A very successful Bett 2016 for Groupcall!

20th - 23rd January was this year's Bett Show; the biggest education technology exhibition in the world. Groupcall had a fantastic stand featuring the largest high resolution screen ever installed at a UK exhibition! We all had a brilliant time demoing our products, sharing the latest news and meeting a huge array of people from all over the world, including some of our customers. We started the show with our co-founder Bob Geldof and we also enjoyed sharing our stand with the charity Missing People and ambassador Fiona Phillips on Wednesday. Our partners in our brand new Messenger Ecosystem were there too; ParentPaperwork and Parents' Evening Booking System.
