Why Should Military Bases Use SMS?

Military bases are busy places. Families move in and out of the base. Servicemembers complete training and streamline military operations. You may even have to store critical equipment and supplies.

You need an efficient and effective way to communicate with servicemembers and their families, whether you want them to attend fun events or need to convey important information. Our SMS solutions simplify communicating with a large group.

Base activities help families get to know one another and foster community. They're also a great way to keep people occupied during slower periods. Because text messages have such a high read rate, your base's residents are more likely to learn about your event ahead of time and make plans to attend.

More Benefits of

Connection Icon SMS for Military Bases

Do more with SMS than sending critical updates and activity reminders. Our SMS solutions help to create a sense of unity on your base while allowing you to explore areas to improve.

Some additional benefits of SMS software include:

  • Increase event attendance: Servicemembers are busy people, and they may forget about an upcoming event on base. Text message reminders help to boost the number of RSVPs and, even more critically, increase attendance. Set up scheduled messages to go out to anyone who’s RSVPd before the event.
  • Share important information: SMS can send essential details to families and servicemembers, such as announcements. SMS also allows you to share policy updates and important changes so everyone stays on the same page.
  • Make the communication process more transparent: If a servicemember has a question or concern, addressing the issue through SMS texts can provide objective documentation. Text messages also eliminate time-consuming steps for busy military members, like playing phone tag and finding the right department to field their inquiry.
