Sends Emergency Alerts from Anywhere During Bad Weather Conditions – Requires No Access to Electricity, Landline Phones or Internet Service

Great for Sending Parents Updated Arrival Time Notifications from Team or Field Trip Buses

October 17, 2011 – RenWeb School Management Software, the leading provider of Web-based student information systems, today announced the launch of its Parent Alert App for the iPhone and iPad. The Parent Alert App gives administrators the flexibility and convenience of sending emergency notifications from anywhere — even if they have no access to electricity, landline phones or internet service. Parent Alert delivers the notifications instantly to parents via text messages to cell phones; voice calls to work, home and cell; and emails to multiple addresses.

“Our new Parent Alert App demonstrates RenWeb’s continued commitment to offering member schools best-in-class service and technology. Given the extreme weather emergencies schools have experienced over the past few years, we wanted to make sure our customers had access to the best available tools for contacting their parents during emergencies when it matters most,” said Bob Wilbers, RenWeb Founder and President.

“We’ve also had many requests to provide coaches and school staff members the ability to send parents updated arrival time notifications from team buses and field trip outings so parents don’t waste time waiting in the parking lot,” continued Wilbers. “Parent Alert ensures that every member of the school community can stay informed in a reliable, convenient way.”
