FastDirect Communications Support Features

Our hands-on approach works! We do not believe in the corporate train the trainer model in which a company trains one staff member who would be responsible for training the rest of the school. We believe that all end users need and benefit from technical support.

Your school site is SSL encrypted and password protected. Data is secured by third party hosting and backed up.

Technological upgrades are continually implemented and monitored by the FastDirect Communications design and program engineers.

We build customized report cards for each grade level, giving your teachers the ability to effectively communicate students’ progress. You provide grade scales and marking codes, then created and applied by us!

Free, on-site training gives administrators and teachers the confidence to hit the ground running with your school site. Ongoing training is available for any staff member at any time.

Exceptional HelpDesk support for all users via our private email system or toll-free number guarantees an expedient response to inquiries. We provide a continuity in service because you can reach the same HelpDesk guru time and time again. You can ask for us by name! Guides, FAQs, video tutorials, and our Monthly Mentions newsletter, ensures success for administrators, teachers, and families.

Our Monthly Mentions newsletter keeps administrators informed of the latest technological upgrades and offers timely advice on when and what school processes to address.

Leave the work to us, we will build your customized system in just one week! This includes complete data conversion, building report cards, grade scales, grade books, and designing a personalized, mobile-friendly login page for your school.

Our HelpDesk provides assistance with the archiving of grades, the promotion of students, and the closing out of the school year. We’ll guide you to a smooth start to the new school year.

All modules of the system are available at one low fee, giving administrators the freedom to choose when and what features to roll out.
