Vorteile:

I love that parents can make adjustments to their child's schedule with ease and right on their phone.

Nachteile:

I also find that as parents are announcing, sometimes an parent that just announced for their child is accidentally sent to the car line because three seconds prior, a different name was there.

A+ product for arrival and dismissal

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: We are a summer camp and use PikMyKid as the main tool for arrival and dismissal of students, ensuring that every camper gets to where they are supposed to be at the end of the day and that only authorized people can pick-up. We have used it for four years now and are very happy with the product and customer service. Because the product is designed for schools and other year-round programs, we had to do a little tweaking to integrate into a short-term program (our campers change weekly), but the folks at PikMyKid were very helpful and made the whole thing pain-free.

Vorteile:

- Amazing customer service.- Product is well thought out and tested. It has all the features needed to ensure an easy and safe arrival and dismissal. At the same time, it doesn't have a thousand different features which detract from the main purpose and aren't really needed. -Ensures a safe dismissal-- kids only go home with folks who they are supposed to. - Easy to use and implement. PMK provides thorough training and has lots of resources available. The product is also easy to test and practice with on your own and with your staff. - Our parents love it. Anytime you have to change procedures with parents, there is prone to be backlash. The fact that PMK is an easy to use app and is straight forward, the majority of parents love it and didn't complain about the implementation.

Nachteile:

- When on the "dispatch" screen, you have to keep it up and actively monitoring because there is currently no chime or notification to let you know that a parent has arrived. Probably not an issue for schools that have a set dismissal time, but when you have a window (ie. aftercare, 3:30-5:30), it would be helpful to have a chime or noise so that you didn't have to literally be sitting at the screen.-Like anything, there are certain limitations to the interface and design. That's expected.

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: We were having software issues with our last dismissal enhancement system provider. I had several phone calls from parents that had a hard time. The team implementing the system here was always coming to me with issues as well. I looked at several different options. The entire process of contacting, deciding to go with Pikmykid, and implementing Pikmykid has been seamless and I wish I would have switched sooner. They are leaving their bets parts alone and innovating where no one else is. They are fantastic.

Vorteile:

It is user-friendly, customizable, and the team at Pikmykid gets back to you quickly if you are ever in need.

Nachteile:

I wish there was a button to remove the last person entered in the dispatcher.

Pikmykid

3,0 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

Pikmykid app has streamlined our parent pick up system during a pandemic. We needed a safe and reliable way to get students to their parents/guardians quickly because of the large number of students being picked up in the short time. I am thankful we have this program in place.

Nachteile:

The software doesn't constantly link with our opperating system and so we have to manually enter new students. I think it would also be easier for the system to already have the next student number in place so that we don't have keep track of the next students number.

PMK is Efficient and User Friendly

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: We used PMK daily. It was an integral piece to our overall systems and allowed us to ensure scholars went home to the appropriate vetted person and allowed us to be efficient with our system by projecting the scanned names to our scholars and training them to transition as soon as they saw their name. Our dismissal times were averaging between 8 minutes and 12 minutes for a group of about 200 scholars.

Vorteile:

I appreciated the systematic benefits it offered for our dismissal system. It allowed organization and efficient communication across our staff and users and ensured we were safe and precise in ensuring scholars went home safely.

Nachteile:

I think coordinating and getting parents all up and running and ensuring they use their PMK codes is the most work that goes into the system but it does reap benefits.

Seamless School Dismissal

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: PikMyKid has been a welcomed addition to our end of day routine. I was tasked with implementing a dismissal program my first year as an administrator, as the current format saw too many student near misses in the parking lot. PikMyKid has helped create a clear routine and procedure for dismissal that is easy to follow and also places ownership back on the families as well. Parents are responsible for delegating or updating their child's dismissal mode, if the parent does not update the mode, we will send the student on their designate mode of transportation so that we are able to facilitate a smooth process. This has helped speed up dismissal as well as time is not lost searching for a student.

