Implement a Simple and Effective Way to Reach Your Employees

Operational SMS is a way to communicate information that helps each employee contribute to company goals. Our operational SMS service will allow your leadership team to mass-distribute customized messages to employees, send critical alerts from machines that have gone offline to supplying codes for the keypad at the delivery gate. Sending information in a timely manner to provide support or direction that helps reinforce your objectives will benefit you and your business.

The operational communication possibilities of SMS are vast:

Maintain an Efficient Line of Internal Communication With Operational SMS 

Your workforce performs at its best when everyone is on the same page. Operational text messaging is a dependable, customizable way to reach your staff on the devices they use daily.

There are many ways operational SMS can benefit your business: 

Communicate efficiently

Operational SMS software enables manual or automated message delivery to entire departments at once using bulk messaging and distribution lists.

Reach your target

SMS messages go directly to employees’ cellphones, increasing open rates and lowering response times — even for remote and deskless workers. 

Clear critical paths

With SMS messages being delivered when alarms are triggered on machinery or IT equipment, you can ensure they are attended to quickly, keeping the overall system workflow running smoothly.

Boost productivity

Employees will receive information critical to their performance in a timely manner. Meeting quotas and deadlines can be communicated even in loud environments.

Improve delivery times

Communicating with everyone in the workflow from line workers to the sales team, delivery drivers to operations managers, will help to alleviate surprises, ensure prompt updates and in the end keep customers happy.

Satisfy customers

Expediting processes with operational SMS will help your business deliver on promises and spend more time with customers.
