Intrado Announces New Digital Workflow Automation Tool For K-12 Schools

June 3, 2021

Leader in school communication solutions partners with Permission Click Inc. to offer powerful automation tools for managing forms and approval flows

ISLANDIA, N.Y., June 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intrado Corporation (“Intrado” or the “Company”), a global leader in technology-enabled services, announced today that it will offer a new digital solution to enable K-12 schools to automate tedious manual workflows, saving valuable resources.

The new service, powered by Permission Click Inc. (“Permission Click”), is offered through a single, trusted platform that is seamless to deploy. This solution is urgently needed to help schools safely restart and resume activities post-pandemic. It delivers three essential elements for K-12 schools: 

  • Automation of paper-based forms and workflows, allowing for faster data collection and approvals, increased policy compliance, and lower risk
  • Easy implementation with IT-free deployment, live training, and setup support
  • A single platform to manage, monitor, and store forms and approvals

The platform can be deployed to parents, coaches, teachers, schools, staff, and district administrators to manage permissions, student registrations, athletic forms, media releases, and more. 

“Increasingly, our valued education customers want one vendor to cover all of their digital communication workflow needs,” said Vik Krishnan, General Manager of Intrado Digital Workflows. “Through this partnership, we are able to expand our offerings to further meet the needs of our customers.”

More than 63,000 schools across the U.S. and Canada rely on a SchoolMessenger solution from Intrado, and educational leaders have trusted SchoolMessenger products for more than 20 years. Thanks to Intrado, school administrators have all the tools they need for on-premises communication and device management, off-premises communications and workflow management, and safety and incident response management.
