TextCaster delivers school closings in seconds, the response from viewers was tremendous. Our competitors tried to copy us with other vendors, both failed due to faulty delivery and unreliable information. TextCaster works and has helped us become a vital part of our community.”

TextCaster allows us to reach our audience in a non-traditional way. We beat the competition to the punch, and I almost forgot, it generates revenue.

TextCaster has been a great asset in communication with our citizens. We use TextCaster to put out alerts, advisories, and general information. Our most interesting and successful aspect has been Fugitive of the Week. By implementing that program, we have successfully apprehended offenders that without the public’s help we would not be able to locate. By using the Mobile Web feature, being able to display a picture of a suspect is one of the most helpful features of this program.”

TextCaster has been key to our strategy of helping people move forward on their spiritual journey through engaging scripture. There is hardly a time of year that we are not engaged in a bible reading plan together as a church. The primary way that people follow along is through the messages sent by TextCaster that contain the bible plan link. We could not recommend TextCaster more enthusiastically!”
