1. Tell parents about your events. When you add an event to the App, Parents/Students automatically receive an alert to their phones. Result? More parents at your events!
2. Get urgent news to parents quickly, everyone has their smartphone with them – wherever they are. So, get hold of Parents/Students quickly when there’s an emergency – the boiler is broken or there’s six feet of snow outside the door! You can send a push notification that alerts those with your app that there is something new.
3. Send messages that are longer than texts and cost nothing – you can send as many messages as you want and there is no per-message charge as with the old text-based systems.
4. Reach hard-to-reach parents – an app with a translation service means parents can choose which language they read your content in. We have over 100 languages to choose from. You can increase parental engagement and make everyone feel included.
5. Make your newsletters and other big documents available – you can put links to your newsletters, lunch menus, homework timetables in the app. Anything that can be linked to can be made available in your app!
6. Have your contact details within easy reach – parents won’t need to look up your email or phone number – they can reach you directly from your contact page. They can press a button to phone you or email you – all from your contact screen.
7. Have complete control! We will give you access to an easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS) and all content can be added by you. As soon as you put something in there and press send – it appears in the apps. No waiting around for someone else to add your content. Instant access and control for you.
