Groupcall Messenger provides an easy-to-use solution for parental communications.
The system gives schools the ability to send messages via text (SMS), email, voice and Twitter to the mobile phones and landlines of parents, staff and key contacts in multiple languages.
Messenger is installed in over 5,000 primary and secondary schools in the UK delivering in excess of 40 million messages every year with 4 million emails and 800,000 voice calls.
Schools are not required to make a long term commitment to Messenger and are encouraged to trial the system free of charge before subscribing. Messenger has been independently proven to reduce unauthorised absence, increase attendance and improve parental communication whilst dramatically reducing costs and improving administration efficiency.
