Share Article

New partnership aims SMS platform toward colleges, universities, sports leagues, teams and large organizations with a need for real-time effective messaging capabilities.

Chicago-based SCFederation has joined forces with SendHub to aid in the launch of its simple messaging platform – utilizing it to send real time text messages to individuals and groups of any size. As email marketing becomes an increasingly crowded field, recipients are deleting more and more with each subsequent arrival to their inbox. SendHub’s SMS platform bypasses this inbox clutter, delivering accurate and time-sensitive information when and where people need it. This type of messaging has a greater read rate than email and as a result, more effectively reaches targeted recipients.

SendHub will benefit from SCFederation’s vast database of high schools, colleges and universities as the 2012-2013 academic year approaches. Class cancellations, athletic events or practice changes/cancellations, campus emergencies, and fee reminders are just some of the examples in which the two companies can leverage their individual capabilities to create specific, time-sensitive messaging to various groups such as administration, faculty, parents, students, athletes and coaches. Mass emails that go unread are a thing of the past. SendHub’s platform has the ability to deliver quickly and effectively.

About Send Hub:

SendHub is a simple messaging solution. It is a text-to-join system that is available for sign up at http://www.sendhub.com. From this point, users receive a free number which can be shared freely among groups, friends, family and social networks. This number is assigned to every person in the group, which they can opt-in to be added. Once a message needs to be delivered, all you need to do is text that number. Everyone in the group will receive the message.

SendHub monitors feedback to ensure users don’t spam people through the service. Every message has a link that connects users to a feedback page where messages can be rated or blocked. When users block a number, SendHub keeps a record of it and monitors the account daily.

SendHub offers a free plan that provides 1,000 messages per month for up to three groups no larger than 50 people. Plans run $10, $50, $100 and $500 per month for a maximum of 2,000 groups with 5,000 people each.
