PikMyKid Reviews Recently Reviewed!


We've been using PikMyKid for two years now. It has reduced our dismissal time.

Pros: The customer service and support are amazing. They respond quickly and are extremely helpful in fixing any problems/issues we have. It is user friendly for administrators. It does reduce our dismissal time. When used correctly by parents, it can help ensure their child's safety.

Cons: Unless everyone uses the system properly, it's not 100% effective. Every single parent has to use the application and use it properly otherwise there are problems at dismissal. Because of this, it never works perfectly. One big problem for our school, that really needs to be fixed, is that even if parents delegate their children, if the parent goes through car line and announces, their child will be announced even though they have been delegated to someone else. This is a problem for parents who delegate one child, but pick up another child themselves. If they go through the car line before the delegated person does, then both children, even the delegated child, will be announced. This is a huge problem for our school. Also, on the dashboard for admins, it would be nice to be able to sort the list of students by the columns available. If we could sort that list alphabetically by last name, it would be very helpful.

My experience has been good overall.

Pros: The Pikmykid software is relatively easy to use for everyone. The login process is very easy for users.

Cons: The software seems a little "glitchy" at times for parents and school users.

There is no real "ALERT" feature that I am aware of at this time (to my knowledge). I would like to see the software offer some sort of ALERT feature that allows administrators to add-in for personnel NOT authorized to pick-up a child; the feature should be able to upload a photo when available; If the UNAUTHORIZED person attempts to pick-up the child, the person using Pikmykid could press a button/icon on the phone that would alert the teacher of the student and other designated personnel that he/she is onsite and the other parent or authorized guardian and the authorities should be called.

If the incorrect student number is put in the system, it is usually easy to remove student by pressing the "x", but some times, the software only allows for the student to go into the "HOLD" section.

Overall: One of the benefits is that we are able to use a three digit numerical system to process our students in and out of school, making it easier and more efficient for parents and users at the school.

PikMyKid has gotten much better and easier to use over time

Pros: It's very comprehensive. If all stakeholders are on board and using it appropriately, it's possible to know the dismissal plans/whereabouts of each and every student within about 7 seconds.

Cons: There are a lot of small things that make PMK less user-friendly than we would like. You have to take absent students out of the system one-by-one, you need to log out and in each day in order to have updated dismissal plans (some teachers have a hard time with this), and it took a long time to get enough buy-in with all of our stakeholders for it to truly be effective.

Works Great!

Pros: The software does exactly what it says it will. I can use this software with confidence that everything will just work. Notifications are huge for us! Parents are now consistently kept in the loop.

Cons: I wish the parents could have a web portal as well instead of forcing them to use an app. Also, you need to make sure you have good wifi outside for checking parents in. Once that is done, you are all set!

Overall: Peace of mind. We now know exactly where our students are. Communication is better, and interrupting the classroom with change of dismissal for individual students is a thing of the past.

PMK has really helped streamline our dismissal process!

Pros: I love that it is so easy to use. The customer service is amazing as well. Our rep is always there in a pinch to walk us through an issue.

Cons: There are too many ways to run reports. This should be a positive thing, but I find it difficult to know which report to have our teachers use. It is also confusing to distinguish between a delegation and a change mode. Parents use both.

Very helpful and useful program that is easy to use and understand

Pros: It allows us ways to advise parents a quick update on events that happen - such as bus delays and/or school closings

Cons: When editing a phone number or changing transportation need to go back to start - more difficult when it's a family etc.

Overall: Quick way to change transportation and advise teachers

Has added safety and efficiency along with a level of accountability to our dismissal process.

Pros: Accountability of every student so we know each student has been dismissed and the route they have taken. Parents can update dismissal information and the dismissal process is faster with the ability to announce and send parents through the car line. We can also track students who participate in clubs after school.

Cons: Inability to announce for after school programs and difficulties if parents do not participate and cooperate.

The customer support and response to concerns has been phenomenal

Pros: Pik My Kid is very user friendly and our community relies on it to make our dismissal more efficient and safe. Our neighbors are happy as well, because we are able to move cars through quicker.

Cons: Occasionally after an upgrade there are some issues with needing a patch, but most upgrades have actually been for useful purposes.

Overall: We were able to put together a safe and efficient dismissal to keep our families and neighbors happy

We really like PikMyKid

Pros: The easy use of the app, the parents understand how to use the app, our teachers understand how to use the app, its very user friendly

Cons: There are cliches at the worst times but I don't think there is much we can do about that, if the user has an old version it doesn't work, communicate sooner when a new version is approaching

Pros: The software is relatively easy to use and very reliable. It's helped increase the safety and security of our K-5 dismissal procedures.

Cons: Some parts of it can be a bit inflexible. Some updates in the past have caused issues; however, they were always quick to communicate workarounds and fixes.

Overall: Our dismissal procedures are MUCH safer and can be audited! Things are much more streamlined while simultaneously increasing safety.

Pros: I like that I can manage all parents and students in the school and monitor how they will be picked up each day.

Cons: I dislike the notifications you can send because they do not always work correctly and you cannot see them in the system.

Pros: We loved how we knew how each kidddo was going home each day and the accountability was on the parents to get us the right information in a timely manner and in a consistent way.

Cons: The confusion of the way things were labeled made a bit of a mess at dismissal time as well as the problems we had with the app.

I enjoy using Pikmykid. The parents loves it as well.

Pros: I love how we can send messages and the dismissal is easy also. I feel like it helps with communications between teachers and parents. The school message board is great.

Cons: The one thing i least like is when it sends the messages it sends it 4 times. I also wish that the parents had to opinion to respone to the messages that we send out. Some of our parents work and may not be able to call. But they may be able to texts us back.
