A simple, web-based control panel allows you to upload news, calendar events, photographs, homework and links to useful resources. There is an alert system for news that just can't wait. The control panel requires no technical knowledge and there is a comprehensive online help system if you get stuck. Integrated workflow allows you to delegate responsibility to multiple teachers whilst still tightly controlling what they can publish.
Parents can customise the communication so that they receive only news that is directly relevant to them.
The desktop Communicator is a lightweight application that runs on every parent's computer. Information is automatically updated every time the school adds new content, even when the Communicator is not currently running. The Communicator launches every morning, so parents see your school news at least once a day.
The School Communicator is also available on mobile smart phones. So no matter where your parents are, they are never out of touch. Our custom mobile applications for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry are offered as standard with no additional charges. For other operating systems there’s our mobile site, accessible by virtually any internet enabled phone.
A weekly newsletter is automatically sent to all parents not using the desktop Communicator. It provides a quick & convenient snapshot of all the information they really need to know - news from the previous week and upcoming events for the week ahead. You can also send out ad hoc emails if you have a special announcement.
The School Communicator offers one-click integration with Facebook and Twitter. Cut & paste widgets to add news and calendar events to your school website. Ask us about ‘web services’ for complete website integration.
Our Message Centre offers full SMS functionality - import users from your existing system, create multiple groups and send messages to as many (or as few) people as you need. Our SMS prices are amongst the most competitive in the industry.
