1. What is Komeer?
Komeer is a new two-way messaging service for schools that saves schools up to 85% on their SMS Texting costs, making parents lives easier and saves the school time by making it really easy to send messages and organise school activities.
2. What type of messages can Komeer send?
Komeer can quickly and easily send everyday school messages in the same way as from TextaParent, Aladdin or Databiz. The difference and advantages however are that Komeer messages are not limited to 160 characters and can include small schoolbag notes, images and weblinks to your school website. Also as Komeer is charged at a low cost flat “all in” yearly fee, the school with Komeer can send as many messages as they like to both parents and not worry about paying â‚¬ .05 cents per text. Komeer messages are well presented and can be personalised to automatically include the parents and the child’s name within the message.
3. Can I setup different groups to send messages to?
Yes, with Komeer you can setup an unlimited number of messaging groups for each year, class, activity (Football, Music Speech and Drama etc), Parents and Teachers etc. Groups can be easily setup by both child name or parent name.
4. How do I setup Komeer and get my data across from our existing system?
You don’t have to! Parents simply install and setup their details on the Komeer App and subscribe to your main School group. Once the School approves the parent, their full up to date contact details are available to the school. i.e We have designed Komeer so there is no need to import or manually setup parents details. Setup is easy and our local support team will guide you through the process.
5. What if a parent changes their mobile number?
Not a problem, Komeer is not dependent on the Parents mobile number and will work on most smartphones and tablets to make sure the parents receive your messages. In fact, the Komeer app includes a unique facility allowing parents to keep their full contact details up to date for the school so you don’t have to. This saves School Secretaries hours of work.
6. What does Komeer Two-Way messsaging mean?
Two-Way means that by using the Komeer App parents can quickly respond and engage with the school. So parents can tap “YES” to confirm they have received a message from the school or tap “NO” to say they will not be attending a school parents evening. The School Principal and Secretary can then see the responses on a simple easy to read dashboard. For example: 182 parents have said “YES” they will be attending the next parents evening and 255 parents have acknowledged “YES” that school will be closing early on Friday.
7. Is Komeer a WhatsApp or Facebook for Schools?
Absolutely not. Komeer has been three years in development working with and listening closely to School Principals’ and Secretaries. Komeer has been deliberately designed so that the School fully controls communications providing parents with a limited but highly effective way of responding and engaging with the School.
8. What does Komeer cost?
Komeer costs from â‚¬99.00 / Â£99.00 including VAT per year for unlimited messaging and users. We currently have a special offer “Sign up” for our Free Trial and if you like us, Your first year is half price”. We are offering a 60 day no obligation FREE trial. Contact us to find out more.

10. What about security, privacy and Data protection?
