The STOPit system is now available for roll-out to South African schools.

With 7 000 schools and 3-million users across the US, Canada, Singapore, Japan and Australia showing a reduction in bullying and abuse, STOPit is set to make its mark in SA as well.

The system facilitates anonymous two-way communication, via an app, between a learner and an administrator at a school.

The administrator captures all the information into a web-based case management system called DOCUMENTit, where cases are tagged, shared, investigated and managed.

Powerful analytics are then used to get a clear picture of the issues and protocols can be put in place to further combat incidents of all types.
