Why is it not too late to do the school directory app in Winter?

Every PTA/PTO/HSA loves to compile a school directory at the beginning of the school year in August/September. To get a directory published by the end of September, you need to collect the permission from parents and their updated contact info to be published in the directory during the summer months. This includes finding volunteers willing to chase the parents and organize the information. With all these requirements, the directory usually does not get done in time for distribution to the parents in September. For some schools, the directory is simply not produced even by December. Or you could have the parents simply update their information in an online directory. With, this problem in mind, MobileArq helps out the PTAs and PTOs with the preparation of the online and mobile school directories.

I talk to school parents every day about our mobile school directory app. One of the questions asked is – how does a mobile app compare to an electronic PDF available over the web containing a list of parent contacts. I have compiled a table with the list of comparable features. Our mobile school directory app, MobileArq, is available on smartphones, iPads or any tablet device, computers (laptops and desktops). PDF Directory Mobile School Directory App Hard to view on a smartphone. Built for usage on a smartphone, tablet or computer with the same URL Not interactive Interactive‚ call/email/text from app Personal info cannot be updated/published by the user. Personal info can be updated and published immediately by the user or directory volunteer. No Group Communications Send message in a single click to members of any group.
