High speed throughput dramatically increased

High speed throughput

High speed throughput. Speed matters. Whether it’s the 40-yard stopwatch on a football prospect, the 0-60 MPH time on a sportscar or how many words per minute you can type, faster is usually better. When it comes to sending text messages to large numbers of people, faster is definitely better.

For years TextPower has been sending messages reliably and quickly. We have the ability to automatically re-send a message if it has been sent to a carrier from which the end-user has moved (e.g., they’ve changed from AT&T to Verizon Wireless or from Verizon Wireless to Sprint, etc.) and our mission-critical infrastructure with dual server clusters – one on each side of the Mississippi River for safety – provides unsurpassed reliability.

And we’ve always prided ourselves on our speed. But now we have even more to brag about. Our bulk send (where the same message is sent to multiple numbers) speeds have been accelerated to more than 200 messages per SECOND!

Simply put, this means that if you have to alert, say, 10,000 people about a power outage, a security situation, an incoming storm or a school closure, you can do that in LESS THAN A MINUTE! No other method can communicate as fast and as directly as text messaging and no other company does it better than TextPower.

And remember this: 95% of text messages are opened in less than three minutes. You can’t say that about email, voicemail or other communication methods.
Want your high speed throughput dramatically increased?

So when speed matters, choose text messaging. And when the quality of text messaging matters, choose TextPower.

I am Scott Goldman, the co-founder and CEO of TextPower and I am here to tell you about a great new development in our service.

We have recently upgraded all of our customers, at no charge, to our high speed channel. Now what does this mean?

This means, that when you send out text messages to your utility customers or people in your municipality, or if there is a dangerous situation on campus, to your university, they are going to go out incredibly fast. In fact, it’s the fastest method of communicating with people, for two reasons:

  • first of all: more messages are sent per second than any other method, and
  • second of all: text messages are read much sooner, than any other form of communication.

So here are some numbers for you: we now send, more than 200 messages per second, that means if you do the math, we can send out about 10 to 12 thousand messages per minute. Imagine being able to inform 20, 30, 40 thousand people on a campus or in a utility market area, within just a couple of minutes, that there’s been a power outage, there is a shooter on campus or some other situation that requires immediate attention.

And you know that people are going to read these messages, because 95% of text messages are read within 3 minutes. Now that’s an amazing statistic, but if you think about it, I know when I get a text message, I look at it right away, emails typically wait, they get put in spam folders, I get stacks of them from different people all day long, but when a text message comes to me, I know that it’s for something that I either signed up for or that’s very important, so I read it almost instantly all the time and the statistics actually demonstrate that. Like I said, 95% of them are read within 3 minutes.

So the next time that you need to get messages out in a hurry, whether there are in bulk, or just to a few select people, remember, TextPower’s text messaging service now sends out tens of thousands of messages per minute, so it’s really a great way for you to communicate with the people who depend on you for timely information.
