We are SchoolSmart
SchoolSmart offers schools a personalized and centralized mobile platform that provides a one-stop-shop for students to find information on school events, sports, news, and more. When schools purchase SchoolSmart, they are buying a complete platform to manage student activities and provide information. The product consists of two main parts–a mobile app that students can use, and an online dashboard for school administrators to use to manage the information displayed in the app. School leadership or ASB (Associated Student Body) would be responsible with how they would like to manage the data entry for various sections on the app. Different members of school leadership will be given login credentials to the dashboard, each with access to edit information that they are responsible for. For example, the school’s ASB Sports Commissioners would have the ability to upload and edit results from school sporting events.
Our product consists of two main parts–a mobile app that students can use, and an online dashboard for school administrators to use to manage the information displayed in the app. The app also comes with the ability to send push notifications to the entire student population, allowing for greater engagement.
Through the online dashboard, the school can enter in all their events and schedule information at once, and the app will automatically update itself day-to-day, minimizing the effort needed by the school to maintain it.
One major advantage of our product is that we completely customize the app to each school, allowing us to design the app to best suit the needs of their students. This also means that the app can plug into existing sources of school information, so information like news can be pulled from the school newspaper website, reducing the effort needed by the school to update the app. Each school can make the app truly their own, with their custom branding.
The mobile app will feature an intuitive layout, where students can view data corresponding to the app’s seven main features–announcements, bulletin, calendar, sports, news, video, ticketing, and voting. One of our product’s main advantages is that each school receives its own app, developed individually with their needs in mind. We custom-tailor each school’s app’s user interface and functions – implementing their existing systems into the app, such as online school news and sport tracking systems, so that not all information needs to be manually entered. Each app feels like the school’s own, designed with the school colors and iconography, and has its own listing on the app store.
The app’s advantage lies in its ability to present a single place for students to access information on events and bridges the communication gap between event organizers and students. From posting the ticket prices for Homecoming to sending a reminder before a football game starts, the SchoolSmart platform gives schools an easy way to keep their student body informed and engaged.
