer and different formats with ease. DOXC, PDF, Google Docs, and MS Word files are just some examples. We want something so easy to learn that even a child could learn to use it. That is where Kami comes into play.
The Importance of Kami in School & the Work Place
From projects in school – art, music, science, theater, etc. – it is very important to be able to upload and download data that has been documented or recorded in different formats. We then need to share the data efficiently without errors or time delays. With Kami, you can work on most of your files online without any issues occurring.
When finished, you can sync your data back to your Google Drive or your hard drive and make sure your data is safe. For example, students could access their lessons from home and then submit their assignments digitally. Another plus is that the security is guaranteed because all files are encrypted with SSL. Kami even offers advanced ORC technology, with e-signatures available as well. When you use Kami, you can view, edit, annotate, share, and collaborate all your files with ease, leaving plenty of time to focus on your work.
