SAN DIEGO, CA AND PROVO, UT (PRWEB) OCTOBER 30, 2014
Peachjar and ParentLink today announced a partnership to provide K-12 school districts with improved information communication services. By joining forces, the two companies have created a high level of service and product integration, giving districts who use their respective products distinct advantages. Districts who use Peachjar will now have the ability to use their mobile apps, powered by ParentLink, to provide a more streamlined experience for distributing eflyers to parents.
Mobile apps from ParentLink are designed to be the all-in-one platform where parents can access all school information. Hundreds of districts use these mobile apps, making them the best way for educators to distribute eflyers through Peachjar.
“It’s going to make a lot of communication directors extremely happy to have Peachjar integrated into their apps,” said Bruce Hassler, Chief Technology Officer at ParentLink. “Peachjar is a great solution to a challenge nearly every school district communication department faces, and we are happy to make the experience even better.”
The two companies share a common passion to improve the way schools share information with families, and often work with the same personnel at each district. The services are complimentary and school districts can expect this partnership to yield simplified setup and better technical support.
“We are trying to make the best mobile experience for parents, and ParentLink is very innovative in that space,” noted Mike Durham, Founder and CEO of Peachjar. “We are excited about this partnership because as the most widely used district app provider, ParentLink helps us extend our reach to more families, in the way they prefer. And this is just the beginning.”
