Pia, The Virtaul Assistant that keep Families On Task
The beginning of a new school year is upon us, and as much as we try to prepare our kids to have the best first day, we also need to get back into what can be a chaotic transition for us as parents.
But I am here to say it does not have to be, we can make the new school year a smooth transition for everyone in the family, here’s how.
I’ve mentioned before how I began using Picniic, the personal assistant specifically created for the entire family, and how my husband and I are much more in sync with both high and low priority items on our to do list. Well, the creators of Picniic just took things up a notch and have introduced Pia. The very first smart and interactive support for families.
What does that mean? Well, Pia is a feature that helps families build a deeper connection with Picniic by learning about family needs and making insightful recommendations on how to stay on top of things.
Pia, which lives within Picniic, prompts family members to keep Picniic updated throughout the day in a fun, conversational way. Pia learns your habits and will anticipate your needs over time. Pia will search your calendar for your family’s next free weekend and will offer recommendations. Pia will check the weather before you go, so you avoid any unexpected weather incidents. Pia will even help you take on the stress of back-to-school by reaching out with a checklist of important tasks that need to happen before the first day of school.
In many households, family information is rarely kept in one place, resulting in a family that isn’t always on the same on the same page. Picniic’s family assistant fixes this problem, and with the addition of Pia provides an extra level of support helping everyone operate as one.
I feel like a lot of the organizational tools available aren’t built with families in mind. I like that both Picniic and Pia were designed to be proactive in wanting households to be less stressful, more organized and connected.
Picniic is available to download for free at www.picniic.com, the App Store and Google Play. Premium features, including a meal planner, encrypted info locker, family locator, and more, are available with an annual subscription for the whole family at $49.99 or a pay-as-you-go monthly fee of $14.99.
