Community Brands UK, a provider of cloud-based software and payments solutions for UK schools, has acquired Liverpool-headquartered ed tech Parentapps, which provides a platform and mobile app enabling schools and nurseries to invite parents to receive information on their smartphones.
Richard Grazier, president and managing director of Community Brands UK, said: “The addition of Parentapps bolsters our leadership position in the industry and further illustrates our commitment to schools and their parents and students. This strategic partnership aligns with our mission to modernise the way schools use technology, and in turn, frees up valuable time and resources so that school staff and teachers can do what they do best – create a better future for our community.”
Parentapps’ founder and managing director Kevin Clayton added: “The Covid-19 pandemic only hastened the digital transformation for many schools, especially in light of the need to stay connected and to deliver learning materials and instruction remotely. Both Parentapps and Community Brands have played important roles in this ongoing process and are perfect partners in providing the most comprehensive, turnkey solutions for helping schools increase efficiency and engagement.”
