Teachers and parents are both inevitable for the proper growth of a child as a student as well as a person. Parents should not sit back and depend solely on teachers for children’s education and personal development. Rather, there must be a healthy and frequent relation between the parents and teachers which enables the perfect evolution of a child.
Parent-teacher meetings offer an ideal platform for such interactions. But these are insufficient for the overall development of a child as they are not frequent enough.
Understanding the great importance of communication in education, we have developed a web communication portal. It serves as the best thing to encourage communication between teachers and parents.
Being part of the always connected World Wide Web, easy access to communication is one of the major advantages of the portal. Parents having a regular peek into children’s academics enhance their academic performance while also resulting in better classroom behavior.
The progress of your child can easily be tracked with the online portal. It is an all-round service that permits a quick overview of your child’s developments as a student as well as a person. If there are educational doubts, teachers can help parents with that, on the other hand the doubt in a student’s behavior can be discussed with their parents by the teacher.
Significant involvement of parents in the matters of children helps to develop the morale of teachers as well. Teachers get empowered and feel more responsible to students due to effective communication with the parents. The school curriculum activities can be followed even during tight work schedule of the parents. Communication centre is available in both mobile phones and web, making things simpler according to your convenience. Easy access to your child’s day to day activities with the review and suggestions of their teacher.

For better results and overall student improvement, depend on communication portal it allows the stable growth of productivity and operates effectively. Power is now in your hands through communication centre, use it to mould your child in to a better person.
One of the best parts of our school bus tracking software is the real-time or active notification facility. At a time when most parents would be busy with their jobs, the active notification feature keeps them updated about the various happenings in their child’s school life. When it comes to school bus tracking, real-time notifications provide an additional layer of safety and convenience.
For instance, a parent who regularly picks up his/her child from the bus stop may not be able to reach the stop in time due to an emergency meeting at office. With the help of active notification, which informs the parent when the child boards the school bus, he/she will be able to arrange another person to pick up the child.
There might also be situations when the child might get into the wrong bus or miss the bus altogether. Active notifications become quite helpful under such circumstances. No time gets wasted and the child can be tracked down in a short time.
As the student tracking system has a mobile application as well as a web interface, there are active notifications in both. In case a parent does not have access to a smartphone, he or she can get the notifications in the parent portal.
There are a number of instances when parents will get notifications. These include
In the morning,
- 10 minutes before the bus arrives at the designated stop
- Once the child boards the school bus or if the child doesn’t board
- In case the bus stops for an unusually long time at any point
- If the bus stops at a non-designated bus stop
- When the bus crosses the speed limit
- Once the child alight the school bus
Similarly, in the evening, the whole process takes place again.
Convenience is the day to day advantage of getting real-time notifications. The first notification of a day, when the school bus is 10 minutes away from the bus stop will make parents and children more alert. It will help avoid students missing their school buses.
But more than convenience, the more important advantage is the added safety. Children stranded at bus stops can be picked up without delay and it gets easier to track students down in case of unfortunate incidents such as kidnapping.
Industry Leading Hardware
Any good tracking system is made of equal parts software and hardware. The quality of both elements is vital to the final product, and we realize this. That’s why we use the best and latest GPS tracking device available.
Normal GPS tracking hardware would include two different components. One would include the tracking device which sends out the location signals to the satellite and another one for reading RFID tags. But, the hardware we use is a sleeker, more portable kit which takes up lesser space. It incorporates both the tracking hardware as well as the RFID reader in a single body.
The hardware we use provides numerous advantages to you.
- School Bus Attendance – Unlike normal GPS tracking systems which do not have an attendance function built-in, our system is able to provide attendance facilities to you.
- It enables us to provide notifications to parents when the child boards or alights the school bus.
- The device is physically strong and durable due the use of industry grade materials used in the casing, PCB and the components.
- The quality of GPS devices usually come under scrutiny due to quality issues. We neither use nor recommend china made devices as there are a couple of inconveniences. First is that the maintenance and installation processes are difficult due to the unavailability of local representation of such manufacturers. And the second point is that we like the components to be perfectly in sync with our system.
- Portable design means it’s not really difficult to transport the devices, unlike the GPS trackers of yesteryear. Moreover, the compact dimensions ensure the device occupies minimal space.
Our hardware is provided by the leading manufacturer of GPS tracking in India, Taximeter.in. Their devices are known for their accuracy and durability. Combined with the rest of our system, you get an exceptional product that ensures safety for children as well as efficiency for fleet management.
Easy Installation and Maintenance
As mentioned earlier, our tracking device is unique. Both RFID reader and GPS technologies are merged into one device. Being a single piece of hardware, it is relatively effortless to install this device in quick time.
The quality of hardware ensures there would be minimum maintenance required. And in case there are any issues, our experts are ready to provide any sort of assistance you might require. You would be able to know the status of repair once you login to the web portal.
