Apps are one of the most powerful communication mediums available to schools right now. There is nothing that can communicate instantly with your community like an App can do and this alone enables you to manage your communication strategy much more efficiently. Apps are accessible anywhere on the go and allow parents and students to find the information they require quickly.
A school can easily send a push notification to anyone that has the app downloaded. This could be a simple text message, a picture or even a link to a video or website page. A push notification can be used to notify parents of any last minute changes, emergencies upcoming events or more. You can let students in any year group know their bus has been delayed. Push notifications can be set up into groups classes or however you want. The notification simply pops up on the users screen and research show they have a 95% or greater read rate.
We don’t waste your money on project management hours. We have designed an app that has the features the majority of schools need. We simply plug in what you need and spend most of our time creating beautiful layouts and functionality. Using this method means any school can afford the latest and BEST technology available. You won’t find a better featured app anywhere for the price – Guaranteed!
Your monthly fee includes hosting in the Apple store, all Android platforms and on our servers.Also included are any relevant upgrades (we have new features constantly being developed) training and support if you require assistance.
There are no hidden fees. However technology is changing at a lightening pace and as we develop new features to match it may be necessary to update platforms in the app stores. There may be some small fees charged for doing this. These upgrades would be optional and your app would continue to operate without them.
A premium app includes mobile food ordering for your school tuckshop and or in app shopping for uniforms or event tickets. These take longer to create and usually require more support with changes. You can also have multiple sliding images on your home screen.
No, not at all. We provide you with access and training to change as many features and content, as you want. Or you can just take one of our management plans and we will take care of everything for you including image changes, content updates, push notifications, and event updates.

All our apps include publication to both the Apple and Google Play store. Apps are free to download and can be found simply by searching in the store. We also provide you with a QR code that can be easily scanned to take you directly to the app for download. This can be used on any print material or available in throughout the school to make it even easier. Apps feature a share button and parents quickly adopt the new technology
Apps are exploding right now! Mobile technology is the fastest adopted technology in history. Having an app from your school is an essential element in providing connections and access parents and students are demanding.
We will send you a live demo within a few days. Once you have approved the design or your changes have been made we are ready to publish to the marketplace. Android apps go live within 24 hours, Apple apps go through a strict publishing criteria and can take up to 14 days.

Update shopping carts and canteen stores
Scheduled push notifications. (urgent notices should still be sent directly from the school)
