SchoolTrayTM comes with iPhone & Android Apps

In order to provide instant parent-school-student connectivity we developed iPhone and Android Apps. Use these for instant messaging, user-specific task asignment and news posting. Parents can download these apps for free and sign up using the same user id / password they used for the main school website.

 
SchoolTrayTM is multilingual / multinational

You can create pages in different languages and group them under main-menus and tabs with our standard mono-lingual package. Multilingual/multinational package goes one step further and lets you create a completely separate website for each language and country under a single-domain/single-setup. The users will be able to switch languages by clciking on language selection icons or buttons. Next time when they access the website they will automatically be presented with their choice of language.

 
SchoolTrayTM is secure

You have total control over the level of security. You can create pages for the general public or only certain users or user-groups. This means teachers, classes, pupils, parents and outside visitors to your site will only be able to see what you want them to see, maintaining your privacy and integrity throughout.

 
SchoolTrayTM is powerful

SchoolTray has been built to serve any size of organisation, from the smallest nursery to the largest educational institution. Its superior software allows the website to expand with your growing needs. The structure of the website can be modified and features can be added or removed at any time. The website is search engine optimised (SEO) so people can find you, and has been fine-tuned for optimum performance to make it quicker to use.
