Blackbaud has developed a single sign-on (SSO) integration between its Podium platform and pickAtime, a popular virtual appointment setter. The integration streamlines parent-teacher conference scheduling for Blackbaud schools.
PickAtime is an online appointment service that allows schools and universities to publish available time slots on their Web page so that parents and students are able to schedule appointments over the Internet.
PickAtime offers a Parent Teacher Conference Scheduler for schools that set aside time periodically throughout the school year when parents come to the school to meet with their children’s teachers. It allows schools to easily publish the available time slots of teachers on their Web site. Parents can then login in at their convenience, view teacher availability and book appointments. Teachers and School Administrators are able to monitor the schedules in real time.
PickAtime also offers an Online Scheduler that is used by schools for scheduling both ongoing and one time events such as Guidance Counselor appointments, Senior Portfolio Meetings, Parents’ Weekend, School Tours, Summer School registration, Drivers Ed registration, and Volunteer registration.
PickAtime has been in business since 2001 and is used by schools throughout the United States and Canada.
