Operating a non-profit organization often means relying on the support and efforts of donors and volunteers. Keeping them in the loop and connected to your important updates is key. With one call or Web-based submission, you can easily connect to your family of staff, volunteers, and donors.
Best of all, you can stay in touch with the communication method that suits your stakeholder's best – whether its voice calls to home, work or cell phone, SMS text messages, or email alerts.
TRUE Text Messaging!
CareCast uses true SMS text messaging, not "SMTP" or "email-based" text messaging as many companies do. This is important because only SMS text messages are truly supported by the cellular networks – SMTP messages merely "piggyback" on the cellular networks with the lowest delivery priority, no way to ensure the messages are in fact received, and have a low reliability and deliver ability rating.
CareCast is able to send messages to everyone in your database…or just select groups of people. There are an unlimited number of groups you can create, edit, and customize.
CareCast delivers targeted messaging options to all of these groups and our flexible "user permissions" options ensure that only those persons whom you grant security permissions are able to send messages.
How It Works
There are two main components of the CareCast communication system. At the center is the CareCast Web-based software. This is where account administrators can launch (or schedule) voice, enhanced e-mail, and SMS text alerts/messages – as well as view results. Account details can be easily monitored. Social media (Facebook, Twitter, and RSS feeds) can be established in connection with CareCast. Plus, CareCast is a fully-hosted, Web-based notification product so there’s no additional hardware or software to buy!
Then there’s the CareCast Interactive Voice Response (IVR) phone system. Voice alerts are launched from anywhere in the world by using any cellular or landline telephone and the CareCast toll-free phone number. Send audio alerts to everyone in your stakeholder database or limit to targeted groups that you control.
Communicate with everyone in your database or to targeted groups, which you create and control.
With CareCast, importing your data is a snap. Most data formats are easily accepted and uploaded within minutes.
Quickly stay in touch by sending surveys, schedule changes, and important news and information.
Plus, with CareCast, there’s no additional hardware or software to buy – and no hidden fees.
