Top 5 benefits of using Audiri

An online school communication platform

As a busy parent, I know how important it is to stay connected with your child’s school. But with so many communication channels like paper notes, emails, texts, and social media posts, it can be quite overwhelming to keep track of everything. That’s where Audiri comes in – an all-in-one communication tool that streamlines school communications and makes it easier for parents and schools to stay connected. In this blog post, I’m going to share with you the top five benefits of using Audiri.



1. Effective communication between parents and schools

Communication is key, and when it comes to schools and parents, it’s no different. A strong relationship between the school and the wider community can positively affect student learning, well-being, and development outcomes. With Audiri, parents can stay up-to-date with school news, activities, and updates instantly and effortlessly. Schools can communicate and engage with parents easily through the app, which sends push notifications to their smartphones and emails. This helps to improve parental engagement, which is a top priority for many schools.

2. Easy access to important information

Let’s face it, we’re all glued to our smartphones these days. With 86% of all adults in Australia owning a smartphone, virtual communication tools like Audiri have become more accessible than ever. Schools can easily inform parents about anything from important updates to school projects and volunteering opportunities. With everything accessible in one place, even parents who may not be as involved in the school community can easily engage in school activities. This can help parents feel more connected to their child’s school and play a positive part in their opinion towards the school.

3. Cost-effective and environmentally friendly

Did you know that on average, schools across Australia use 2,000 sheets of paper per day? That’s a lot of paper! By using virtual communication tools like Audiri, schools can significantly reduce their budget spend on resources like paper and ink. Audiri also helps schools reduce errors in school publications, as it prompts schools to review messages before sending them. With just one click, schools can send messages to parents and eliminate the need to reprint letters and forms. This saves schools both time and money, and is also environmentally friendly!

4. Streamlined school services

Schools all over Australia are looking to streamline their services and reduce headaches for staff and parents. With Audiri, schools can integrate with other valuable features and platforms like My School Connect, a cashless system for schools. This means that parents can access school canteen ordering, the school uniform shop, and payments for raffles and events all in one place within the Audiri app. Newsletters and Parent-Teacher Interview bookings are also built into Audiri, eliminating the need for schools to use multiple platforms to serve these functions. By choosing Audiri, schools can save both time and money and make school processes more seamless.

5. Save admin time

Aside from the time saved contacting or chasing parents, there are many other areas where Audiri can provide efficiencies and productivity boosts. For example, at my daughter’s school, the administrative staff would manually sort and email 250 parents with a photograph of their child after a badge ceremony. Can you imagine how much time that would take? With Audiri’s powerful integration with GeoSnapShot, AI and facial recognition technology can filter photographs with just one click. Not only can schools filter out photos of students on the ‘no photograph register,’ but parents can also use this technology to access every photograph of their child ever taken at a school event. Another way that Audiri saves time is by providing cashless online payments through My School Connect integration. This eliminates the need for manual processing of payments and reduces the risk of errors or security breaches.

Using Audiri not only saves time and money, but it also helps make school processes more seamless, ultimately leading to better engagement between schools and parents.


So, if you’re tired of using multiple communication methods to keep up with your child’s school, give Audiri a try!

Connect. Collaborate. Be Heard.


Three key challenges that schools and community organisations face in connecting and informing parents, students and members. And these challenges have a beautiful new streamlined communication solution in Audiri.


Audiri, meaning “To Be Heard”, is focused on streamlining engagement within communities. While SkoolBag and Sportsbag are deeply rooted in school and sporting communities, we are thrilled to relaunch with expanded functionality in 2023.


We have been listening to our clients’ feedback and have seen how communication challenges within communities have changed in recent years. To answer these challenges, we are proud to introduce new technologies and use cases. We have significantly improved usability and visual appeal, and we are working to ensure that the most valued features are available on a single, simple platform.



Here are the features you love:



  • Placing orders and payments at school: Uniforms, Tuckshops! Parents can streamline their apps and make payments within the Audiri app using the MySchoolConnect integration. We can configure these ordering systems directly with your school’s P&C if they manage these programs.
  • Share photos with parents: Save significant office admin staff time and share photos of students at the school more securely using Audiri’s GeoSnapshot Integration.
  • Integrated Newsletter: Audiri includes a template builder and publishing tool for your school newsletter within the console, so you don’t need to pay for an additional newsletter publishing tool.
  • RSVP capabilities for events: The Events module in Audiri includes RSVP capabilities, which supercharge your ability to deliver on-campus events.
  • Set up user groups, so messages are targeted and timely: Bus running late bringing the Grade 5s back from camp? Permission forms due back for that Preppie excursion? Make sure parents aren’t drowning in notifications and see the important stuff for their family, by activating our handy Groups functionality.

And here are new powerful features that are newly available with Audiri.

  • Parent Teacher Interview Scheduler: Streamline the interview booking process. Teachers and administrators can easily manage and schedule interview slots with accuracy and efficiency. Parents can book their preferred time through the app, making it easier than ever to schedule interviews at the touch of a button. It’s a win for teachers and a win for parents!
  • Direct and group messaging: Consolidate your school-to-parent communication by using in-app messaging, which eliminates the need for teachers to send traditional emails that may end up lost in the parent’s inboxes.
  • White Label App: Easily create your own branded app using Audiri’s white label functionality. Set yourself apart from other schools, improve interactions and downloads from the community, all without the complications, cost, and effort of producing your own branded app.


At Audiri, we’re committed to listening to the market and being at the forefront of innovation. We recognize that the education landscape is constantly changing, and we want to ensure that our app remains relevant and useful for our users. Overall, we believe that our rebranding is a reflection of our dedication to providing the best possible product for our users—and ultimately enabling you to be heard within your community. We’re excited to continue to innovate and improve, and we’re grateful for the support of our users along the way.
