When your school has to close at short notice, or an activity or sporting fixture is cancelled do you have a quick and easy way of letting your parents know?
If you are using SMS/Text messaging you might be incurring huge costs unnecessarily. With SchoolsBuddy’s emergency communications for schools, our notifications are pushed to parent’s mobile phones via our Android and iOS apps, meaning SMS text messaging can be kept to a minimum or even eliminated completely*.
With SchoolsBuddy you can…
Quickly send a communication to the parents who need the information, from the whole school down or just the parents of the chess club students
Communicate directly from a mobile device, for example if on a trip or at a sports fixture
Automatically sends an email, but also a push notification to the parent’s mobile device* (free to send)
SMS messages can also be sent if required
Integrating with your MIS/SIS and linking seamlessly with SchoolsBuddy’s other modules including our Activities Management solution, our communications module is the perfect fit for most schools, we are particularly loved by International Schools with large activities programmes.
*Requires parents to download the iOS or Android app
“Moving from a previously convoluted system to SchoolsBuddy was a breath of fresh air for everyone involved. The support was excellent at the time of pressing the Magic Button and the feedback from parents and staff has been equally positive. From a Safeguarding perspective, this ticks numerous boxes and now to have the confidence in a system that updates seamlessly with our MIS, updates parents & staff immediately of any changes, and keeps everything in one place coherently is a real game-changer administratively too.”
