The global security situation is dynamic and difficult to assess at the moment. In Switzerland we are also affected by it: Will there be a blackout this winter – if our power grid can no longer withstand the strain? No one knows what could happen. That is why it is all the more important to be well prepared for critical events or emergencies

Our solution helps you to reach your customers quickly and efficiently with important information via SMS messages on their mobile phones. For example, in the event of electricity shortages, tips on how to reduce electricity in the household or upcoming power cuts.

This is how the emergency subscription service for sending SMS notifications works

Your customers, target groups and members independently subscribe and unsubscribe to your information service by SMS using a keyword. You can then send all registered subscribers information by SMS either directly or on a scheduled basis. You have an overview at all times because you can operate your SMS services online yourself.

What is a notification SMS

A text message for notification is very similar to an alert, as the content must always contain important information. Commercial offers such as promotions, events or similar have no place in a notification SMS. But, for example, messages about technical faults that are automatically sent to technicians or a power failure, a weather alarm, road traffic disruptions and important appointment reminders – as well as the sending of security codes as OTPs(one-time passwords), mTANs for 2-factor authentication, payment confirmations, etc.
