Use your idle telecom investment to cut costs in half
SmartCall is a patent-pending add-on to SchoolMessenger's hosted service that lets you send non-emergency notifications affordably over your own idle phone lines, while all time-sensitive notifications still route quickly over the massive capacity of the SchoolMessenger hosted network. SmartCall is an evolution in cloud-based notification products, and the first to help you easily control notification costs by using the idle capacity in your existing phone system for non-emergency calls.
Transparent to End Users
There is no software or hardware for the district to configure or maintain because SmartCall is an endpoint in SchoolMessenger's Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud. SchoolMessenger takes care of configuration and maintenance continuously. Users get all features and capabilities of the core SchoolMessenger service and complete assurance of uptime and delivery provided by SchoolMessenger's trusted network.
All Calls Delivered Quickly
School districts using SmartCall are saving an average of 50% off subscription notification fees by affordably routing non-emergency calls over their own phone lines, whether to hundreds of families or tens of thousands of families. And because SmartCall scales from one port to hundreds of ports, even lower- priority calls routed through district phone lines can be delivered quickly. This technology is used today by districts as large as 140,000 students.
The SmartCall Advantage
- Use idle capacity in your existing telecom system to cut your notification costs.
- Maintain high-capacity delivery of time-sensitive messages (weather closures, emergencies) and add affordable delivery of lower-priority messages (absence calls, food service).
- Avoid IT burden (installation, configuration, maintenance) associated with traditional on-premises products.
