So what makes PTO different?

The Benefits of Booking Teacher Interviews Online
Like most online booking sites, PTO:
- Gives perpetual, direct access to parents’ meetings
- Allows immediate real-time management overview and reporting.
- Totally removes any back and forth between teachers, students and parents.
- Eliminates double-booking of teachers or parents – cancellations and re-booking can be done anytime.
Parent Teacher Online is used effectively across the globe. There have been over 10 million school interviews booked through the system. Parent Teacher Online provides maximum flexibility for schools and keeps the process for parents, teachers and administration staff effortless. Parent Teacher Online is the most comprehensive booking system for parent teacher interviews.
Schools increasingly need to be security conscious with all student information. With many online booking systems, information that is being entered via the internet by the school is simply not secure. Potentially, anyone could sign up as a parent of a specific student to investigate whether they are enrolled there. With most other systems, should someone know the child’s name and parents email address, they are able to access the system and view appointments. PTO maintains the highest level of Internet Security available. This means that any data entered into the system is 99.99999% protected—the same level of protection used by banks and big business.
PTO is compliant with all UK and EU Data Protection requirements.
PTO prides itself on making an appointment booking system that is the simplest and fastest for parents and teachers to use. Administrative staff uploads all relevant information from the school MIS into PTO. The system operates well with minimum input, although schools may modify many aspects of the system to suit their needs. Parent Teacher Online has a Help Desk team dedicated to answering any questions and assist schools in any way possible. Our Help Desk can be accessed by phone or email. Simple!
Schools maintain total control of all their data with PTO. Teachers and parents access PTO through school intranet or website links. Additionally, admin staff may modify the system to suit their needs, and all information related to each round of parents’ evenings is archived for future reference. Statistics may be viewed using graphs and tables to compare parents’ evenings, and investigate booking trends within the school. Admin staff may even determine those parents who have neglected to attend meetings over several years.
While most parents’ evening booking sites provide limited technical support, we pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service. Email queries are answered within 24 hours, and our Help Desk team provide prompt phone support. Parent Teacher Online will ensure your parents’ evening process is stress free!
While most online systems make you conform to their structure, our school appointment booking system adapts to your needs! Parents can switch between an automatic mode (which organises a schedule for you) and manual mode (which provides greater control over the booking process). Parents may choose whether to save, print or export the appointment/s directly to their calendar or smart phone. Schools can modify the online system to suit their needs. Schools can change terminology used on the system, messages to parents, appointment lengths, break times for teachers, and much more!
The hours required to organise parents’ evening by teachers and administration staff are extensive and costly. Additionally, there is the hassle of organising schedules suitable for both teachers and parents. PTO offers parents, teachers and administration staff a stress free, simple approach to organising parents’ meetings and we calculate that the system more than pays for itself the first time it is used!
To ensure a stress-free booking system, Parent Teacher Online provides unlimited FREE support in establishing and maintaining PTO in your school. Our online booking system allows complete access for multiple parents’ meetings throughout the year. Schools have a fixed yearly fee with access to unlimited bookings, unlimited students and unlimited access to the Help Desk. to discover the most cost effective package for your school.
