We had a lot of issues with that same company last year.  Switched to SchoolMessenger this year and all of our phone and Email messages have been averaging 100% and 95% respectively.

Hi Folks,


We have been having some issues with the reliable of our announcement system and are reaching out to see what systems other schools have been using that are reliable.   We are currently using Alert Solutions, the phone and SMS portion of this system seems to work well, however the email portion over the last couple of months has been very unreliable.   We see sometimes up to 75% failure on email messages, most relating to delivery.  We have been working with the company but have not yet gotten any resolution that we are happy with.   They are always fixing one thing or another.


What are other schools using and what have you experiencing with how reliable the system is?  Do you review reports to ensure email, SMS, and phones message were sent successfully.

Thank you for your help.
