Every feature especially crafted to meet your communication needs.


We have features that are common across all organizations and others that are customized to address the needs of specific organizations. For example, 'Sematime for schools' lets schools send exam results and fee balances to parents while 'Sematime for churches' lets churches serve daily bible quotes and verses to congregants.

Need to send 1,000 messages? No problem. We will have them sent in seconds and then provide you with detailed delivery reports showing who did and who didn't receive your message.

What's more? You can even download and print the reports.

Organization specific features.


At Sematime we understand that different organisations have different communication needs. It is for this reason that we have built customized versions of Sematime for small businesses, schools, utility companies & churches.

Send exam results & fee balances via SMS

Students can be naughty; you issue them with report cards to take home to their parents but some fail to do it. Sematime makes it really easy for schools to send exam results to parents - all you need is your class merit list in form of an Excel file.

For students with fee arrears, you can use Sematime to send payment notifications and reminders to parents.
