Piota Schools is built upon an app platform created by Multizone for Schappit. The platform supports numerous container apps which load themes specific to the particular organisation that is using the platform. Consequently, hundreds of organisations can have their own branded presence inside the apps.

Piota mobile apps are completely free to download from the App Store and Google Play. These apps are designed to help schools streamline communication, cut costs, save time and aid pupil learning. Hundreds of schools, colleges and education related organisations use these apps to improve communications, engagement and feedback. Piota healthcare apps, based on the same platform, help healthcare organisations engage with their audience of employees, patients, carers and others. Piota was recently acquired.
