Keep parents and students informed and up to date with text messaging

Our parent company, Textlocal, are proud to be the official supplier to C2k who support the enhanced use of ICT in schools. As a result, the Textlocal service is available in over 1100 schools in N.Ireland.

If you work in the education system, it's an unfortunate aspect of the job that the communications infrastructure can have the potential (as in many industries) to let you, parents, and children down; a few parents always miss parent-teacher night; you might need to get an urgent message out to all parents; there will always be a few empty seats at the school play... but what if there was a more effective way to communicate with parents and teachers? Emails are too easily ignored; letters are too unreliable and slow to arrive.

TextSolution's UK SMS and international messaging services offer the answer! With delivery in 5 seconds and an open rate of over 98%, text messaging is the quickest and most cost-effective way to pass information on to students, parents and staff. Hundreds of schools, colleges and universities around the country are already using our comprehensive range of services us to push out newsletters, closure alerts and deadline reminders. But these examples are just the tip of the iceberg, read on to see what your school could achieve with SMS.

Emergency updates and alerts

Bad weather forcing the school to close? Let everyone know as soon as possible with instant SMS communications.

Updates on the go

Inform parents of school trip delays with the Messenger app allowing mass messages to be sent on the go.

Attach newsletters and other communications

Gather feedback on school events
