We are a small company, requiring the development of a "School Communicator" School Communicator is a lightweight application that runs on every parent's computer. Information is automatically updated every time the school adds new content, even when the Communicator is not currently running. The Communicator launches every morning, so parents see your school news at least once a day. The school can add or edit content (including photos) using a simple web-based control panel.
Once installed information is automatically sent directly to each parent's computer. All they need to do is select which information they would like to receive by selecting the grade(s) and activities in which their children are involved. (They can change these settings at any time.)
The Communicator includes all the information parents really need to know. News, calendar events, a photo gallery, timetables, contact list & links to useful resources. There are also critical alerts for news that just can't wait.
Parents only receive news that is directly relevant. They select the grades they have children in and receive only content for those grades. Of course, content can be tagged for more than one grade – and news that is relevant to all parents can be sent to all grades.
Require: GUI, Platform Independant.
