St. Louis, MO – Thanks to nominations from school administrators and tech directors across the country, the SchoolReach school notification platform has been named to District Administration Magazine’s Top 100 Products list for a second straight year.

The renowned industry journal said that nominations for its annual awards program almost doubled year over year to reach a total of more than 1,800. The District Administration editorial board took both the quantity and quality of nominations into account to name its final list of 100 winners.

“The fact that we were once again named to the Top 100 list despite the increased competition for this coveted honor speaks to the high satisfaction of our school administrator users,” said Joe Palacios, CEO and co-founder of SchoolReach. “School leaders from coast to coast trust us to handle their most important parent communications, and we’ve earned that trust by providing a superior product and industry-leading customer service.”

SchoolReach is a leader in the school notification industry, with more than 11 years of experience in the field and thousands of schools in every U.S. state as clients. The SchoolReach platform provides schools with the ability to send voice, text, e-mail, and social media notifications to parents on any issue – school closing notices, low lunch balance notifications, bus route notifications, automated attendance calls, and more. In 2012, the organization passed the half-billion mark for total voice, e-mail, and text messages sent.

SchoolReach’s multiple patents and commitment to technological innovation ensure that its users have the most technically reliable notification solution on the market. Continued innovations such as SchoolReach’s mobile apps for administrators and parents and its proprietary Number Tracker™ application have kept the platform at the forefront of the industry. And SchoolReach’s U.S.-based customer service team is available for help via phone day or night, 24 x 7 x 365, with an 8-second average-speed-to-answer time and a 98% first call resolution rate.

“With wins in both the Tech & Learning Magazine Awards of Excellence program and the District Administration Top 100 Products program, 2013 has become another banner year for SchoolReach,” said Mr. Palacios. “We’re proud of our accomplishments this year, and we look forward to continuing our work with school leaders in 2014.”
