Life is unpredictable.
Sometimes life throws a spanner in the works, and things go awry. Inclement weather might dictate that an event be rescheduled or cancelled at the last minute; a technical fault may affect an essential service; traffic issues might mean your child’s school excursion bus is running very late. There might be a last minute change to a staff roster. A natural disaster or public disturbance may impact on transport or other public services in your city. In any event, people need to know – right now.
The perfect way to alert people to circumstantial changes instantly is via an SMS Notification System.
