Schools currently spend £000’s per annum publishing prospectuses, newsletters, policies and reports, while text messaging can amount to £00’s. These documents and more can all be managed within the Edtap Solution.
With the Edtap Solution, schools can now take control of their own communications. The solution is designed to allow any school, without specialist expertise, to add, maintain and proactively deliver documents. The solution meets the objective of those who wish to delegate administrative responsibilities. Content can easily be uploaded from desktops, laptops, smartphones or tablets. Updates are automatically propagated.
Users can personalize their own app by selecting their preferred content. Schools can customize the entire interface using the administrative dashboard. This includes colours, type setting and icons as well as button priorities and general layout.
The publishing of documents and messages can be restricted to specifically approved staff, ensuring that all conforms to school policies. Administrative functions are password protected, with communications and data storage both encrypted.
Push Notification message technology allows for real-time delivery of messages to individuals and groups. This technology has no transaction cost and has a number of significant benefits relative to traditional texting, such as confirmation of delivery and of reading.
Information is delivered directly to the user’s mobile device without requiring private contact information. The solution does not require phone numbers or email addresses and hence avoids the significant administration effort that is often encountered to ensure that such phone numbers and email addresses are still current.
The apps are available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Information is sent instantly and reliably, remaining available when offline.
