SCHOOL PRICING

Flat rate annual fee with no SMS alert costs

SchoolAlerts.ie free school alerts for parents The SchoolAlerts.ie pricing model is designed to keep your costs down and offer a budget-friendly alternative to older "SMS Credit" plans. We are offering bulk-message communications for many years, and our view is that schools should not be penalised for sending out alerts, particularly during days like Storm Ophelia. Instead of SMS, we deliver alerts to 3rd party apps that parents will be familiar with. These "push notifications" do not cost us and we do not charge you. Instead we provide our service as a flat annual fee of just €299 per year (including VAT). This is the total cost you will pay during the year, regardless of how many alerts you send out to parents.

The advantages of our service and cost model are as follows:

  • By using push notifications instead of SMS, it means that alerts to parents do not cost your school.
  • SMS are limited in size to 160 characters - there are no such restrictions with SchoolAlerts.ie app notifications.
  • You will not run out of credits at a critical time - send alerts to apps as often as you like without watching your balance.
  • Payment is made at the start of as a school year and there is less administration than trying to arrange SMS credit payments during the year.
  • Apps take up a lot of space on parent smartphones. By using existing 3rd party apps it means parents do not need to manage another app that takes up valuable space.
  • With a flat rate fee, SchoolAlerts.ie means you can budget an exact payment amount each year from the school finances. SMS costs, on the other hand, are an unknown and you can go through an entire yearly spend on days like Storm Ophelia.
  • If parents are abroad and roaming, then they are NOT charged to receive our app alerts. SMS can cost parents when they are away, so this is a means to cut down parent spending on roaming charges.
