Frequently Asked Questions

Once my website and app are set up, will I be able to update them myself?

One of the best things about Parentapps websites and apps are how easy they are to update.  Our Connect platform and Parentapps website builder, enable schools and nurseries to update their own app and website without the need to pay a developer. And, with FREE training and support included in the price of both the app and website you can rest assured that we will be there to help if you have any questions.

Will I receive training?

All new customers will receive app and website training before we launch, but we are happy to provide as much additional training as you need. This might be useful for new staff, when new features are launched, or if you just need a refresh on a particular topic. We want our customers to feel empowered to use their app and website to the fullest.

Once I launch the app will I still need to continue with my SMS service provider?

No, you won’t need to continue to purchase SMS through another provider.  Parentapps Connect enables you to send messages to all parents, certain groups, or individuals. It also allows you to easily view which parents have and have not activated the app, as well as who has read messages.  Then, if you do have parents who don’t have the app, you can send them an SMS message or email directly from the platform.

Will the app and website be tailored to my organisation?

Yes, we provide bespoke apps and websites for schools and nurseries.  We will work with you to ensure that they reflect your organisation’s brand and fulfil all your needs. 

Are your apps and websites secure?

Yes, we use 2-step authentication, ensuring that only the right users get access to your school’s app. Also, all of our websites have SSL security to protect from hacking.
