With parental engagement, Collges face the same challenges as others these days, needing to keep parents informed, in an age when many people now run their lives ‘online‘ with their phones.
As well as providing a convenient and efficient method of sharing all the exciting activities that happen in your Colleges, having your own dedicated app available to download, provides added value to parents. Mention your Custom college app on an Open Day and it helps parents perceive your colleges as progressive and embracing the latest technology.
Using an app means you can also rationalise the way you communicate with the parents. If they know your app is the ‘one-stop shop’ for everything that’s happening at colleges, it will mean administration time is cut and less calls to the college office.
As part of the enriched education Independent schools offer, parents will need to know the details of the many events and fixtures in the school calendar, just when they think of it, results in the children being better prepared for lessons, games or trips. You know who has access to the app at all times, which addresses any concerns you may have over safeguarding.
While we believe our app offers amazing functionality in its standard form, if there are any specific additional features you would like included, please get in touch. We’re always interested in discussing further development.
