Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Kotobee Author reviews

Overall, so far it is a great solution for my company's goals.

- Law C. CEO

Overall, Kotobee Author is an interactive ebook appropriate for my blended class specifically for reference use as well. It only needs to be downloaded so that means offline access is possible with fewer exceptions if you have URL links embedded.

- Amor B. Teacher

The software could have built in application so that it will be easier to navigate and create materials most especially for teachers.

ParentLocker reviews

The admissions process and parent access to information has been so much more efficient with Parent locker. Data about the school is at our fingertips which has made everything more efficient. We looked at many different database solutions for schools - most of them sky-high expensive, complicated and not affordable for our small school - and we found Parent Locker to be the most easy to use and meeting our needs.

- Philippa L. Admissions Director

Easy to use, downloadable app to your phone, nice looking mass emails

- Elianna B. Program Director

Does not have at this time an APP that works well on phones. Requires running on browser for most functions. This is a downside when trying to quickly look something up when away from the computer.

Pros & cons

Kotobee Author

I should say I am very pleased with the overall experience
The interactive e-books can be shared with your students and can make evaluation of their progress very easy
Good and like it, Let's increase the challenge to be able to promote Kotobee
Over all I love and I enjoy using it
Its very helpful especially now, most of the schooling type is through online
I like the features and functionalities of the said software and I like the designing of the page of the ebook whether it is fixed or reflowable."

Customization options for user interface are nearly none
Learning curve can be, in beginning, slightly problematic
The fact that the drag n drop feature does not support you comparing two or more pictures together
The only problem I encountered with kotobee author is that some of its feature need internet connection for you to add some content and the problem is I got a poor internet connection
Initially frustrating (when I first shifted from iBooks Author) but now I am settling in and producing books routinely."


Wonderful support and they have been so helpful during our distance teaching
They have been responsive to our needs to adapt the program
It's been really great to work with the ParentLocker team
They've been extremely responsive to questions and understand how customers are using the software so they can easily update and improve
We are thrilled with the ParentLocker experience this year
It has so many features that are school and parent friendly
The PL team is always responsive tour needs and suggestions."

But in truth I haven't used the customer service, so its annoying that you make me answer
Put in a not applicable button
Also, setting up forms for families to fill out, so the information flows into the database, can be a little difficult
There are some redundant features that can be a little confusing for the user
The few features that we felt were missing have either already been added or are being rolled out this year."