Vorteile:

We appreciate how the system flows for our dismissal at the end of the day. We are able to quickly get students out the door, in their vehicles or on school busses. The car line has been integral to the success of our implementation.

Nachteile:

When parents that have the app are within our established radius of school, they are still not auto-announcing that they are at school, so we have to manually enter in the student car tag numbers.

PikMyKid helped modernize our dismissal process

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: PikMyKid has been a pleasure to work with and their customer service is outstanding!

Vorteile:

PikMyKid helped streamline our dismissal process. Those picking up our students are easily identifiable and we can ensure we are sending students home with whom they are supposed to go home with. Parents enjoy the notifications they receive when their student is picked up. The teachers and staff enjoy the fact that we are no longer using paper and pencil and that the person picking up and the time of pick up is automatically recorded rather than having to check what time it is and record it manually.

Nachteile:

We are still exploring the capabilities of PikMyKid, but it would be nice to see more integration with the FACTS system. If there was a way to pull information from the FACTS system and then report back to the FACTS system (specifically for attendance) that would help garner more use from the teachers.

Great Dismissal System

4,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: My overall experience has been great. Customer support can not always answer the question, but otherwise it is a great tool for us!

Vorteile:

PikmyKid is easy for staff to use and does a great job for tracking dismissal. Parents are able to change their student's dismissal and teachers are able to see it right away. With PikmyKid students are not waiting outside to be dismissed and can avoid all kinds of weather. Teachers are able to work with students through dismissal because they are notified in their classroom. The best part about PMK is it is easy to use and makes school management efficient.

Nachteile:

I would like it to be easier for parents to add their child at the beginning of the school year. Even with the directions, it is sometimes difficult for a parent to understand.

Perfect dismissal management solution

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: Our experiences with PikMyKid have been amazing! Onboarding and customer service has been SPECTACULAR! They are literally an email away when any questions arise. The system is great for keeping dismissal running quickly and smoothly!

Vorteile:

- Ease of use- Straightforward system- Customer service A+++++++- Parent-facing tech support capabilities- Easy tracking of students for dismissal- Easy integration with PowerSchool

Nachteile:

- No school-facing app; there's a parent app but you need to go to the website as the school. It would be great if an app was created/added for dismissal on the school management side.- All or nothing with some features - it would be great to be able to turn on certain features or have an easier checks and balances system if you turn on certain options for bus changing; etc.

Good software with room for improvement/updates

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Vorteile:

It's taken the guess work out of dismissal for our staff. Teachers know exactly where their student will go at the end of the day which allows us to dismiss 500 students to their guardian in less than 30 minutes.

Nachteile:

As a user, I don't like that I can't make an update for my family. We have three children and logging in to make the same update for each one is time consuming.

Best way to dismiss students!

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: Our dismissal procedures are MUCH safer and can be audited! Things are much more streamlined while simultaneously increasing safety.

Vorteile:

The software is relatively easy to use and very reliable. It's helped increase the safety and security of our K-5 dismissal procedures.

Nachteile:

Some parts of it can be a bit inflexible. Some updates in the past have caused issues; however, they were always quick to communicate workarounds and fixes.

John, Thank you for taking the time to review PikMyKid. We greatly appreciate it. We are so happy to hear that "The software is relatively easy to use and very reliable". Our team works around the clock to make sure we are here for our schools. In regards to updates causing issues, thank you for saying "they were always quick to communicate workarounds and fixes". Our team works hard to update the per the majority of school requests. The PikMyKid tech team is thoughtful in testing and like all things have a hiccup or two on occasion, thank you for understanding and working with us. Thank you, John, The PikMyKid Team

It's getting us through Covid...!

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: It is challenging to feel the need to "micromanage" everyone to this degree...but that is not PMK's problem... Drop off works, and it helps us know that parents have had to communicate with us about their child's health that day. And Pick up goes smoothly, kids are not wandering the halls because they know that their ride is waiting for the, Admin are looking for them at the front of the campus, and their teacher will not release them until they know that is the case.

