The mobile directory is the cloud version of the standard print directory, which contains the contact information of all parents and families in the school. The MobileArq app has a logical, easy to use interface through which parents can access school directory information on their mobile devices as well as desktop computers, whenever and wherever they need it. Unlike printed directories, new data can be added and corrections made in real-time so information is always up-to-date, and families can chose to opt out or edit personal contact information easily throughout the school year. MobileArq provides the user the added convenience of calling/emailing/texting and message groups directly from the App. MobileArq's provides PTAs all-in-one portal to manage their communication, fundraising and memberships. MobileArq is the first to also provide APIs for third parties to write applications for parents, teachers and students.
