Tiqbiz and CareMonkey working together

CareMonkey is dedicated to ensuring schools, clubs and businesses are equipped to meet their duty of care requirements and giving carers access to the right information at the right time, regardless of where they are.

For this reason, CareMonkey is excited to announce our new technology partnership with Tiqbiz.  A fantastic app for parent communication for schools and clubs.

Tiqbiz is flexible and can be used to replace instant messages, send updates, newsletters, events, photos, videos and more. All posts are sent with a push notification. 

As we start to integrate our two systems, access to CareMonkey information will sit neatly within the Tiqbiz App (see screen shot)

To find out more about Tiqbiz visit their website or to click here to submit a CareMonkey enquiry.  We look forward to hearing from you.

School Administrator Survey Results

Thanks to many of our school administrators who recently provided feedback via a survey asking them what they think about our system, and where it can be improved.

Overwhelmingly our school administrators are enjoying the time saving and benefits that CareMonkey provides.  

What school administrators are saying...
"I like how the responsibility falls back on the parents to keep their contact details up to date as well as any medical issues for their children"

"The saving of that very important commodity...TIME!"

"I like that is is very quick to organise an excursion"

"I like the fact that MOST parents will now reply with permission quickly and paper free...better than permission slips of the past"
There is also room for improvement, so we are working closely with our school customers to make incremental enhancements to our system, with the ultimate goal of making administrators lives easier.

To organise a demonstration for your school or club or to simply find out more contact us today.

Customer Profile: St Josephs Primary, Elsternwick

St Joseph’s is a small Catholic Primary School in Elsternwick Victoria. 
As one of our foundation customers since November 2013, St Joseph’s has helped shape the CareMonkey system we provide today, and will continue to help us guide and improve this system for future applications. 

Modules used: 
  • emergency contacts and student care profiles
  • communications tools including email and sms
  • online permissions forms
  • excursions
We spoke with Principal, Simon Collis about the system. 
1.    What do and your team like most about the system?
Emailing and Permission Slips
2.    What has been the biggest benefit in using CareMonkey? 
Timesaving, parent control, reduced paperwork, convenience, permission slips.
Quick identification of student profile concerns.
Admin staff really embraced this program. This was made easier with the in-house PD visit.
3.    Do your teachers use the CareMonkey App and have they found it helpful, particularly when on excursions?
Our teachers are okay with the app.  We simply need to change a habit
4.    How has it been received by the parent group? 
Parents love it! They simply respond within 24 hours rather than admin staff chasing up forms. It is being very well received, but we did a particularly good sell via newsletters and other communications.
Thanks St Josephs!  We are thrilled to you on board and encourage you to keep providing feedback and insights that help us improve the system.
