Other Express Message Service Features and Benefits
Specifically designed for small and midsize communities, our Express Message Service enables unlimited use instead of pay-per-use. Your rates remain fixed regardless of how often you use the service. Additionally, there are no long-term commitments. The user-friendly Web portal widget allows residents or list members to sign up with ease.
When the borough’s new automated calling system was used to inform residents that a snow emergency had been declared, the results were outstanding. “It seemed to work rather well…… it was by far the best response we’ve ever had for a snow emergency.”
Example of a Practical Express Message Service Application
Here’s one of many examples in which our Express Message Service can benefit a municipality. Suppose you’re the mayor of a small borough that’s bracing for a severe winter storm. Our service enables you to provide a timely mass notification by telephone, email or text message to your residents about the need to remove their vehicles from designated snow emergency routes.
This will allow snow plows to keep these streets clear, facilitate the movement of police cars and emergency vehicles and aid in snow removal efforts after the storm passes.
