Norfolk Council Keep Hospital Staff up to Date on Bus Times with SMS Text Alerts

Consultancy firm Mott MacDonald have chosen Textlocal to deliver SMS marketing campaigns on behalf of their client Norfolk County Council. The Council are trialling an SMS texting service which has been set up to inform staff at Norfolk University Hospital of any disruptions to bus times.

The Mottmac group have integrated the Textlocal service with up to the minute alerts from bus operators, so that automatic SMS messages are sent directly to Hospital Staff as soon as any bus changes are made. Feedback from bus users receiving the alerts has been very positive, with many recipients welcoming the early notification of bus changes.

According to David Long of Mottmac, the Textlocal SMS system has worked extremely well “Proving reliable as well as quick and easy to set up”

Textlocal provide mobile text messaging solutions to many County Councils and Hospitals throughout the UK. The service is easy to use, reliable and very cost effective in sending messages to large numbers of people quickly.
