Why an App Matters
Native mobile is more powerful
Having a native mobile app for your student portal is simply table stakes for today’s students. They grew up in a mobile world and expect information to be in the palm of their hand. Having a portal that offers a cohesive experience across web and mobile amplifies your reach and engagement and gives you access to key mobile features and functionality.
Push it real good
If a student isn’t checking their email, has changed their phone number (so you can’t SMS them) and isn’t logging into the portal, how are you supposed to reach them? A native mobile app allows you to send push notifications, giving you a better chance of getting in front of them.
With push notifications, you can make sure students always have the most important information without having to go look for it. You can also encourage engagement by sending a notification reminding students to log into the portal if they’ve been inactive for a while or have pressing tasks.
Stop making students hunt for what they need. Instead, serve it to them when they need it most in a highly personalized and engaging way.
