Rostering Software to Send Staff SMS

Keep Your Business on Schedule

Use SMS rostering to ensure that employees show up when they’re needed

The Business Case for SMS Rostering

A text message costs just pennies to send, but it can save you thousands in administrative costs and productivity losses.

With SMS rostering you never have to wait for your staff to answer their phones or check their voicemail. They’ll instantly receive your message and see it as soon as they look at their phones. Typically, in less than 3 minutes.

Our customers report that their employees prefer text messages because they’re less intrusive and a lot easier to respond to, whether they’re in a busy store or in the middle of a candlelit dinner. This translates into 2x higher response rates than phone calls, which can make a big difference when you need to fill a last-minute opening, manage schedules for a large workforce, or quickly respond to an emergency or sudden upswing in business.

A Powerful Message, Any Way You Send It

Our online SMS services give you three ways to send text messages to your workforce.

Web SMS provides an easy way to send and receive messages directly from your web browser. Highly capable and cost effective, this online platform gives you flexible delivery options, advanced reporting tools, and multiple customization options.

SMS APIslet you integrate text messaging with your other business systems. This brings a new level of automation—and cost savings—to everything from staff rostering to appointment scheduling. Our APIs allow you to use the languages you know and love to quickly develop robust SMS applications.

Email SMS is a basic SMS platform with a basic price. Use it to quickly send SMS from most email clients, including Outlook and Lotus Notes. Email SMS provides a simple solution for sending single (rather than group) messages when you don’t need the value-added features of Web SMS or our SMS APIs.

The best teams use SMS messaging to keep their rosters full. Get a free, no-commitment consultation from one of our SMS experts and learn how we can help you improve productivity and profitability.
