BRANDED SMS

Send text messages with the name of your school as opposed to a number. For example, if your organisation is called, ABC Boys High School, then all your text messages will be sent with ABC_BOYS as the sender identifier.

GROUP BASED CONTACTS

Our contacts manager lets you import contacts from an Excel file and then organizes them into groups. For example, you could have Form 4 2016, Form 3S 2016, Alumni etc.

MESSAGE SCHEDULING

When you send a message, Sematime allows you to specify the date and time when the message should be sent. We’ll store the message for you and then have it sent automatically.

INSTANT DELIVERY

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.
