"Best Dismissal Management ever."

Pros: On the staff side, very user friendly. Much better than walkies and overhead announcements.

Cons: While the customer satisfaction reps are GREAT, I wish there was a way to upload corrections to the database. I also wish that rather than using their generated "School ID Number", that the primary key for students was the actual student number issued by the state.

Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy our platform is able to help schools like yours.
We do have the ability for schools to use their own ID numbers for students, but mostly recommend against it for security purposes (used in the app for pick up, can be displayed on car-tags for quick lookup etc) and also length of numbers could effect efficiency in some cases during dismissal. If you would like to adjust the IDs ahead of the 2021-22 school year please let us know-- we would be glad to help. We also offer SFTP sync options if you would like to explore that for automatic data corrections via your SIS. We look forward to helping further enhance your PikMyKid experience!

"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

"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.

"Useful, Helpful, Efficient"

Comments: My overall experience has been positive! To my knowledge, when we have had software glitches, they have neem reported and answered/fixed in a timely manner. My role for PikMyKid is a dispatcher and I like the set up of the app overall.

Pros: Once PikMyKid was established and all users understood how the app worked, the software has been very easy to use! The dismissal process is very smooth and allows communication between teachers and the staff dismissing students to their cars accessible. As long as we have the correct staff/users in place to work the PikMyKid process, our carline runs very smoothly no matter the weather outside. I really like this software and would recommend it to users that are looking to efficiently dismiss students.

Cons: The most difficult part of the software was changing procedures and introducing the app to staff and to parents. Staff was not given enough training on how to use the app, and it took several weeks before we were able to get a smooth process for carline. Parents had to take an action and register their children to the correct defaulted carline, which also seemed to be a process. When there are changes to dismissal time and no after-school programs offered, parents also have to make this change in the app. When they do not, the process for carline is longer because the app will not allow the Dispatcher to change the student name and place them in the correct line. At times, the software malfunctions or glitches which can cause a delay in the dismissal process.

"PIK MY KID for Schools"

Comments: N/A

Pros: PIKMYKID is a great support for HCS students and staff. It keep our students safe, allows parents to remain out of our building and allows dismissal to happen in about five minutes. Prior to the implementation of PIKMYKID it took us about 30 minutes for dismissal and we often had many adults in our building and often did not know who was picking up students. We are grateful for the security features PIKMY KID allows us to have in place.

Cons: The program runs smooth with no issues.
