MacroSolve, Inc. issued a press release today to announce that they have launched a mobile app to serve the needs of public schools. Edison Preparatory School in Tulsa, Oklahoma is believed to be the first public school in the United States to now have its own branded mobile application. MacroSolve, an industry leader for providing mobile business applications, developed the app and it is distributed by Waller and Company Public Relations of Tulsa.
The application will initially be available through the iPhone app store on May 4th with access through other mobile device, such as the Blackberry, being slowly phased in over the next couple months. Waller and Company believe that this is just the beginning for the school application. Barrett Waller, president and CEO of Waller & Company Public Relations, was quoted in the press release as stating, “We believe we can support a national roll-out of this school app.”
The application was created to allow Edison to communicate with students, parents and the local community. Through the mobile app, all people associated with Edison will be able to receive real-time information regarding all the school’s activities including extracurricular events, school schedules, and all other important school announcements or activities. By fully using the capacities of this mobile app, Edison will be able to operate more efficiently and strengthen communications between the school and community.
Edison Principal Stacey Vernon commented “This is a wonderful tool that addresses the way we communicate today. It enables us to make real-time announcements that we can broadcast immediately. It is much more cost effective than traditional communications channels. We will reduce the use of paper and create an environment in which our very tech-savvy students can also participate in the creation and upkeep of content.”
