Cisco Systems has unveiled automatic communication software called SchoolMessenger for Cisco Unified Communications, which will enable schools to convey important information to parents more efficiently. < ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


SchoolMessenger, a US parental notification company, has integrated its system with the Cisco telephony application, which is based on Internet protocol (IP). Teachers can record a personalised message, select a preprogrammed calling list, and send a message to parents from a computer or IP phone. Cisco claims that the SchoolMessenger system provides more efficient communications compared to traditional autodialer systems. In turn, this helps improve attendance rates and increases student performance. A school district in Utah, one in Washington, and another in Illinois have implemented the communication technology.
