SMS for Rostering

Need to better co-ordinate your staff?

SMS has become the most direct and reliable form of communication for businesses no matter which industry you are in. Using SMS for rostering not only saves you time and money but almost ensures an immediate response. Unlike email which is 20%, SMS open rate is 99% with 98% being open within the first 3 minutes of being received.
