Truancy Call now writes back to Progresso MIS

Posted on 13 March 2018 in All news

Does your school use Progresso?  Then here’s some good news!

Truancy Call – our flagship attendance monitoring platform now writes back to Progresso Management Information System.  Truancy Call will send automatic text messages and/or calls to chase the whereabouts of an absent or late child, and when the parent replies via the system this automatically comes back into Truancy Call which then allows you to write the mark back into your Progresso database.

By dynamically integrating with your Management Information System, Truancy Call can pull the data for all absent and late pupils, and will send an automated phone call, text message or email to parents. It also allows parents to respond by the same manner. Repeated calls are delivered until a response is provided, eliciting a high number of parental responses.

Features of Truancy Call:

  • Reduce Unauthorised Absences
    Truancy Call is proven to reduce unauthorised absences in schools.
  • Gain Greater Parental Responses
    Over a third of parental responses are received by Truancy Call out of school hours.
  • Save Costs
    Save money on telephone call costs through quick calls or texts to parents – rather than personal calling which can be more lengthy and costly
  • Time-Saving
    Free up valuable support staff time by having Truancy Call do first day contact on behalf of your school
  • Parents with no Mobile Credit?
    Parents are not charged for responding to calls from Truancy Call – ideal for contacting those that are hard to reach.
  • Flexibility to Suit You
    With data drawn from your MIS, immediately see who is absent or late. Filter the data further and remove parents who don’t need messages.


If absence rates are creeping up in your school and becoming an issue – nip it in the bud now, and manage the process with Truancy Callyou’ll be impressed with the results.
