Top 10 Benefits
Groupcall Messenger has been independently proven to reduce truancy by almost 30% in some authorities and by more than 50% in some individual schools.
Take a look at the Groupcall Messenger Truancy Infographic, here.
Groupcall Messenger reads information direct from the school's management system (MIS) and, by automatically sending messages, negates the need for staff to make potentially time-consuming calls manually.
The cost of sending voice or SMS messages sent to mobiles and landlines dramatically cuts down time spent on the phone and with it, the cost of calls, sometimes by hundreds of pounds a year. In addition to the cost savings with telephone bills, plenty of further costs can be saved by sending out electronic newsletters/letters, thus reducing the time and money spent on printing and postage.
Using our automated Google translation facility provides the ability to send text and email messages in up to 64 languages meaning all families, regardless of their mother tongue can be included in school communication, whether routine or emergency.
Groupcall Messenger enables schools to contact large groups of parents via text, voice, email and Twitter in a matter of seconds even when access to the school office is restricted. However, you also have the option to send messages at a scheduled time/date.
By alerting parents early to a child's absence and confirming if it is genuine, Groupcall Messenger can deliver valuable, often crucial time to authorities in helping to find a child, whether the absence is through truancy, runaway or even abduction.
Whether it's "the football match is cancelled" or "don't forget it's parents' evening tomorrow", Groupcall enables schools to contact large groups of parents quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.
Groupcall Messenger conforms to EU data protection requirements and is 100% web-based with a simple user interface so is very user friendly, working on any computer.
Schools are not required to make a long term commitment to the product and are encouraged to trial the system before confirming if they wish to go ahead.
Groupcall Messenger is quick, robust and low cost with no long-term commitment. No advance text block purchase is required.
