Places you may have seen EdUnity
Using a School App is an effective way to improve school communication. Forget the days of unseen emails, expensive SMS or lost letters by reaching parents on the devices they use most. EdUnity comes equipped with a suite of free communication and messaging features as standard.
Nowadays communication can be a frustrating part of school administration. Parents are inundated with emails and text messages making it hard for messages to be seen, whilst social media is often ignored. An app can help tackle this with a dedicated platform for parental-engagement.
If asking parents to check your school website, social media, parent portal and email sounds like a familiar story - we could save you a lot of time and money. An app is a great way to pull everything into one place from electronic forms, to messages, news or even the latest school-trip photos!
Increase long-term parent satisfaction with your school by taking a proactive stance when it comes to communication. EdUnity helps you to engage parents effectively, whilst still conveying importance messages and providing a reliable communications service.
School communication can be a significant source of financial waste in schools. Simply updating communication systems can reduce financial strain on school budgets. As we use the latest technology, schools can replace the need for SMS, Email, Gateway Apps or Parent Portals by having one app that meets a wide range of school needs.
In an industry first, EdUnity offers a savings guarantee. This means if your school doesn't save money by switching to EdUnity - we will match the cost difference.
It really depends on your school. We can save schools up to 60% on their communication and admin cost. Why not try our Savings Calculator see how much your school could save?
Unlike SMS, Apps are not reliant on any telecom services to function, and this means we don't have the same costs that SMS providers do. Ultimately, we pass these savings onto schools which is why apps work out a lot cheaper.
Sadly, technology gets a bad rapport when it comes to Privacy - and well, it isn't all entirely unfounded.
There are big education companies too, whose approaches to privacy have been put under the spotlight. At EdUnity, we believe privacy is a fundamental human right, which is why we work hard to create a safe digital experience for the whole school community.
Unlike other companies, EdUnity prioritise your school's digital security keeping your School's App a safe place for parents and students alike.
All our Apps come shipped with encryption and the latest app security standards, as you might find in your online banking as standard. It is these measures that protect against hacking, cyber-attacks and malicious scams.
We also give you complete control over your school's data, whilst individual users can manage their privacy settings taking care of your school's obligations under the Data Protection Act and GDPR automatically.

Built-in communication tools can cut down your parent messaging costs.
We all want an app that does it all. Among our standard features we offer Notifications, Inboxes and Emergency Broadcasting that meet day to day communication needs. You can also connect with 3rd Party Email and SMS tools if you choose to use these too.
Impress parents and keep your school identity front and centre.
There is something about parent apps that feel a little impersonal and out of touch. Your app's design is fully customisable from logos, to colours and layout. It's time to impress parents, current and prospective - as a school that creates a brand parents love.
Integrate with your favourite school services for one app that does it all.
It seems like there is an app for just about everything, but imagine an app that does "everything". You can now connect your favourite school-services from Podcasts to Calendars and keep it centrally in your School's App. No need for different accounts or apps.
Encrypted as standard, and built to be a safe place for parents and students.
We pride ourselves on putting Security first. We know just how important a safe space is to your pupils, parents and teachers. It is why we ensure every app is fully encrypted, offer multiple sign up configurations and let you take full control of your data.
New features every month, built on the feedback of schools like yours.
EdUnity is a company that listens! 90% of our product development is informed by feedback and suggestions from our clients. In our early days, over 100 teachers had input in our platform too. We are proud to be school-centric and release new features every month!
Yes! With every App Subscription, we include free and unlimited communications. This means you can send as many Notifications, Inbox Messages and Instant Messages as you need.
We offer dedicated support with all subscription plans, this includes Live Chat assistance within the School App manager as well as email and telephone support. There is also built-in On-Screen Guidance and our team has the ability to Screen Share remotely within our platform to quickly help resolve any queries.
When we say School App, every app is unique - it is your School's very own app, and this means there is an endless number of ways to customise it and tailor it to your School. Other providers offer things like a 'Parent App' that can be downloaded and used in limited ways - but beware! This is not a School App. If you have a question about this or specific questions, we would encourage you to speak to a Solutions Advisor who can help.
We release new features and improvements every month. Once more, it's our schools who decide what we release. Clients can vote on new functionality and features, so over time, your app will keep getting smarter and better!
That's up to you! It can be within just a couple of weeks by the time all changes and iterations are finished. We advise schools to get in early, busy periods around April and the Summer Holidays can mean higher demand and may slightly increase waiting times.
We offer a range of subscription plans dependent on your school size. These start at £80 per month up to £250 per month for large schools. We do not charge any set-up fees or usage quotas. For more advanced configurations, such as for a University or Multi-Academy Trust we advise speaking to one of our Solutions Advisors who will be able to assist further.

The marketplace is EdUnity's App Store. It is a place you can go to discover more features, apps and services that plugin and connect with your School App. Thanks to Marketplace, your app can get smarter over time, so as we add more third-parties and apps, you will have even more services that you can connect.
Yes! Clients will often tell us about specific situations and see if we can help. It could be something like adding School Bus Tracking or integrating with a specific platform. If you have a need outside of our core features, it's certainly worth asking!
