Our lives are busy. It seems there’s always something to do and somewhere to be. Parents often need to contend with looking after the children while they are both working full-time jobs and life seems to be a constant juggling act between one thing and another.
Coping with everything the world throws at us, however, has been made easier in recent times with the development of some great digital technology. For schools, teacher and parent communication apps are proving very useful – not only are they easy to use but they can give parents access to all the information they need.
Developing Your Communication App
Thanks to Parent Apps it’s never been simpler to develop a dedicated school app that puts everyone in the communication loop. Most parents, pupils and teachers nowadays have some form of portable smart device, whether that’s a mobile phone or a tablet. Apps have become common for everything from social media engagement and shopping to keeping track of the news, to name just a few.
You don’t need to spend a large amount of your school budget developing a teacher and parent communication app either. Our team can offer your school a tailored solution for less than you might think, without spending too much time at the development stage.
All you need to do is decide what you want your school app to do and how you want to improve teacher and parent communication. At Parent Apps, this involves working with our specialist team to uncover all the possibilities and how we can help you get exactly the solution you need.
- Do you want an app that helps you send notifications to parents almost instantaneously?
- Do you want to be able to provide resources to your parents and teachers that they can access wherever they are in the world?
- Would you like to send out reminders for school events without having to use the full resources of your admin department to send out messages?
- Do you want to give your parents easy access to your website and school contact details and policies?
With a dedicated app, you can pick and choose how teachers and parents engage. If you provide school meals and want parents to know what’s on the menu each week, you can. If you want to integrate your school app with social media to create better engagement, you can do that too.
Introducing an effective teacher and parent communication app not only increases the level of engagement but also saves money. You are no longer using admin staff to send out messages and reach out to parents, it’s much simpler to do with a dedicated and responsive app. It also allows you to develop a more effective and efficient communication strategy that takes over from mail, email, texting and phoning.
Creating a school app is also a greener way of operating. You are using less energy and less in the way of resources, all of which will save you money which can be better used elsewhere. It’s no surprise that many schools are now changing the way they talk to parents and opting for a dedicated teacher and parent communication app. Contact us today to find out more.
