Celebrating 750,000 downloads of the ParentMail App!

Posted by Jessica Brierley 6 months ago

750,000 parents now use our mobile App to receive school information – meaning more schools are saving money and more parents are getting instant information than ever before.

When parents download the mobile App, messages can be sent using in-app notifications meaning schools can in effect text parents for free, saving them money every year on text credits.

For parents, it means all their school messages are in one place and they can keep on top of their school needs more easily than ever before. It also means they receive messages, online forms or payment reminders instantly and can action them straight away all from their mobile phone.

September 2016 was our busiest month for App downloads with 130,000 parents downloading it onto their Android or iOS device. The surge in downloads shows how schools are getting behind promoting the benefits of the App to parents – and how parents are appreciating doing things like making payments or booking appointments from their mobile device.

Parents also gave the App lots of positive 5 star reviews on the App stores:

 “Just love this app. With 4 kids, this is a dream. All info in one place. Don’t need to fill out forms
and get back to school, just one click and it’s all done for you.”

“Easy to use and helpful to have access to all letters on your phone, instead of waiting for
lost letters from your child.”

“I cannot fault this App. It’s a great way to receive messages from school. The App is
easy to use and secure :-)”

“Love this App, so much easier than having to check emails. I don’t know how I managed without it”

“A reliable and easy method of communication for schools and saves paper, definitely recommended.”

“Brilliant App, so much easier to communicate with the school and being able to pay by
card is so convenient for busy parents.”

Unlike other mobile Apps available to schools, the ParentMail App is totally secure, does more than simply replicate school websites and is a crucial tool for improving parental engagement, reaching parents in a way that works for them.

We’re now looking forward to hitting the 1 million mark, which we’re hoping to reach early 2017! As well as the ParentMail App, we now offer schools their own School Branded App, complete with school logo and colours.
