MarketVolt and PowerSchool Join Forces to Help Schools Engage Parents and Families

Partnership optimizes schools’ ability to send personalized emails to families

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Feb. 5, 2016 – MarketVolt, an email service provider offering unique solutions for schools, and PowerSchool Group LLC (“PowerSchool”), the #1 leading provider of student information systems and services in K-12 education, joined forces to offer an integrated communications solution automating the way schools communicate with families and other community stakeholders.

powerschool-isv-logoPowerSchool, the world’s #1 leading student information system, supports 40 million users and over 15 million students in 73 countries, playing a central role in a network of integrated systems designed to provide K-12 districts with a cohesive solution to manage all mission-critical administrative processes and instructional data. PowerSchool enables today’s educators to make timely decisions that impact student performance while creating a collaborative environment for parents, teachers and students to work together in preparing 21st century learners for the future.

“Our partnership with PowerSchool strengthens our offering for schools by integrating our email marketing solution with the world’s best student information system (SIS). We have many clients in common with PowerSchool for whom this is a victory. Our mutual clients now can automatically synchronize contact data between our systems and generate more relevant email messages with less time, effort and cost. With this technology integration and mutual marketing agreement, we expect more of our school clients to choose PowerSchool for SIS, and more PowerSchool clients to choose MarketVolt as their email service provider,” said Peter Shinkle, MarketVolt Chief Executive Officer.

Through the integration, PowerSchool users will have all of their email recipients seamlessly and automatically updated in their MarketVolt account, enabling school communications managers to focus less on administering lists and uploading data — and more on communicating with families about education. In addition, MarketVolt enables schools to send customized emails to every family, providing relevant information for their student’s educational experience.

“We are excited to see this partnership with MarketVolt bring greater usability to the PowerSchool community,” said Karin Holtz, PowerSchool’s Vice President of Alliances and Business Development. “Bringing the two products together as one integrated solution creates an opportunity for the education community to reach out and engage parents and families like never before.
