CHQ - Sports & Activity Management Software


Published on

CHQ is a powerful online software application that empowers schools to take control of their huge range of extra curricular activities programmes.

With seamless integration into the school Management Information System, CHQ is always up to date, allowing teachers to co-ordinate pupils, staff and parents with ease.

The package of tools allows good news to travel fast. As soon as team selections are made, pupils and parents can be informed by email and SMS. As events and fixtures are created, details are delivered instantly to everyone taking part - kitchens know how many lunches to prepare, bus companies know the number of coaches to provide and teams are told their positions and which kit to pack.

All attendances, absences and assessments are recorded and reported back into the school MIS quickly for enhanced child protection while match reports, team photos and congratulations can be sent directly to parents or published to the school website with a single keystroke.

Used by leading UK and international schools including Winchester College, St Leonard's Mayfield, Langley, North London Collegiate School and BIS Vietnam, CHQ has an integrated, advanced communications dashboard which allows a school to significantly upgrade its existing parent communications software at no additional cost

This is a short overview of CHQ's key benefits.
