"Works Great!"

Comments: Peace of mind. We now know exactly where our students are. Communication is better, and interrupting the classroom with change of dismissal for individual students is a thing of the past.

Pros: The software does exactly what it says it will. I can use this software with confidence that everything will just work. Notifications are huge for us! Parents are now consistently kept in the loop.

Cons: I wish the parents could have a web portal as well instead of forcing them to use an app. Also, you need to make sure you have good wifi outside for checking parents in. Once that is done, you are all set!

Hey there Aaron,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review PikMyKid. We greatly appreciate it. Thank you for pointing out that "The software does exactly what it says it will". We work hard to stay loyal and true to all that we market to consumers.

In regards to parents having a dashboard, we will discuss and work it into our next survey of improvements with our schools. And yes, good wifi is a must. Which we can now help with depending on the school's wifi structure.

"Peace of mind" is what we strive for.

Thank you, Aaron,

The PikMyKid team

"We've been using PikMyKid for two years now. It has reduced our dismissal time."

Pros: The customer service and support are amazing. They respond quickly and are extremely helpful in fixing any problems/issues we have. It is user friendly for administrators. It does reduce our dismissal time. When used correctly by parents, it can help ensure their child's safety.

Cons: Unless everyone uses the system properly, it's not 100% effective. Every single parent has to use the application and use it properly otherwise there are problems at dismissal. Because of this, it never works perfectly. One big problem for our school, that really needs to be fixed, is that even if parents delegate their children, if the parent goes through car line and announces, their child will be announced even though they have been delegated to someone else. This is a problem for parents who delegate one child, but pick up another child themselves. If they go through the car line before the delegated person does, then both children, even the delegated child, will be announced. This is a huge problem for our school. Also, on the dashboard for admins, it would be nice to be able to sort the list of students by the columns available. If we could sort that list alphabetically by last name, it would be very helpful.

"PikMyKid makes car loop pick up a breeze"

Pros: I like that I can manage all parents and students in the school and monitor how they will be picked up each day.

Cons: I dislike the notifications you can send because they do not always work correctly and you cannot see them in the system.

"PikMyKid has gotten much better and easier to use over time"

Pros: It's very comprehensive. If all stakeholders are on board and using it appropriately, it's possible to know the dismissal plans/whereabouts of each and every student within about 7 seconds.

Cons: There are a lot of small things that make PMK less user-friendly than we would like. You have to take absent students out of the system one-by-one, you need to log out and in each day in order to have updated dismissal plans (some teachers have a hard time with this), and it took a long time to get enough buy-in with all of our stakeholders for it to truly be effective.

Chelsea,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review PikMyKid. We greatly appreciate it. We are thrilled to see you point out how well it works, especially if all of the stakeholders are on board and using it appropriately. This is crucial to implementing a new safety system. We appreciate you pointing out PikMyKid improving over time, we take criticism and feedback very seriously. We want our schools to have the best safety system in place for their students.

Per the multiple similar feedback requests, we have updated the system to allow bulk selections. We hope this has helped resolve a few of these issues for you.

Thank you again,

The PikMyKid Team

"Awesome Solution!"

Comments: PikMyKid has significantly improved our dismissal process. In the past, we used a custom-written Windows-based application to run dismissal, and it was definitely showing its age. PikMyKid has dramatically improved this for both buildings with its responsive, web-based dismissal management solution.

Pros: PikMyKid is very easy to use for teachers, administrators, and parents alike. It ensures dismissal is both efficient and safe. It also saves our staff time not having to deal with dismissal notes and random changes.

Cons: Their ability to integrate with other products like Student Information Systems is limited, and updating data in their system can be cumbersome.
