Have you ever sent out a message to parents and wondered if they received it?

Whether you send home a printed note, email or social media post, the deliverability rate is more often than not, very low.

For example, Mailchimp, an industry-leading email marketing service used by many schools and early education centres report a 22% email open rate in the education industry and a very low 2.63% click rate. That’s less than a quarter of your parents receiving your message, and a mere handful actually making the effort to read it.

This isn’t ideal if you want to get your message heard. And what happens a few hours after you’ve sent that email or posted that social media post? It gets forgotten as other emails and posts flood into the parents’ inbox or newsfeed. In comparison, with mobile apps read rates are between 90-98%.

These are just some of the reasons why schools are rapidly turning to a dedicated platform to ensure their message is received. Not only will parents receive a direct message on the home screen of their smartphone, but all the information is neatly organised into streams controlled by the school.
