Boost Attendance & Engagement

Use SMS not only to engage with parents, but staff & students

A small investment in SMS reminders can come a long way in helping you increase attendance to school events; it can also improve internal efficiencies when managing staff and kids, as well as tuition fees collection.

Manage absenteeism

Let parents know when their child has skipped school. Some schools prefer to do so every time the kid misses class, others do it after 3-5 occurrences.

Rosters & CRTs

If a teacher is sick, you can trigger last minute SMS alerts to your on-call Casual Relief Teachers to find an available replacement.

Event Management

A classic, from sending SMS reminders, to giving redeemable freebies or building your database.

Student deadlines & alerts

Some universities trigger online SMS campaigns 2 days prior to assignment deadlines to remind students of submissions. Also, when grades become available, they let them know so.

Emergency Alerts

Whether it’s a hazardous situation (fire, threat, flooding, etc) or something specific to the school (renovations) you can make sure everyone is onboard on time in full by sending them an SMS notification.

Tuition Reminders

An overdue invoice? Not a problem, you can send SMS reminders to have the invoice paid as soon as possible.
