What is Bloomz?
An easy to use, secure app that connects parents, teachers, administrators, and schools to build stronger communities.
How does one more social network improve my life?
Parents will agree that it takes a village to raise a child. As our lives get busier and more complicated, with the many tasks involved in managing a household, maintaining jobs, keeping a cautious eye on our children and their acquaintances, it is clear that there is a need for a social network focused only on connecting all the important people in a child’s world and allowing them to collaborate easier. Our mission is to create engaged communities across schools, activities and learning centers that are dedicated to helping children succeed.
How does Bloomz help parents?
Bloomz helps parents solve the “Parenting Puzzle” of piecing together the various challenges of running a household, helping with homework, facilitating parent-teacher communication, engaging in child’s extra-curricular activities, organizing carpool, volunteering with the PTA, all the while finding time to simply enjoy the parenthood journey. It is a one-stop shop for connectivity and productivity for everything related to children.
Is the Bloomz Network safe?
Absolutely! Bloomz provides a safe and trusted path for Teachers, Parents and PTA leaders to share information with their members.
Here's how we keep you safe:
- Every member joins the network by invitation or by verification only.
- Each member signs in with their real name. Just like in person.
- Your Bloomz app is securely encrypted using the HTTPS Internet protocol.
- Information shared will never show up in Google or other search engines.
- Bloomz never shares your personal information with third-party advertisers.
What mobile devices does Bloomz support?
You can access Bloomz from a smartphone or a tablet. The Bloomz app is currently available for iPhone and some Android phones and Windows phone. We will expand Android support to most phones by the end of August.
Does Bloomz work on desktop browsers too?
Absolutely! Just go to www.bloomz.net and you are ready to go!
Do we need a dedicated volunteer to manage Bloomz?
We have designed Bloomz to be a great tool for you as VP of communications. Bloomz offers you simple self-servicing tools, and does not require a volunteer to manage Bloomz.
At this time, we would say the initial effort is about 1-2 hours and after that you will see the community starting to build and thrive on its own. Our hope is that you will use Bloomz to communicate in the very same manner you currently communicate now, except that we have integrated your needs (requesting volunteers, sharing events and updates, putting together flyers, providing email templates, etc) into one easy to use app. Bloomz is designed to replace emails, flyers, newsletters, and invitations to events into one clutter-free working environment.
Can kids get into a Bloomz network?
Bloomz is currently NOT intended for kids. It is a parental network connecting parents, teachers and other educators.
What else is on the roadmap for Bloomz?
Bloomz is on a rapid innovation curve to build the world's safest and simplest app to help every parent engage in their child's life. We have plans to integrate with other tools (such as LMS) so we can provide teacher-student interactions (with parents' keeping a cautious eye on the interaction between child and teacher). However our members are our future, and we are always looking for suggestions from you. Please contact us and tell us how we can make Bloomz a better experience for you! Click Here to offer feedback.