Vorteile:

It keeps cars in the parking flowing fairly consistently, we can quickly see who is on campus, and who saw them and marked them Present. Teachers all over the campus can see when to dismiss a specific kid. Parents are notified when their child is released from school.

Nachteile:

There are always a few parents who struggle with technology...and trying to help them...but life is challenging right now and we're trying to make as much of life work as possible... (((sigh))) One of my major dislikes with PMK is the fact that despite the fact that specific students are checked in the Live Dismissal Progress numbers are always inaccurate. Ours always says there are 387 kids needing to be dismissed, but that is the total number of students we have in the PMK system - not the total that we checked into the campus that morning. Is there a setting that we need to change to have that be accurate?! This aspect feels strange to me, because the whole point of the Check In process is to know exactly who is on campus. So, at what point does the system throw all students in as if they are all on campus?

Awesome Solution!

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: PikMyKid has significantly improved our dismissal process. In the past, we used a custom-written Windows-based application to run dismissal, and it was definitely showing its age. PikMyKid has dramatically improved this for both buildings with its responsive, web-based dismissal management solution.

Vorteile:

PikMyKid is very easy to use for teachers, administrators, and parents alike. It ensures dismissal is both efficient and safe. It also saves our staff time not having to deal with dismissal notes and random changes.

Nachteile:

Their ability to integrate with other products like Student Information Systems is limited, and updating data in their system can be cumbersome.

Useful, Helpful, Efficient

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: My overall experience has been positive! To my knowledge, when we have had software glitches, they have neem reported and answered/fixed in a timely manner. My role for PikMyKid is a dispatcher and I like the set up of the app overall.

Vorteile:

Once PikMyKid was established and all users understood how the app worked, the software has been very easy to use! The dismissal process is very smooth and allows communication between teachers and the staff dismissing students to their cars accessible. As long as we have the correct staff/users in place to work the PikMyKid process, our carline runs very smoothly no matter the weather outside. I really like this software and would recommend it to users that are looking to efficiently dismiss students.

Nachteile:

The most difficult part of the software was changing procedures and introducing the app to staff and to parents. Staff was not given enough training on how to use the app, and it took several weeks before we were able to get a smooth process for carline. Parents had to take an action and register their children to the correct defaulted carline, which also seemed to be a process. When there are changes to dismissal time and no after-school programs offered, parents also have to make this change in the app. When they do not, the process for carline is longer because the app will not allow the Dispatcher to change the student name and place them in the correct line. At times, the software malfunctions or glitches which can cause a delay in the dismissal process.

Christian Academy of Laurel PikMyKid Review

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Other than the cons listed above, it's been wonderful.

Vorteile:

The arrival and dismissal process is a dream compared to our previous system. It's very easy for parents to change who is picking up their child and makes it a lot easier to verify that person when they arrive for dismissal.

Nachteile:

The Check-In process is confusing for new users. Our first few days were a lot of parents thinking that pushing the button for dismissal meant they checked in for arrival. I think the check-in button needs to be more obvious. Also we have some students who do not use aftercare every day so we're having to manually enter those students to car line dismissal on those days. There may be a way to fix this but we haven't figured it out yet.

Vorteile:

Pik My Kid is very user friendly and our community relies on it to make our dismissal more efficient and safe. Our neighbors are happy as well, because we are able to move cars through quicker.

Nachteile:

Occasionally after an upgrade there are some issues with needing a patch, but most upgrades have actually been for useful purposes.

