Leading Australian education technology company ParentPaperwork is excited to be exhibiting at CommunicAsia 2017, the 28th International Communications and Information Technology Exhibition Conference in Singapore 23 to 25 May.

Every parent, teacher and administrator in every school in the world knows the pain of paper forms. Permission slips, lunch orders, surveys, consents, detention notices – K-12 schools, kinders and ELC’s use paper forms for hundreds of activities and tasks every year – the average school sends 30 or more paper forms home for each student in a year.

Paper forms are an enormous cost and labour drain for schools whose budgets are already stretched to breaking, plus a huge cost to the environment. Paper, copying, distribution, the endless inevitable chasing of non-returned forms and the collating and reporting of thousands upon thousands of pieces of information are all a waste of staff time and money.

ParentPaperwork is easily the most comprehensive, fully featured, administration data capture, management and reporting platform for K-12 schools, kinders and ELC’s in the world. ParentPaperwork replaces all the paper forms and moves them to a secure cloud-based online platform, with every form for every student available at the click of your mouse.

Hundreds of schools in eight countries now use ParentPaperwork to send online forms to their parents, and capture and report the responses – and see huge savings in time and money and improvements in liability management as a result.

The ParentPaperwork suite includes:

  • Broadcasts – One way messages and alerts to parents via SMS and Email
  • Parent Slips – Replace paper forms between existing parents and your school
  • Student Slips – Empower students within the administrative process
  • Absentee Slips – The new generation of student absentee notifications
  • Admin and Enrolment Slips – Free up your staff’s administrative time whilst better ensuring compliance

Recently ParentPaperwork announced the launch of its most important new feature in twelve months – sending online forms to Students. Sports registrations, subject electives selection, school council elections, student surveys; and prefect voting – all can now be handled via ParentPaperwork.

ParentPaperwork integrates with a wide range of other education technology products and is especially proud to partner with leading K-12 software company Schoolbox. The partnership sees ParentPaperwork fully integrated into the Schoolbox parent portal to provide one destination for all of a parent’s interaction with their school. The seamless integration between the two platforms enables parents to view and complete school forms and slips online.

ParentPaperwork’s CEO Ms Fiona Boyd says:

“Traditional paper-based processes are quite simply broken and no longer workable in today’s world, where accountability, risk management and statutory compliance are critical issues for school leaders globally. ParentPaperwork provides your school with a robust, secure system to replace all your paper forms.

ParentPaperwork integrates with a school’s existing software such as their student information database and learning management system to provide a seamless experience for parents.

With the launch of our new forms to Students functionality I can confidently say ParentPaperwork is easily the most comprehensive, fully featured administration data capture, management and reporting platform for K-12 schools in the world.

I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to discuss digitisation with schools in Singapore at CommunicAsia, with the Singapore Government recently embarking on a significant program to make public services more accessible and productive through better use of technology, such as through the digitisation of government records.”

ParentPaperwork will be exhibiting as part of the Victorian Government’s Trade Delegation to CommunicAsia at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore 23 – 25 May 2017.
