If your business involves appointments with clients, you know how much it can throw off your schedule if someone forgets or arrives late. InformaCast Mobile can help.
Listen to this podcast to learn about InformaCast Mobile for sending SMS text messages with confirmation
Hello. I'm Brad Parkel with Singlewire Software.
Today, we're talking with Tim Green, vice president of software development, about the upcoming release of InformaCast Mobile.
So the biggest thing that's new with InformaCast Mobile is we have added the ability to send an InformaCast Mobile broadcast as an SMS message.
Now, the reason we did that is the InformaCast Mobile today encompasses an iOS and an Android application. So if everybody that you want to reach on a mobile device has either an iPhone or an iPad or an Android phone or an Android tablet, they can have the InformaCast mobile application on that device.
And you could push text, audio, and pictures to them. And oh, by the way, you can also solicit a response back from them. If, however, you've got people in this community of people that you want to reach that don't have an iOS or Android device, you can't get a message to them with InformaCast Mobile.
So we heard this feedback loud and clear from our customers. And we decided the best way to meet that requirement was to add SMS capability.
CIO Review Magazine, an industry-leading technology publication, recently featured Singlewire in their article, "Singlewire Software: Network-Centric Mass Notifications for Emergency Communications."
The article explores InformaCast's extensive communication capabilities as well as its exciting position in the forefront of the 'Internet of Things' movement.
SHS Staff Gets Crash Course in Safety Protocols
There are new procedures and protocols being implemented in the Sunnyside schools to keep students safe in a threatening situation.
That’s according to Safety and Security Coordinator Salliejo Evers, who conducted the first staff training at Sunnyside High School yesterday.
She said staff is familiar with lockdown procedures, but there are now lockout and active shooter procedures being implemented in the schools, as well.
“What we had in the past was a generic lockdown procedure,” said Assistant Principal Wally Shearer.
He said yesterday’s meeting emphasized procedures for different “what if” scenarios.
“I hope to god we never have to do it (implement active shooter procedures),” said Shearer.
Evers said lockout procedures would be used in a scenario where the threat or an incident occurs outside the school buildings.
