SMS in universities is the quickest and most convenient way to keep in touch with students and staff

Universities benefit a lot from text messages when used to communicate with students and staff. You can cut costs whilst increasing the communication efficiency. Every department in the university has different needs which then gives a diverse range of opportunities for text message use. For example a finance department can remind a student on their tuition/accommodation arrears, and a library can inform a student on book loan deadlines. There are many other important notifications that students and staff can benefit from if they got the alerts/notifications almost immediately.
