Using SMS technology PagerSMS is a unique application that turns a mobile phone into a pager. It delivers a text message with a distinctive alarm that rings continually until acknowledged by the recipient. This lets you know immediately that the message has been delivered and read.
PagerSMS over-rides the silent profile on a mobile ensuring the message is acknowledged. Once the recipient opens the message a viewed delivery receipt is automatically sent back to the system.
Pagers are fast becoming redundant in emergency response
and crisis management however, the need to contact key personnel and staff quickly and effectively remains, in or out of a crisis situation. With traditional pagers you have no way of knowing if the recipient got the message, there is no response functionality so you have to sit and wait for a response.
PagerSMS is secure, reliable and easy-to-use. Developed using Java technology, the PagerSMS application is installed on the user handset. The sender interface is web-based so you simply login to your account, select your list of contacts (which can be imported from MS excel or another database), type your message and press send.
When a PagerSMS message arrives, the application plays a unique and continuous ring-tone until the user acknowledges the message. A special PagerSMS inbox is downloaded on to the phone to activate and store PagerSMS messages as they are received.
