HEAR WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY


"PickATime is simply by far the easiest, most affordable, and always reliable system for scheduling events. We use the system for parentsí conferences. Our school sends a set-up file to pickAtime; they send us a link, which in turn we publish in our Parents portal. Once published, parents quickly log in and we have 85% of the schedule completed in 10 minutes. No hassles, no problems.

Recommend pickAtime for your school."

"Shore Country Day School will celebrate 10 years of pickAtime next year! We first implemented pickAtime for Shore's Parent Conferences in the Winter of 2007. At that time, online signups were a big change for our school. No longer did we post sign-up sheets requiring parents to come into school and compete elbow to elbow for their desired slots! Now, when we open each conference event, parents access the authenticated pickAtime link through our website and we typically see almost half our conference slots fill up within the first hour...all behind the scenes! Parents love being able to schedule appointments from work or when on the go using their smartphone or tablet. Managing optional conference childcare sign-ups and changes to appointments provide even more conveniences for parents as well as streamlining the administrative processes for our staff. Our faculty also rely on easy access to their schedules as they plan for conferences. We have always found pickAtime Support to be exceptionally responsive for any set-up questions or issues. Once a year, when we host a whole school event that requires volunteer sign-up, there is never a charge for this service which we truly appreciate."

Director of Technology at Shore Country Day School



"We LOVE pick-a-time!

Being a small school requires our teachers to wear many hats, and do varied tasks which is why we were thrilled to discover how convenient and easy to use Pick-a-Time really is. The service has simplified our onerous scheduling challenges and put our families in the driver's seat, allowing them the freedom to choose times that work best for them. Lastly, it is wonderfully cost effective - saving us time and frustration."
