The best way to notify your customers, staff, constituents or other mass groups is through the power of text messaging. These days, about 65% of the population uses text messaging. Mobile phones are personal devices that most people are always checking to see what is going on in their environment.
EZ Texting allows you to send mass messages within minutes meaning you can notify several members of your contact groups all at once.
EZ Features that Can Be Used to Notify or Alert Contacts
EZ Texting is operated on a web browser, but sometimes you may not always have access to the internet right away. Plug your phone number into this feature so that you can send mass messages directly to a contact group in your account just from your phone using a keyword on the account.
SMS or standard text messages tend to have a faster send rate than MMS (multimedia messages). These messages contain 160 characters or less which allows them to typically send faster and also to any mobile devices that may not be up to date. Generally, you will want to choose this option in case of emergencies. Emergencies must be taken seriously. While texting is a great source to use to send alerts, we recommend using this as one additional option to another in case your contacts have any networking issues that could potentially delay your message. However, EZ Texting is a great back up option that can be used to alert your contacts if there is an issue occurring.
Sometimes you may want to notify your customers or patients about upcoming appointments. This tool can be used to send out these types of notifications automatically so you won't have to go through each individual contact one by one on an excel sheet.
