ConnectUs – going the extra mile

Mick Empson, managing director of ConnectUs

ConnectUs Managing Director, Mick Empson, spotted the opportunity emerging technologies could play in improving parental communications.

Mick understood that simplicity was key to success, not just for parents, but also for busy school staff.

Even though ConnectUs now has over 650 customers, Mick still delights in visiting schools and working directly with the company’s customers. It’s a personal approach which pervades the culture of the business.

The ConnectUs team always ‘go the extra mile’, which is evidenced by our excellent customer reviews.
