Convincing app and team

Since the very beginning, I have been splendidly supported by the team behind the app. The benefits of using this tool are many: I can get in contact with parents straightaway and don’t have to wait for the kids to show me their parent-teacher communication log. Their parents can react immediately to my messages. Short-term changes for field trips and outings can now be announced. I can send pictures of our project week to all parents, so that they know their kids are doing well. It saves money by reducing paper consumption. This app is indispensable!

Always have emergency contact details ready

The student list gives you access to important information for each student. This also includes the emergency contact details of parents and other family members. By linking this information directly to the parents’ user profiles, it is always kept up-to-date. In case of an emergency, you no longer need to desperately look for the right phone number but have it right at your fingertips.

After your first login, all emergency contacts can also be used offline. This way you do not depend on an active Internet connection.
