Communication between schools, students, parents, and community members is easier than ever with the new MPS Whippets app and updated website. The app and website were created by Apptegy who specializes in Thrillshare, a tool that brings school marketing and school communications together in a single mobile app.
“The new app and website are very cohesive. The old app basically just gave you links and redirected you back to the website. Our new app is very streamlined and houses documents and information. It’s more user friendly,” H.S. Media Specialist Erica Chancellor said. “Before we used three different platforms: Blackboard to send out our automated calls, classroom intercom to run our social media accounts, and SOCS to host our website. We switched to a new company (Apptegy) that hosts all these systems in one platform called Thrillshare. Now in one click, we can send out a message to all three.”
