March 1, 2011Harris Launches the EZSchoolMsg.com Emergency Notification Solution
Harris School Solutions is pleased to announce the launch of EZSchoolMsg.com, an automated emergency notification solution now available as a part of the Go.edustar student information system.
EZSchoolMsg.com permits users to send unlimited voice, SMS (text), and e-mail messages directly from Go.edustar. The application allows parents and staff to receive prompt notifications regarding school and event cancellations, truancy notifications, emergency alerts, early dismissals, etc. In times of extreme weather, schools can promptly communicate weather cancellations and delayed school start times through EZSchoolMsg.com.
"Whether the delivery method be via email, telephone or text message, parents today expect to be informed as quickly as possible about their child's welfare, performance or school activities," stated Jerry Canada, general manager of Harris School Solutions. "A robust solution such as EZSchoolMsg.com, particularly when integrated with one of our student information systems, is ideally suited to address all of the above needs."
Designed by educators, Go.edustar is a scalable, fully web-based student information system for small to medium-sized school districts. It features a flexible grade book, standards-based reporting and is compatible with any browser. The EZSchoolMsg.com solution seamlessly integrates into Go.edustar, eliminating the synchronization of contact information that is common-place with stand-alone messaging systems. It requires no additional hardware or software and is accessible via an easy-to-use online interface now available in Go.edustar.
The integrated emergency notification features available with EZSchoolMsg.com deliver the functionality school districts have previously sought from third parties. "A flexible, automated outbound messaging platform is an important piece of technology infrastructure for schools of all sizes," said Canada.
The full line of Harris School Solutions software provides numerous options for student information, school nutrition, school business, employee time and attendance, adult-vocational education, data backup/recovery and transportation management. View the Harris product line at:
