Celebrating 1 Million App Downloads!

Over 1 million parents across the UK are loving the convenience of ParentMail’s mobile App, using it to pick up school communications, make payments, book parents evening appointments and more – all via their mobile phones.

Launched just two years ago, and now also available in school branded format, ParentMail’s App has gone from strength-to-strength. For busy parents, it means they can quickly and conveniently respond to school requests, whilst schools notice a better and faster response than ever before.

Hundreds of schools now have their own ‘school branded’ version of ParentMail’s App in the App Stores, extending their school image and identity into the hands of their parents. ParentMail CEO, Paul Hughes says, “We’re extremely proud of the App and thrilled that so many schools and parents find it useful for improving school-home communications. We know that when parents are engaged, students do better, and that’s why we’ve put so much resource into developing our mobile app.”

When parents download the App schools save money as in-app notifications can be sent for free instead of text messages. Schools also spend considerable time checking and updating parent email addresses and mobile numbers but when parents use the App, if mobile numbers or email addresses are changed the App keeps parents connected.

Here’s what parents say about ParentMail’s App:

“Less children getting told off for forgetting important messages from school, less clutter on the fridge and easy dinner money top up…this app is every parents dream!” – N Phillips

“I’m a total ParentMail fan and wonder how we ever communicated without it!” – K Lane

“Sometimes it can be challenging to juggle school, work, other children, house work and commitments and know what is going on and keep in tune with the latest news and events at school. This app is a godsend!” – L Mathieu

“This app maintains a great line of communication between school and home which is essential in today’s ever moving and changing society.” – R Boulton
