The current target market for this product are primarily those in primary school. The company not only makes money from the use of its app, but also through the selling of their books. The startup plans to add a subscription option eventually to app.
Elias Elisante, the co-founder and CEO of TanzDevs, says that the app has helped to increase the engagement of students in the learning process. The means that has been supplied is also cost-efficient and easy to use.
With its reaches extending through even the more remote areas, Smart Darasa provides to quality education to many. Considering the short attention spans of younger ages, this interactive app will surely accel even further in popularity with its new, interactive approach to learning.

The startup offers more services besides the development of mobile apps including website development, graphics design, and computer repair and maintenance.
