SMS Text Messaging for Any Audience

In an emergency, every second counts. (SMS) Short-code messaging is the quickest and easiest way to connect with your audience. It allows you to reach people simultaneously, increasing the likelihood that your message will be received and responded to quickly.

According to Brough Turner, a communications engineer, text messages consume fewer network resources than voice calls or video chats, making them more likely to be delivered during heavy network congestion. This reliability ensures that you reach your intended recipients, even during an emergency.
