How we transformed an Excel sheet into an AI business

An AI-powered experience for school admins to help them better understand their school so that they can better help students.


Apps, AI




Initially reliant on Excel for data management, ACSI aimed to modernize its approach to collecting student opinions on various aspects of school life. Watchovr developed an AI system for ACSI, streamlining data analysis to identify strengths and weaknesses in school environments.

Building the system

Three teams worked together on this project: ACSI (the team the platform was built for), Magneti (they focused on planning, designing, and advertising), and Watchovr (the tech whizzes).

  1. Needs Analysis: Initial consultations were held with stakeholders to define the system's objectives and requirements.
  2. User Stories Creation: Short narratives were developed to depict potential user interactions with the system, guiding the design process.
  3. Prototype Design: Preliminary designs were drafted to outline the application's user interface and functionality.
  4. Design Finalization: These sketches were refined into detailed designs, providing clear specifications for development.
  5. Implementation: With a tight 12-week timeline, a small but skilled development team divided tasks between front-end and back-end development to build the application efficiently.

How it turned out

The deployment of the AI-driven platform was met with widespread approval. It automated previously manual processes, significantly speeding up report generation for schools. While specific performance metrics were not provided, the application notably opened a new revenue stream for ACSI. Today, this system is a vital revenue pillar, highlighting the project's success in enhancing operational efficiency and financial growth.

The Takeaway

Through strategic planning and teamwork, an outdated data management method was transformed into a modern, efficient, and revenue-generating system. This initiative not only facilitated quicker, more informed feedback but also established a new financial foundation for ACSI.

“I have nothing but positive words from both my team and my customers. ”

I took a bet on Watchovr and had them build a custom booking web application for my moving company. This software was not only my company’s first impression on new customers, but also the application that facilities majority of the revenue at my company. What I’m trying to say is... I put a lot of trust in the Watchovr team.

After several successful years of using the app they’ve built, I have nothing but positive words from both my team and my customers.

In addition, if anything ever goes wrong with the software, their maintenance team fixes it right away! Thank you for your business, Watchovr!
