Advanced Messenger Capabilities
Messenger is a cloud-based online system that allows schools to send personalised SMS (text), voice, and email messages, tweets (via Twitter) and push messages in real-time to parents, staff, students, or other contacts in a variety of languages for a low annual subscription fee.
“Teaching staff used to make phone calls to students.
They now have their time freed up to teach!”
St John’s Primary School
This complete suite of communications enables schools to feel at ease when contacting parents, enabling them to use the right channel at the right time, for the right message.
The System at Use
The system has been proven to increase attendance and reduce unauthorised absence, providing an early alert if a child fails to arrive at school. It also provides easy to use group contacting (from school clubs, through to lunch choices and school trips),
via an intuitive interface called Tiles.
“The improvement in parent-teacher relationships is hugely evident and
it seems to have boosted a real sense of community spirit within the
school, so, needless to say, we are extremely impressed with Messenger.”
Flakefleet Primary School
Messenger saves administration time, cuts telephone bills, paper usage and drastically improves communication and engagement between schools and parents in a format that parents are engaged with.
Intuitive Two-Way Communication
Parents have the ability to respond to SMS texts, voice messages, emails and push messages (via the Xpressions app) that are sent from the school. Parents receiving text communications from the school can reply in the same way that they would do with a normal text message. Parents responding to voice calls can either speak directly to or leave a message for the school. Push messages are sent via Groupcall’s Xpressions app and parents can respond for free using the app. Incoming text messages and push message replies automatically appear in the Messenger system.
