Neoris Selects VoiceGenie for Truancy Alert Management System in Educational Sector
TORONTO - Neoris selects VoiceGenie Technology's VoiceXML 2.0-certified platform, NeXusPoint, for Neoris' speech-driven truancy alert management application deployed at the Forth Worth Independent School District (FWISD) in Texas.
Neoris partnered with FWISD to reduce the district's truancy rate and implement a district-wide communication messaging strategy. In addition to preventing students from skipping school and potentially dropping out or contributing to urban crime, keeping students in the classroom represents a significant financial opportunity for the FWISD. The State of Texas appropriates funding to each school district based on the number of students in class each day during the regular school year; therefore, every truant student costs the FWISD $15 per day.
Neoris' ActiveSuite Alert Manager solution, deployed on VoiceGenie's NeXusPoint platform, notifies parents and guardians as well as law enforcement authorities when a student is truant from school and provides a confirmation when the intended recipient receives a message.
