Therefore, the objective of this research is to implement a web platform to optimize the enrollment process in educational institutions, taking into consideration the availability, integrity and confidentiality of the information.The system development methodology was divided into 3 phases. Start; The problem, the functional and non-functional requirements were defined, the technologies to be used for development were evaluated and the system prototypes were designed. Development; The Frontend was designed by programming the functional requirements and the architecture of the database was developed in the Backend. Transition; A feedback was made correcting errors by users through a usability test.In this sense, it was possible to carry out the registration process in a virtual way, complying with social distancing, preventing citizen insecurity, optimizing processes in a fast and efficient way, preserving information security.The web platform made it possible to reduce the digital gap for the use of information technologies (IT) between the institution and parents, reducing educational inequality with an inclusive education, taking a step towards digital transformation in an equitable and transparent way.
