Freeparking.co.uk is making keeping in touch easier than ever thanks to
a new SMS alert service which notifies users of important email via
mobile text messages.
Clients registering their domain name with the ICANN accredited
registrar will receive an automatic SMS notification when desired email
hits the Freeparking mail server.
Multiple Alert Profiles
“A huge proportion of Freeparking’s customers are business people who
are frequently travelling and away from their offices so SMS alerts are
a practical solution to a common problem,” says Dickie Armour, General
Manager of Fibranet Services Ltd., Freeparking’s European partner.
“Despite being away from their desks, our clients still want to be able
to manage their business and that means being told when a new order has
arrived or that a client has an urgent query. The Freeparking SMS Alert
service makes this possible and means users no longer need to find a
Wi-Fi spot or pay expensive cybercafé access rates to wade through junk
Fast, Easy, Low Cost
Customers can specify which email senders, subject keywords and email
message keywords are scanned and then submitted as a text alert. When
an email matching the alert profile is received, a message is then sent
to the specified mobile phone number. Controlled completely by the
client, users can even specify exactly what information is included in
the text message.
Freeparking SMS alerts cost just 10p each and offer a whole host of
additional features. Along with an unlimited number of SMS alert
profiles, each profile is set up completely free of charge and
activated instantly. “The Freeparking SMS alert service helps to
improve response times, deliver greater flexibility and ensures peace
of mind for busy small business owners,” says Armour.
