Why the Summer Term Is the Ideal Time to Demo Our Products

Posted on 06 July 2016 in All news

With the summer term about to come to an end, there is no time like the present for schools to review their class communication and data services. Whilst the start of the autumn term seems a long way away, the time will soon come around so it’s essential to make sure all new communication systems are in place and running effectively long before the start of September.

Contact Group offer a complete portfolio of school communication products, from messaging systems that enable schools to contact parents quickly and easily, to truancy and absence monitoring systems, as well as personalised apps for parents. We would advise that schools request information on our products now to determine whether they provide the right solution for their requirements, in time for the new school year.

Our range of solutions are also designed to integrate seamlessly with all leading school management information systems. This allows schools to send messages to parents, take the register and even monitor student attainment at no more than the touch of a button. As a result, schools can stand to considerably reduce administrative times, as well as costs. By seeking information on our range of products now, schools can grow familiar with the available features and learn how our solutions link with and run smoothly alongside their existing Management Information Systems.

CallParents is a popular messaging system that allows schools to send messages to parents very quickly via email or text with just a few clicks. As a result, it can help to save considerable time, effort and money. OurSchoolsApp is a free, personalised app for parents that allows them to stay up to date with all important school information, events and news.

Our partner product Reggie allows teachers to take the student register anytime and anywhere. This is ideal for teachers that are on the move, or away from their PC as it still communicates directly with the school’s management information systems.

During the summer holidays, we can implement all new communication products to have them fully in place for the new school term in September. This provides plenty of time for schools to address any teething problems and train staff to use any new products, particularly as the start of the school year is always an extremely busy time, with the intake of new pupils and new staff, and the administrative work that is involved.

If feel that your school’s methods of class communication could be improved, you can call Contact Group today on 03333 131415, or alternatively, you can fill in our online enquiry form to arrange to view a demo.
