Forward thinking governments, are beginning to realise that SMS can be used to help increase participation in their own local elections, as well as improve existing services, or even create new ones.
As a local government, imagine being able to easily provide traffic updates in your area or send an alert when it is time pay taxes or renewal of a licence, direct to your customer's mobile phone. These are just two services you would be able to provide if you chose to implement an SMS messaging solution in your area.
The list of possibilities is numerous:
* Flood warnings
* Traffic Bulletins
* Travel Alerts
* Health Alerts
* Tax reminders
* Campaign Notifications
* Notifications of Planning Applications
* Terrorist Alerts, and more...
SMS messaging also offers an accessible and cost effective facility for the general public to communicate with the government bodies. You could have the ability to offer a service where people can request information through a text message, such as allowing people to ‘text in’ and alert the respective local government body to such things as road damage.
SMStoAlert understand that you need to serve your communities and that you need to be thorough, economical and efficient in the services you provide.
SMStoAlert can go some way to helping you achieve these goals. How many people do you need to reach? How urgently and how much time and money does it cost to achieve this? Would automation allow you to improve your service and reduce your costs? Do you need to communicate unique information to each customer or standard information to all of them? Would you like to give them an alternative way to communicate with you?
SMStoAlert has been helping organizations in the public sector address these questions by successfully delivering alternative communications solutions. Why not apply our technology to your organisation?
SMStoAlerts web based application has been developed specifically to allow organisations to manage and control the use distribution and effectiveness of text messaging themselves.
Using our unique hierarchy control systems your organisation can manage which members of staff can do what with texting from their computer at their desks, or home.
Your organisation can manage its own account, its own data and its own text campaigns, safe in the knowledge that all this is provided with the best routing the best software and the best security. With extensive reporting, a full message audit trail and usage warnings you the customer, have total control.
Every educational establishment is looking to maximise budgets and find more time and cost efficient ways to communicate with parents, students and also internally with its own staff. An increasing number of schools, colleges and universities are implementing a text solution to address these issues and are finding that the text message has become a more useful communication tool than first thought.
A text is a cheaper and more effective way of communicating with parents when compared to a telephone call or letter. If for example, a school wishes to advise of pupil non-attendance or confirm receipt of an official letter, a single message can be sent to multiple parents and all replies directed back to the SMStoAlert inbox from which pupil records can be updated. Notifying parents of any school trips or events would also take only a matter of seconds to undertake.
Ensuring students attend seminars or tutorials are vital not only to their educational progress but to also prevent a tutor turning up to an empty classroom, wasting valuable time. Similarly, helping students meet deadline dates for essays or coursework allows a tutor to maintain and manage his/her teaching schedule. Sending a text message is a great way of notifying students of any changes to tutorials or seminars or to serve as reminder that a piece of work is due by a particular time and date. In a campus environment the safety of students could be enhanced by using SMStoAlert's Group forwarding feature. A student identifying a security breach that could potentially endanger fellow students can send a text into the SMStoAlert application that is instantly dispersed to fellow students on campus warning of the security breach.
As well as proving a great means by which to keep staff informed of any important, time critical information, texting also perfect for the recruitment of supply staff required for short notice cover. A message can be sent to a bank of supply staff and replies can come back to the system inbox indicating availability. Once the appropriate number of vacancies haven been filled, a message can be automatically triggered by the system to advise the unsuccessful applicants that they are not required on this occasion.
Probably the biggest headache for any recruitment agency is ensuring vacancies are fulfilled on time. Contacting potential candidates can often be a frustrating, expensive and time consuming experience.
Imagine you have just taken a booking where you have promised to provide 20 quality candidates by next week. Normally this would involve making 20+ separate telephone calls (often expensive landline to mobile calls) whilst you attempt to fill each position. Could there be an easier way?
By utilising the SMStoAlerts SMS service you could text the relevant jobs details to all of your registered job seekers within minutes of the booking becoming available, saving crucial time and costly phone calls. Job seekers who receive this text message can then instantly reply via text and either accept or decline the work.
