SMS text service

We have an SMS service where users can send text messages directly from a computer to a mobile device.

This service allows information to be sent to individuals or groups by managers within Faculties, Schools or administrative divisions.

The benefits of this service include:

  • reduction in postage costs;
  • the publishing of schedule changes;
  • the capability of sending reminders of events, payments, awards, for example, which the targeted individuals may be eligible;
  • an alpha tagging facility whereby messages may be ‘tagged’ with the sender’s name so that on arrival to a mobile device, it is immediately obvious from where it originated; and
  • advertising capabilities e.g. for upcoming events.
