ParentLink XP from Parlant Technology is a school communication system that provides parents, students and school personnel with unprecedented access to important information. ParentLink XP provides information regarding attendance, grades, homework, and other school related events to users by way of phone, e-mail and form letters. Users have the ability to specify when, where and how this information comes to them. The product was designed specifically as a centralized communication solution for school districts because it requires a significantly smaller amount of resources to administer and maintain its central system. Because ParentLink XP is completely Web-based, it d'es not have to be installed at each school, and thus requires less district personnel to operate. For details, go to www.parlant.com.
