SMS (Short Message Service)
SMS’s are easy to use and get better attention than emails but still SMS’s have several limitations for schools. Having to phrase the message within 160 characters (and as few as 70 In Arabic) hinders the ability to mention important details in your message. SMS’s are also costly. Having to send an average of 2-3 messages daily to thousands of parents with the current rates would probably cost you a fortune. SchoolVoice gives you the ability to send unlimited messages with unlimited characters. It can also accommodate SMS functions upon request (Terms and conditions apply)
