“It means a lot to me and my team to be recognized as innovators. Each year we invest a third of our revenue in Research and Development, and we consider that an investment in the school communities we support through our product.” — Sohit Wadhwa, ParentSquare CEO

ParentSquare Inc, a provider of unified school-home communications, won the award for “Best Re-invention of a Classic Legacy Technology” presented by Tech & Learning magazine. ParentSquare was one of five winners nationwide for the category and the only school communication platform to win this award.

From the often unanswered, landline-reliant all-call systems, to long-format newsletters that are already old by the time of publication, ParentSquare improves upon legacy technology by reaching parents where they are. Two-way communication technology with real-time translation empowers families to play an active role in their children’s education. By unifying all communication tools into one place, ParentSquare encourages districts, schools, and classrooms to communicate with a common voice, making it easier for parents to connect with all stakeholders in their children’s education.

“It means a lot to me and my team to be recognized as innovators,” said Sohit Wadhwa, ParentSquare CEO. “Each year we invest a third of our revenue in Research and Development, and we consider that an investment in the school communities we support through our product.”

ParentSquare’s most recent big feature releases include an Alexa skill, Secure Document Delivery and Auto Notices. In honor of their award and the new decade, ParentSquare has curated a list of favorite tech throwbacks, as well as new inventions in school communication.
