Press Release: SchoolReach and Tyler Technologies Strengthen Mutual Commitment to Education Industry
St. Louis, MO – August 7, 2014 – SchoolReach, a leading school notification and alerts provider, and Tyler Technologies, the largest software company in the nation focused solely on providing integrated software and technology services to the public sector including the education market, have renewed their long-standing partnership which began in 2005.
Under the agreement, Tyler may promote and sell SchoolReach nationwide as a proven parent notification provider within their Tyler SIS solution.
“Since day one this has been a great partnership,” said Paul Langhorst, co-founder of SchoolReach. “Over the past nine years, we’ve seen school districts ask for more, better ways to communicate with their parent community, including text messages, email and voice broadcasts, and having a fully integrated solution within the Tyler student information system makes it easy for superintendents and school boards to choose the SchoolReach-Tyler solution. It’s a one-stop shop for them.”
The integration between Tyler’s SIS solution offering and SchoolReach is seamless. Parent contact data stored in the student information system is replicated into SchoolReach on a nightly basis so that when school administrators need to send an announcement either by text, email or voice broadcast, they are working with the most accurate and up-to-date information possible.
“We are a strong fit for each other,” said Nick Botonis, Tyler SIS president. “Our customers want to launch parent notifications at a moment’s notice and know that their message is going to be delivered, reliably. This is where SchoolReach’s patented technology and customer support really make a difference.”
SchoolReach is the K-12 division of St. Louis-based GroupCast, LLC, a broadcast communications provider used by thousands of schools across all 50 states. The backbone of SchoolReach is their patented school notification and alerts platform that enables administrators to communicate with an entire community within minutes, sending text, voice and email messages such as automated attendance alerts, school emergency alerts, low lunch balance notifications and bus route notifications.
