"...We wanted to provide the public with an easily accessible, free way to find and contact their US Senators; via phone, email, Twitter & Facebook.”
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
The Government shutdown generated, among other things, a flurry of calls from concerned citizens to their Senators and Representatives. Unfortunately, many found that there was no one to pick up the phone which created even more anxiety and furor amongst the citizens. Most citizens were either unaware or couldn’t easily access other channels such as social media to communicate their frustrations and recommendations to the Senators.
Today, Zappix, the developer of the popular and free customer service mobile app announced that Zappix app users can now communicate with the US Senators via Facebook, Twitter, Email in addition to placing calls to any one of the local or Washington DC offices. Zappix is providing this “Super Directory” as a service to call, tweet or Facebook with US Senators via multiple means as a service that will be maintained and further enhanced to provide convenient and intuitive experience for citizens.
“We've heard from many of our users, over the past few weeks, who have had trouble trying to contact their US Senators. Wading through websites and search engines to find accurate contact information has added to their frustration over recent events. Hearing this, we wanted to provide the public with an easily accessible way to find and contact their US Senators; via phone, email, Twitter & Facebook.” Said Gal Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing Zappix. Steinberg added, “Our goal is to provide the same convenience and accessibility our customer service app provides to consumers and businesses, to the public sector, creating a quick and easy way for the public to be heard by those who represent them.”
The app displays the US Senators for the user’s state (or they can change the state by selecting a different state in the top right menu). After the user selects a US senator they are presented with a directory of phone numbers and social media contacts for their US Senator.
