"There has to be a better way!" - (the statement that launched our company)
The Pain Point...
As parents of 3 kids in 3 different schools, trying to find basic daily information like lunch menus, grades, & athletic schedules was very frustrating. We were going to websites, social media, emails, paper calendars, & even some clunky school apps (that just seemed to lead back to the websites and social media). Eventually, we found ourselves back to digging through backpacks to make sure we weren't missing important daily information ... and guess what? ... we were still missing things! All we wanted was that "one-stop-info-shop"!
The Eureka Moment...
As former educators and coaches, we knew that in today's world, there had to be a better way for schools to communicate. As parents, we observed that the one thing our kids (and adults) never seem to be without was our smartphones. So, if we have apps that get us our news, sports, shopping, food, calendars, video games, and just about everything else ... why don't we have a GREAT school app for our kids' academics and athletics?
So we got to work!
By partnering educators, parents, and software engineers, we proudly develop high quality academic and athletic apps that can be customized to fit the needs of K-12 schools, yet are easy enough for 1st graders and grandparents to use!
We constantly collect feedback from the folks who know it best - educators and parents! If there is one thing learned in education, it's that people make the difference ... GREAT PEOPLE + GREAT APPS = GREAT COMMUNICATION
What good is an app that isn't easy enough to use on a daily basis? The bottom line is quality apps are expensive to build and school districts have budgets. This is why we are constantly exploring creative funding opportunities to assist your schools and athletic departments. We offer a fantastic App Scholarship Program that many districts and athletic departments are already utilizing. Be sure to check out the link above for more information on how your school or district may qualify for a fully-funded mobile app!
Together, we can make a difference ... Connect. Inform. Simplify!
