Say ‘Hello’ to Hero…
LINC-ED is still going to be our parent company name. However, our flagship online sharing, reporting and billing platform is going to be known as ‘Hero’.
…and Kia Ora to mobile!
We’ve been listening to your feedback, and one of the big changes on its way is a new mobile app with in-app notifications, which will be downloadable from the app stores (Google Play and Apple App Store).
As well as a suite of product options.
This is also as a result of user feedback. We have created the Hero Suite of products. Giving schools the option to add functionality depending on their needs and budget.
Super Hero - This app is our core product. All the portfolio posting and sharing functionality you know and love in a platform that is simple, secure and smart.
Hero Duo - Schools can add this robust online, real-time reporting tool to share and track student’s progress across the curriculum. Flexible and customisable, it caters to your school’s individual needs.
Hero Suite - Helping you to fulfil the New Zealand Ministry of Education’s student management requirements. Includes the pupil billing features that are the easiest way to manage financial transactions between parents and school. Turn this feature on, at no extra cost to you with online payments activated, to access great billing features and with zero pressure for parents to use it either - it is merely there to provide them (and you) with choice.
Coming in 2020
Hero Premier - Adding extra functionality to our app including the school calendar, absence notifications and integrated permission slips.
Hero has been designed with the same style and functionality that our LINC-ED users know and love. The user interface has a similar look and feel. Rather than making radical changes, we have merely made enhancements which have been in response to user feedback to provide schools with even more choice.
The most significant upgrade is Hero’s mobile app, with in-app notifications providing an enhanced experience for parents and caregivers. This has been the single most requested feature and we have delivered.
