Hampden, MA (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
Rediker Software, a leader in school administrative software, has announced the release of Administrator’s Plus (AP) Mobile Apps for iOS and Android. Complementing the company’s student information system, Administrator's Plus, AP Mobile Apps give users access to student data including demographics, contacts, reports cards, scheduling and discipline.
“We understand administrators and school staff are often away from their desk and need access to student data while on the go, whether they are in the hallways, schoolyard, and cafeteria, on a field trip, at a conference or at home. AP Mobile Apps give them access to student and staff data anytime, anywhere, from their favorite mobile device,” said Rediker Software CEO Rich Rediker.
AP Mobile Apps treat a school’s students and staff like a separate contact list on a smartphone. School staff with permission rights can scroll through the names and pictures of all students at their school and view each student’s demographics, contacts, report cards, schedule of classes and discipline record. Staff can also enter discipline incidents and attach photos taken with the phone to the incident. Furthermore, staff can call, text or email a student or any of their contacts directly within the app.
“AP Mobile Apps ensure that school personnel are able to reach emergency contacts for students as quickly as possible without having to return to their desk. The app is truly ideal for field trip staff, hall monitors, coaches, security guards, and administrators that need access on the go,” Rediker noted.
The Administrator’s Plus Mobile Apps Manager gives schools the ability to set up secure user logins and control user permission rights for the app. For instance, a principal may be given rights to all student information while a chaperone may only be given rights to demographics so he/she can access food allergies and emergency contact information. In the event that a device is lost or stolen, the manager allows schools to remotely erase data from that device, thus ensuring student information is never at risk of being compromised.
“We have worked very hard to bring Administrator’s Plus onto mobile devices effectively and securely,” said Project Manager Andrew Anderlonis. “The Administrator’s Plus Mobile Apps deliver key information about students, even in multiple schools, and give school personnel the ability to easily enter information, such as discipline incidents. We are very excited about the app and look forward to adding even more functionality in the near future, including teacher access and the ability to take attendance.”
“I am excited about the potential and flexibility this mobile product possesses for our school,” said Rediker Software customer Peter Lucia of Georgetown Middle-High School in Georgetown, MA. “Having pictures readily available of the occupants of our building is particularly useful with regard to our safety and emergency protocols. The possibilities are endless.”
