Reach your dispersed workforce with important information at the ideal time and place with ContactMonkey’s new SMS solution!

The reality of a digitally-driven world is that employees spend a good part of the workday on their phone. In fact, 90% of text messages are opened within five minutes. Rather than ignoring this, employers need to lean into the potential. With SMS employee communication, you can get more out of mobile use in the workplace.

SMS communication is perfect for any deskless workers who don’t have easy access to corporate email. It also provides a reliable way to relay time-sensitive alerts or crisis communication to employees. 

Why use SMS text messaging to communicate with employees?

  • Crisis communications
  • Employee safety alerts
  • IT & security alerts
  • Weather alerts
  • Policy updates
  • Event reminders
  • Shift scheduling
  • Employee feedback
  • Employee recognition
