As a Mother of two young boys, I was on the road frequently dropping/picking up the boys from various activities. Not always knowing the exact addresses of the activities and their start and end times, I often wished I had the contact information of other school parents on my mobile phone. Even after having purchased multiple print copies, they always went missing at home when I needed them the most.
To overcome this problem, I built a secure and private mobile school directory for my children’s school and surrounding schools. The mobile directory, a digital version of the school print directory, can readily be accessed on a mobile phone to easily connect with other parents in the community. The invaluable convenience for school parents and the time and money saved by the PTAs/PTOs, led to a rapid growth of MobileArq which grew quickly and had over 21,000 users in the first year of launch (2013). MobileArq hasn’t looked back.
