Frequently Asked Questions
Also, what administrative controls or security measures do you have with the free system? With our Teacher Notification system, administrators can easily remove or restrict a teacher or former teacher’s access at anytime if the situation arises that this is needed. And, all notifications are stored and accessible by administrators at any time.
Last, any business that is funded by venture capital and seeking to build a massive user base with no current revenue model will eventually change. When that occurs, your school or district may end up having to pay to continue using a service you’ve become reliant on or your data may be sold or used in an advertising model. Our business model is very transparent and designed to serve our school and district partners for many years to come. We do not sell or provide any non-public data to advertisers.
Check the user ratings and make sure the service you are considering is the quality that you would like to represent your district. Our apps average 4.9 out of 5 stars in the app store ratings, meaning that users find our apps to work well and provide real value.
Look at other school or district apps published by the “free” or cheaper provider. Are they really apps or just a collection of web links packaged within an app? Our apps provide real, native features which is what makes an app different from a website.
“Free” services tend to only be available through a “portal” app where your district’s info is combined with many other districts. Our district apps are true independent apps branded to your district meaning that you will have an independent listing in the app stores and an icon with your district’s logo giving your stakeholders a true branded experience.
Consider the hidden costs of your administrators and staff’s time. “Free” services do not offer the service we provide in managing content and updates.
Who is the “free” providers true customer? Any business model whose primary source of revenue is advertising is beholden to advertisers, not end users. Our sponsorship program can be a great way to offset the costs for your school or district, but you are our customer. We will always make sure our apps serve the best interest of our school and district partners and their stakeholders, not advertisers.
