Single sign-on with parentsportal.scot

By EdTech Discussion No Comments

Parents Booking has been the innovator for software of our type since we invented the ability for parents to make their parent-teacher appointments online a decade ago. Being big thinkers as much as software developers, we’re is proud to announce a partnership with the exciting new creation in Scotland: parentsportal.scot. We are confident this parent portal will become an essential service for parents and schools as it is rolled out across Scotland’s local authorities, and simply had to be part of the revolution.

Parentsportal.scot is simple to sign up to and will give parents access to a range of school-related services online. We were thrilled to be asked to integrate our Parents Booking, and for us to be one of the first to join the project.

Our integration means that parents will be able to log into Parents Booking, to make appointments, in one click (using a secure single sign-on technology), either from the school’s Parents Booking login page, or from parentsportal.scot itself.

Being part of parentsportal.scot helps us further our commitment to schools. We are passionate about helping improve customers’ parental engagement, while also ensuring parents have the most convenient experience possible while engaging with our services.

We’ve got your School’s Events and Clubs Handled

Some of the most-requested features we’ve received over the years are not actually to do with parents’ evenings. We get asked about helping schools with other parent-booking tasks, such as ticketed events, booking seats at a student performance, school trip sign-ups and parents booking places for their children at breakfast or after-school clubs.

We’ve taken time out from continually developing the Parents’ Evening Booking System to give schools all of the above abilities. If you’ve an event or club you want to take bookings from parents for, just ask. The bolt-on modules we’ve created to help schools with these tasks come at a fraction of the Parents’ Evening Booking System cost and can be switched on in seconds.

To learn more about either module, click below. We’ve added a video to each which guides you through how they work:
