Mobile messaging for public services
Improve the efficiency of your services with text messaging
The mobile messaging service that we offer here at Textlocal is an excellent fit for public service operations; offering an easy, effective way to send important messages to large groups of recipients.
Our text messaging service makes it extremely easy to contact customer or members of the public with enticing new deals and offers; easily segmenting recipients into relevant demographic groups, to ensure that each deal reaches the most receptive audience.
Alternatively, our international and UK bulk text messaging service also allows for clients to be effectively informed of service outages, maintenance work, and provide overdue payment warnings; keeping customers clearly informed, and minimising frustration.
There’s so much that text messaging can offer public services, helping to improve efficiency and the experience of service users. With the best open rates of any communication channel and three seconds average delivery time, you stand to gain a lot from using text messaging.

Refer people to your website

We were very pleased with the take up to the Street Soccer programme via text. Mobile messaging helped us reach out to younger people in the community who are traditionally hard to contact.
