The comprehensive SchoolMessenger product line from West includes the flagship service SchoolMessenger Communicate℠ (broadcast notification) as well as SchoolMessenger Presence℠ (website content management system), SchoolMessenger CustomApp℠ (custom mobile apps), SchoolMessenger SafeMail℠ (safe student email), SchoolMessenger SecureFile℠ (secure document delivery), SchoolMessenger K12 Social℠ (social media management), and SchoolMessenger Passport℠ (single sign on).

“The new Education group reaffirms West’s commitment to the education market and to the schools we work with,” said Robert Iskander, general manager, Education. “Customers will now see the West logo and name more often as part of the SchoolMessenger product family that they rely upon every day, backed by the same people they have trusted for years.”
