Help members of the public interact with government organizations by streamlining and simplifying communication via SMS messaging. Reject the old-fashioned view that government agencies are hard to reach. Instead send personalized text messages right to the people who matter most: your community.
Current estimates show that individuals spend an average of four hours a day on their mobile phones. Use SMS to reach the public directly on these devices. Distribute important messages and get near instant replies with the power of Textline’s government text messaging solution. Our SMS solution is managed from one central dashboard, making it simple to streamline communication and reach the community with personalized messages and alerts.
From issuing emergency notifications to increasing operational efficiency in public sector teams, government SMS can help improve communication.
When there’s an emergency or crisis situation, the public needs to know immediately. But the reality is not everyone is online, and not everyone has the TV on to hear the news. This issue is exacerbated when WiFi or internet signals are cut off. When these emergencies happen, how can governments ensure critical messages are delivered and seen? The answer is simple: use an SMS message.
Deliver critical messages directly to peoples’ mobile devices. Statistics show 97 percent of Americans own a mobile phone, and SMS is designed to reach them all. Make sure important messages are delivered in an emergency by using a text messaging solution.
It’s not just the public you can reach via SMS messaging. You can implement an SMS solution to improve staff communication. For example, you can use it to share important announcements, dispatch employees, or streamline the recruitment process. Textline’s government texting solution puts all communication into one central dashboard, making it easy for your team to communicate with one another whether they’re in the office or out in the community.
Schedule your messages ahead of time, set out-of-office auto-replies, or create text templates to improve reply speed. With automated SMS, you can save time and improve customer service since the right message is being sent at the best time.
Looking for volunteers? Use SMS to help you solicit volunteers. Let them know about upcoming events, how they can get involved, and thank them post-event.
While the public likes to be informed when they’re dealing with government bodies, they’re often left in the dark. Send status updates on permits, applications, renewals, and more via SMS to keep constituents in the know. You could also use SMS to send or schedule important reminders to ensure documentation is submitted on time. You can also use it to share important reminders with the public.
