John Morris is the founder and owner of morriscode, a leading Prince Edward Island web design & development firm that works with organizations to take advantage of multiple forms of technology and enhance their efficiency through online initiatives.
Occasionally John likes to share thoughts and opinions on his blog. When not working on web design, web development, social media strategies or building new websites, this entrepreneur can be found adventuring through PEI's backwoods capturing the beauty of our province.
Earlier this year, the PEI Rocket came to me looking for a easy way to communicate with their players and billets. In the event that the Rocket wanted to extend their players curfew, they needed an easy way to send a message to all the players and the billets so they are aware of the new curfew.
Another scenario was that if the team wanted to cancel a practice for what ever reason, it involved calling the 20 players up to notify them of the cancellation.
Enter TypeTexter. The Rocket management could login to TypeTexter and send a mass text message to anyone who is within their groups. They could create their own custom groups and add, modify or delete who is in them through a secure system.
TypeTexter is an easy way to send a message out to users really quickly.
With the API, you can have people sign up for specific groups via your website. Then, if your company has a slow day and needs a quick way to send a message to your customers such as, "Golf today for 20% off!", this makes it quick and easy.
Now when people think of text messaging, they think cell phones. But now-a-days, you can also send and receive text messages via landline. As such, this feature will also work on normal landline phones.
