How to use SMS Notifications and Alerts for Employees
SMS, or short message service texts, can be a useful way to communicate with employees, especially in situations where other communication methods may not be available or practical. Some potential uses for SMS texts in the workplace include:
- Sending important updates or announcements: SMS texts can be a quick and easy way to get important information to employees, especially if they are not in the office or if you need to reach them outside of normal business hours.
- Providing real-time updates: SMS texts can be used to provide employees with updates on IT outages, company updates, events, weather or office closures or other work-related information in real-time.
- You can SMS for sending videos or polls, too.
- Providing emergency notifications: In the event of an emergency, SMS texts can be used to quickly notify employees and provide them with important information or instructions.
It’s important to note that SMS texts should not be used for sensitive or confidential information, as they are not a secure form of communication. Additionally, it’s important to respect employees’ privacy and not send excessive or unnecessary texts.
