Allbry (formerly Snaptive) has created a digital counseling service that meets students on their terms in the mobile. The curatorial platform also provides completely new opportunities for schools to collect data and capture problems in time. Through the collaboration with DigitalWell Ventures, Allbry hopes to get more municipalities to open the door to a new way of working.
Many people probably remember the door to the curator’s room at school. Cem Celepli Atci does it, and during the sociology education, the idea of a digital counseling service was born to reduce the stigma of seeking help.
– That’s why we go to work every day. It is easier to open an app than to walk in a door when you are to be exposed to a curator, says Cem Celepli Atci, CEO and founder of Allbry.
Allbry’s app solves several challenges that the physical service struggles with. For example, students can contact the tutor from home and at a time when it suits them. Today, many schools even lack a digital booking system to meet a counselor.
– It is worrying that young people have come last in this digital development. At present, it is also not possible to book an appointment with a psychologist via primary care if you are under 16, says Roza Azimi, co-founder and vice president at Allbry.
Data that changes the conditions
Allbry’s app offers both a chat function and personal meetings, the platform also provides access to relevant data for the school. Curator calls may not be registered, but the curators can easily categorize relevant problem images via the service.
– This is the real innovation. It facilitates the preventive work incredibly much. Today, it is difficult to keep track of how many calls are made and what they are about, says Roza Azimi.
The data generated also creates the opportunity to follow developments in real time, according to Cem Celepli Atci:
– The well-being surveys that are done at school today are very analog, if you have filled in the survey for a week, the situation can be completely different when it is compiled. In our platform you get statistics day by day and can filter different topics, then you can aggregate and see which problems come high on the list at school, class and individual level.
Cem Celepli Atci and Roza Azimi see Allabry’s platform as a door opener for a more individualized and data-driven student health.
