I was randomly searching for the top education software development companies in Singapore and found the top six educational software developers, who are really very innovative when it comes to bringing education online. It wasn’t a surprise for me that Nimble AppGenie ranked second on that list.
Before we get straight to knowing the strengths and weaknesses of their educational software development services, let me give you a brief overview of the EdTech market in Singapore.
A report by The Insight Partners states that the e-learning market in Singapore was valued at $792.97 million in 2019. With a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 13.6%, the market is estimated to reach $2,228.74 million by 2027.
Schools and higher education institutions in Singapore are very much interested in adopting education software solutions. The popularity of educational industry softwares in Singapore is primarily increasing due to the need for solutions like LMS (Learning Management Solutions) and self-learning.
Even the Singapore government is heavily involved in digitizing the education system. A few years ago, the government launched a master plan named eGov2015. Their purpose behind the plan is to integrate the economic ecosystem including systems, processes, and service delivery related to educational infrastructure.
Okay, so we’ve talked a bit about the EdTech market trend in Singapore. Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at the top education software development companies catering to the Singapore market.

Factors You Should Consider Before Selecting Education Software Development Company
Not every educational software developer will fit your specific EdTech development needs. Maybe your app idea has already been successfully executed and you need a similar app. Or you have an innovative app idea in your mind and want to recruit a EdTech solution development company that has innovation at their core. Every situation requires a specific skill set and on behalf of this, you should pick your EdTech development company.
The following are the things that you need to know about the EdTech development company before you select them as the education technology solution providers for your business idea.
- Ask the company about their previous work in the education industry.
- Understand their development approach and thought process. (visit their blog section to know their thoughts and opinions)
- Ask them about their collaboration methods.
If you are not convinced by your first choice, it is always recommended to reach out to a few development companies and compare their proposals. The Following are the questions you should ask while reaching out to them:
- What will be the cost of development?
- How long will the different development process take?
- What will be their approach to project management?
- How will they ensure quality?
- What will be their payment structure? Will it be lump-sum or phases wise?
Don’t forget to sign an NDA with the development companies. You should share your business/app idea only after the NDA has been signed. You can refer to the following article to find the right software development partner for your business - How to find the Right Mobile App Development Company?
