EZCommunicator has numerous integrated modules that are accessed from the web-based administration console. In addition to community members signing up for alerts and news, you can import parents and staff from your internal databases nightly.
Create school-level sites with a few button clicks. Empower you schools or other central office departments with the tools to communicate with their specific audiences. Interfaces give each school their own ‘sandbox’ where they work with their users and content, which they can share with other schools.
Define administration roles so your staff can access the Administrator Console and publish eNewsletters or Notices, or perform specific administrative functions in your Online Contact Center. Copy roles to your school interfaces to maintain consistency with the permissions you give school administrators in your system.
Choose which modules you want your end users to have access to at any given time. Provide them with instructions and information on any of the pages they view – in English and Spanish, including when they sign up for or sign in to your Online Contact Center. Setup your RSS Feeds so users can subscribe to your publication archives.
Add or edit your user records. Search through your list based on contact details, school relationships, group memberships or when they signed up, and assign those users to other groups or relationships. Import new users and EZCommunicator will ensure no duplicates are created, or use our EZLink module to connect with your Student Information System.
Create public groups and options that your users can subscribe to, or make private groups only you can assign users. Set up auto-responders for any public group so new subscribers are welcomed and know the kind of information to expect. Organize your groups and options and consolidate or remove them when they are no longer needed.
Create rich HTML Newsletters in a WYSIWYG editor from scratch or any saved template. Publish to any group, list or combination of users – immediately, or schedule for future publishing. Allow users to add comments about your published newsletters, and archive them so they appear on your RSS Feed. Track the number of Newsletters and bounced messages.
Create announcements or alerts that include email (HTML and Plain Text), and text messages. Publish to any group, or combination of users – immediately, or schedule for future publishing. Post to Facebook and Twitter and archive so notices appear on your RSS Feed. Track user action such as opens, bounces and unsubscribe.
Gather feedback from your community with online surveys, or create sign-up forms. Create surveys with an unlimited number of questions, including text, multiple choice, ranking and rating questions and many more. Publish surveys in your newsletters or notices, or simply add a link to your website. Track and view results in real time and export your results to disk.
Create event types that users can subscribe to and receive notification when you add a new event to your calendar. Create events and publish them to subscribers or any group of users in your database. Integrate links to your calendar events in your newsletters so you can notify your subscribers about scheduled activities.
Setup a library of folders with different documents you upload from disk. Link individual files to your newsletters or notices, or insert a list of all files uploaded to a folder. Share your files with other schools so they can include them in their communication to parents, students and staff.