Longterm User - School Arrival & Dismissal

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

The record-keeping aspect of PMK allows us to know where every student went at the end of the day. We have thorough records for safety. We are able to send messages through the app to all parents in a certain dismissal. For ex : Your bus is late today We've been using the medical check-in for Covid restrictions this school year, and it's ben quite effective

Nachteile:

1) Parent buy-in is the hardest aspect. If people don't utilize it from their end, we are stuck doing the leg work online 2) If Wifi is weak, the app is basically not functional

Easy To Use Dismissal Program

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We love PikMyKid! It makes our lives so much easier and gives us that little bit of extra structure to have a successful pick up process at the end of the day.

Vorteile:

We needed a better system to manage our childcare center's dismissal system to accommodate our 600 child capacity. It is also a great system to help manage alternate pick ups if someone other than a parent is picking up the children.

Nachteile:

Minor issue, but I feel a better table of contents would assist with deciding which report to pull for my needs.

Worth Every Penny!

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: From the very beginning everyone was extremely helpful and very timely in answering our questions. It was amazing how quickly they were able to help us get set up and going right at the first of the year. Any questions or concerns we have had were handled immediately and they had awesome ideas on how to trouble shoot our very unique pick up line.

Vorteile:

We love the parent communication piece and the accountability it provides for both our staff and the families. It's a relief to know that we have a handle of where every student is released at the end of the day.

Nachteile:

We love this software and have zero complaints. Any questions that we have had were answered promptly by the company and we were given support every step of the way.

Use of Product

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

Very user friendly, helps keep track of how students are going home on a daily basis. Allows me to remove students who are absent or left early just for a particular day so that those doing dismissal can focus solely on the students that are in the school.

Nachteile:

Personally I have not found anything that I have been discouraged about.

PikMyKid for School Pickup

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We have been extremely happy with pikmykid! Very easy to implement and administer

Vorteile:

The ease of use, training PikMyKid provides, and their support. We implemented the application at our school in about a week. PikMyKid is very responsive to questions and provides training to help you get up and running.

Nachteile:

I would like the pikmykid dismissal to be a little faster on looking up numbers (when parents forget their number), allow you reorder your line faster when dismissing, and when delegating it should automatically put the child into the correct carpool line if its another parent.

Car line magic

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: PikMyKid has already helped us shave time off our daily carline and we hope that we can trim it down even further. Teachers can project the carline queue onto screens in their room, so students can begin packing up before their name is called.

Vorteile:

We love that parents are able to use the app to mark students absent or to delegate their pickup to someone else. When parents mark their child absent in the app, we can skip the phone call when reconciling attendance. We have also made use of the messaging capabilities to let parents know when athletic practice had to be cancelled for some reason or other.

Nachteile:

I wish there was an easy way to add a kid to a parent or drive who has already announced themselves. Sometimes we get last minute calls from parents who have missed the delegation cut off and it would be easier to just add a kid or kids to a specific student, rather than deleting someone already announced so that I can look them up and add them back with their carpool rider.

Works well for our small school

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: PikMyKid has helped our small school with a large, spread-out campus keep track of our students at both arrival and dismissal while keeping them physically distanced due to COVID this year.

Vorteile:

Easy to integrate a COVID health screening survey, easy for multiple people to see dismissal information and be "in the know" as the process happens in real-time, excellent and prompt customer support.

Nachteile:

As a very small school, we don't have the staff to manage multiple dismissal methods each day. Switching between car/bus/walker lines is a little difficult because often one person is doing it all. The learning curve for parents was a little steep, mostly because the places to click on the app are not intuitive. The geofence feature doesn't really work. Some parents can check in from miles away when the feature is set to the length of a football field. We WISH it had a report that could show who is NOT checked in through the health survey instead of just who IS.

Review

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

I like that it helps for safety reasons - we know when kids are no longer on school property and are able to easily see who is still on campus.

Nachteile:

Parents needed a formal training on how to use the software. With COVID and social distancing measures, we were unable to host formal training and suffered because of it. It was difficult getting parents on board and in the know of why/how to use the app. I also wish there was a button to see parent contact info from the dispatch mode, in case we need to call/contact parents.
