• Pin Point Smartphone App for Community Alert

    Pin Point Alerts are acutely aware of the financial challenges faced by Community Text Alert groups of all sizes. The main expense is the individual of a text message which is at the very heart of "Community Text Alert." With SMS Text message rate facing price increases from the phone networks it meant that groups needed an alternative way to "alert" their subscribers in a cost-effective manner. This is why Pin Point Alerts have developed their very own smartphone app for community text alert. The App is available for Smartphones on the Apple/iOS and Android platforms. The App delivers alerts by bypassing the phone networks, ie, alerts are delivered over the Internet (wifi or data plan) at little or no cost to the group. In fact our Text Alert App alerts are 100% for the first year for all groups using our service.

    The App is very easy to use and there is no effort on the part of the community alert group manager to make sure the App works within a group. Pin Point carry out all the necessary work in the background with the App to make things easy for you. If your subscribers do not own a smartphone then they will get the default SMS text message as normal. However for those of your subscribers who do own a smartphone the App offers an extremely effective way to reduce your running costs for Community Text Alert. The App is free to download from the App Store and Google Play.

    The main benefits of the App are as follows:

  • SchoolAlerts.ie - Cost effective system for communicating with parents

    Pin Point Alerts provides SchoolAlerts.ie to schools across Ireland

    Pin Point Alerts has developed an innovative service called SchoolAlerts.ie which allows schools to contact parents using familiar smartphone apps for free.

    The idea for SchoolAlerts.ie came about after schools were in touch with Pin Point Alerts after Storm Ophelia and Storm Emma, when they incurred huge SMS costs alerting parents about various updates. They were upset at paying a high cost for communications during a time when it was urgently required in a Level Red Weather Warning. We developed School Alerts as a way for schools to contact parents outside of traditional SMS using app-based push notifications which are free. This means that schools can send as many alerts to parents as they require, and they aren't penalised for any heavy usage during storms.
