Over the last 10 years we've built hundreds of school websites We recognise that we work with a time-poor and generally low-tech community but a community that has a growing appetite to become contemporary communicators. We have learned that whilst schools have embraced email, apps and Facebook there's frustration in the time consumed managing these disparate mediums that don't talk to each other. Combine this with a newsletter crafted in Word (or similar) and you can have up to 4 publishing mediums being managed by staff stretched for time. So we set about solving this.
You can manage all your communications in a sponsor-ed website.
Whatever you write in the website can, with a simple tick of a box, be pushed-out to email and a phone app (and soon Facebook). You can also craft your newsletter in the website too.
