Delivering school notifications to parents via SMS messaging has become an important part of school administration.
The most common types of SMS notification are;
Student missing from school
School upcoming events
Emergency school closures
For school principals like Matthew, selecting an SMS provider has been a decision between Standard Bulk SMS Providers or Customised School SMS Software.
Each option contains significant Pro’s and Con’s thus causing a decision dilemma for schools.
Bulk SMS Providers typically provide low cost SMS, but have a standardised software platform to cover all businesses.
Custom School Software provides specific features for schools administration, but locks the school into purchasing high cost SMS.
The engineers from Sendmode have been working closely with over 100 different schools to address this dilemma.
Today we are delighted to introduce our new School Text Module onto our Multi-Award Winning Platform.
Schools can now get the best of both worlds, customised SMS software specifically for schools,
while still benefitting from the same low cost SMS rates available to Sendmode’s Bulk SMS customers.
We have also included some really cool, easy to use features to simplify daily administration tasks.
