SMS for local government
Save time and improve communication with local residents with SMS
Local authorities often need to get important information to residents quickly. With SMS having an average open rate of 95% and response time of 90 seconds, it is incredibly effective at getting key information delivered fast.
Local authorities will have times when they need to urgently contact local residents. For example, if there is a severe weather warning or emergency disruption to services. Contacting each resident individually can be time consuming and expensive.
Bulk SMS allows for instant communications to be sent to the residents who may be affected by the emergency announcement. Contacts can be segmented into different groups to ensure the message is going to the right people.
SMS surveys are a great way to gain feedback from local residents.
Our multi-route SMS surveys allow for different questions to be sent to the user based on their response. This allows for a more tailored approach to feedback gathering and can provide a wider, more in depth range of results.
Local election reminders
Local councils can schedule SMS messages to be sent to residents on the days leading up to the elections. These reminders may increase voter turnout.
