My Favorite Feature
Notifications are the simplest feature but often make the biggest difference. We say PBJ Pickup gives parents confidence and a quick notification of who picked up their child and what time as soon as it happens goes a long way.
What are the notifications?
In our app, users can choose to turn on / off three different notifications - when a student is picked up, when a class ends, and school news. Notifications come in the form of a text message. When a student is picked up, the parent can be notified with a quick text, when their child's class ends and news from the school such as school closures or events.
Why is it the best?
When I was working and my kids were in preschool, my mom did all their pickups. Each time she would text me, or I would call her to check in. I trusted her but it was always nice to have confirmation that my kids were picked up safely. Getting a quick message, sent automatically when my kids were picked up would have been awesome.
