Features

Parent Orbit in Motion

Take a look at some of the exciting features available in Parent Orbit!

Extra Curricular Hub

The Extra Curricular Hub provides a centralised view of sessions such as training, fixtures and extra curricular events.

Specific portal pages keep everyone informed of any schedule changes and allow busy parents to stay up to date with cultural, sporting, musical and academic programs.

Calendars & Diaries

The School Calendar and Daily Notices allow parents to quickly view term dates, school events and holiday periods.

The eDiary displays information relevant to students and integrates data from various programs such as the Learning Management System, Appointment Log, Extra Curricular and Timetable.

Calendar and Diary feeds are condensed into an easy-to-view Daily Digest that displays important information, right on the homescreen.

Student Maintenance

Parents can view and edit important student data and keep administrators up to date with critical medical, emergency and personal information.

The student page ensures parents can instantly access report cards, receive updates to curricular results, and maintain open lines of communication with teachers.

Notifications

Targeted notifications mean parents only get alerted about information that’s for their family.

Notifications can be generated or automatically sent out to specific families based on attendance, extra curricular participation, events or pastoral care entries.

The onus is on the school rather than the parents to ensure the appropriate information is distributed.

Parents can acknowledge notifications so schools ensure their messages are received.

Notifications

 

Invitations, Acknowledgments & Bookings

Parents will receive notifications that keep them informed on student's attendance.

They can quickly acknowledge absences, provide information to the school and view a history of attendance.

Parents can send absences to the school for processing as well as attach any relevant medical certificates.

NOTIFICATIONS

 

Events & Payments

Allow parents to make easy payments on the go. Sign up for excursions, pay school fees, and send payments through the dedicated payment programs.

Parents are able to view calendar events and invitations to activities specific to their students.

What Our Customers Are Saying

"The community has embraced Orbit and seen the benefits of a more consolidated app offering native to TASS and fully integrated.

Our communications are more streamlined via notifications. We did not have the ability to target app notifications to specific students/families, and this resulted in parents often missing out on key information.

It was one of the easiest and smoothest implementations of a product we have ever had. We were provided with a clear timeline and there was very minimal work required at our end."

"The Parent Orbit implementation and rollout was seamless, with the app interaction being intuitive which has enabled the College to streamline several parent processes and interactions. Since then, TASS has been proactively delivering enhanced and new functionality.

Overall, Parent Orbit has enabled both the College and parent community to take process interactions to a higher level."

"Some of our parents found having to use a browser for Parent Lounge as a barrier to their ability to engage with the school. Using an app has really helped on this front. An app simplifies things for parents, and we have found that parents are much better engaged now. 

The app is clean and easy to use, and we are particularly impressed with how many features have now been developed and included in the app.

Our parent community has responded very positively to the app. The ease with which the app has been accepted and used really speaks volumes about the quality of the product."
