A new service for the childcare market, Callmy, will be launched at Childcare Expo 2015, London Olympia.
Unexpected events can take many forms, from bad weather to power cuts. These unplanned events can force a nursery to close and put an added burden on communication.
While a Nursery’s priority is the welfare of the children, relying on local radio, SMS or email to inform parents and carers of the situation can be time consuming and ineffective.
Callmy is a voice service that helps control a crisis. By simply making one phone call the nursery can simultaneously broadcast vital information to all parents and carers so everyone is immediately informed – this can also include extended family, friends and neighbours.
Tony Watson, Founder and CEO of Callmy commented, “we’ve developed Callmy to provide Nurseries with a cost effective and simple to use messaging service, which stands apart from SMS, email and Twitter”. It’s of great use during a crisis and will also open a more personal line of communication with parents and carers; which may be a significant business asset too”.
The service has been developed based on the Company’s many years of experience working with the Emergency Services and Civil Contingency planners.
Callmy are launching the service at this years Childcare Expo with a special show offer of £10 per month.
Callmy also hope that visitors to Childcare Expo will help to raise money for War Child – War Child UK is a specialist child protection charity working with children whose lives have been devastated by conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Syria, Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo. For every person who downloads the free Callmy app and visits the Callmy stand (D60) Callmy will donate £1 to War Child.
We may be accused of being slightly biased but we find it very curious that when it comes to communicating, we choose to ignore the most powerful and effective medium we have at our disposal – voice. It would appear we’ve forgotten how to speak to each other.

Our objective to develop a cloud based platform to support the delivery of the Callmy Voice Notification Service, has now been achieved. We have also developed user access via iOS, Android and Windows apps. These are in the store and ready to download here.
We believe Callmy is the most cost effective Mass Notification service on the market today. It offers a simple solution with the capacity to significantly reduce the management overheads, normally associated with notification systems. It wall also provide a valuable business continuity asset for customers deployed services.
