SchoolSite (Website) Extras- An Overview
Below is a list of our "SchoolSite Extras", which are additional features you can purchase. Please contact Inbox Design to find out more 07 281 1600.
The E-Newsletters Extra leverages your sites news section to generate newsletters that get sent you your important audiences so you only have to enter the content once. Newsletters are sent via MailChimp or Sendy to give you useful statistics about your readership and your mailing list is synced with your KAMAR contacts.
SchoolSite (website) makes it easy to add news articles to your web sites to help keep your community abreast of important news. News articles can contain text, photo galleries, downloadable file attachments, and video. The ease at which content can be added means that news can be added on a daily basis, keeping your site looking current and making it even more of a resource for your community.
When your team decide to send a newsletter, instead of manually re-entering your content into a page layout application or separate newsletter system, SchoolSite allows you to simply select the news content you have already entered which then gets automatically formatted into an attractive newsletter and is emailed to your community.
Sport & Activity Registrations
This Module enables your school to organise registrations for sport teams or other extracurricular activities such as Music lessons, without the need to use a 3rd party provider. Our activity Registration module strives to always keeps caregivers in the loop by first requiring students to express their interest in the activity whereupon their caregivers are notified via email and asked to give permission for their child to register.
The email that caregivers receive contains a link for them to click asking them to login to the registration site using their KAMAR account. Once logged in, caregivers can read details, terms and conditions and finally approve or decline their child’s registration.
The system allows you to create any number of activities and set which year levels can register for which activity. Each sport can have its own homepage where contact information, news and photos and videos can be posted. Activity fees can also be set up to be paid online. All student and caregiver information is checked against your existing KAMAR data, so no extra work is required to connect with your community. To help your organisers meet deadlines, reminders can be sent to caregivers via email and SMS TXT when they are late in giving approval for the activity.
For all your event ticketing needs, our SchoolSite E-Tickets Extra allows you to create events and sell tickets online. The E-Ticket system is suitable for any type of event, whether it’s a College Ball, Performing Arts Awards night, Quiz Night, Fundraising Dinner, or any other event.
If you are hosting an event with assigned seating, there is an option to allow ticket purchasers to choose their seat.
All purchases with regards to the event can be done online as well as still offering the option of paying in person at the event. For managing the event and tracking attendees, we also offer a companion mobile app that scans attendee’s E-Tickets as they enter your venue for the event.
You can set limits on attendance, set multiple pricing levels and ticket types as well as track sales with full detailed reporting, and exporting into accounting software such as Xero.
With E-Tickets you can set reminders with ICS calendar invitations and also post-event feedback requests. Sales are able to be vetted against running balances in KAMAR.
Our E-Commerce module enables your school to sell uniforms, stationary or anything else. Features include full online payments, inventory tracking and endless flexibility in adding products, product options and multiple ‘shops’. This ability means that your site can host a uniform shop that remains accessible throughout the year while also creating temporary shops that can be used for fundraising or any other purpose.
For record keeping purposes, there is full reporting to export sales reports, and also export in to Xero or other accounting software. Inbox Design also provides options for receiving online donations, payments and other kinds of fundraising.
The Job Vacancies Extra is a full-featured tool that allow your school to post vacancies including detailed job descriptions, qualification requirements and automatic posting to other job listing sites. Prospective job candidates can apply for the jobs you post directly on your website using a ministry of education approved online application form, and attach a CV and cover letter, all of which gets saved in a private database of applicants.
Reunion Events and Alumni Connections
Organising a reunion event for your alumni can be a lucrative but challenging undertaking. SchoolSite contains a complete reunion management system that makes it easy to host these events and has so far generated over $200,000 in ticket sales for our schools.
The system allows you to define all aspects of your event. Online ticket sales, regular and early-bird pricing, table assignments can all be configured as required. In addition to ticket sales, the system also allows you to receive donations from attendees as well as offer the sale of commemorative items and additional activities or excursions relating to your event.
In preparation for the day of your event, you can use the extensive reporting features to export attendance lists and table seating arrangements as well as exporting your sales data to Xero and other bookkeeping systems.
We can migrate graduating students from KAMAR into an alumni database that also allows students from past years to register themselves. Keep in touch with alumni by sending low-cost, rich email newsletters whenever required. Alumni can log in at any time update their contact information, make on-line donations or share their accomplishments. When it comes time to host a reunion, our Reunion Event manager takes all of the hard work out of organising an event
Community Education Site Extra
If your school is interested in offering community education courses, SchoolSite offers a flexible and easy to manage solution. To date, this system has generated over $1,000,000 for our schools.
The system allows you to define an unlimited number of course categories and courses, set attendance limits, as well as attach instructor profiles to each course. Course fees can be set for each course and include additional fees for course materials and supplies. Once created, your courses are automatically displayed on your website where visitors can browse through course offerings and register.
Registration and payments are handled online through a secure payment gateway. Full reporting is available, exporting class roles and well as revenue exporting to Excel and Xero.
Art Show/ Fundraiser Extra
Our Art Show Fundraising system makes it easy for your school to host lucrative fundraisers featuring local artists.
This system has been in use for several years and has helped raise over 1.8 million dollars for our schools that have used it. Artists can create an account and then upload photos of artwork for sale, upon which your school earns a commission. Your team have total control of which artists are featured and which art is displayed. Art sales can be live in-person or conducted on-line only. Combine this with our e-Tickets system to organise a gala, and you have an amazing tool for engaging with your community and raising funds.
