We have recently upgraded two of our most popular features, text messaging and text-to-speech recordings.
Customers of DialMyCalls that are currently using version 2.0 can login and immediately utilize the two new upgrades. Your feedback is extremely helpful and has makes it possible for us to constantly make improvements to our mass notification system.
When utilizing text message broadcasting in the past, customers had to try and fit their important message into 117 characters - the days of trying to cut out important details from your texts are gone! Customers will now be able to send out text messages that are up to 157 characters in length as we feel that is a more appropriate length.
In addition to longer text messages, we have also upgraded to a new and improved text-to-speech recording tool. The old tool, while it worked, was not the quality that we were looking for which is why we decided to ditch it. Our new and improved recording tool has improved male and female voices as well as the ability to record a message in Spanish as well as English. Please keep in mind that if you choose the "Spanish" option that the message has to be typed out in Spanish.[click to continue...]

1. Residential Service
This is the core of your business and where a large amount of your time is spent. Take a look at the routes you have in place and make sure that they are sensible to your business. Are your trucks passing by neighborhoods that have not yet had a pick-up? Consider the money and time you are wasting by not planning routes that flow smoothly from one residential area to the next. You could cut down on man hours, and subsequently your hours, by mapping out more effective routes.[click to continue...]

If you are a part of the Meals on Wheels organization, then you deserve high recognition for all of your hard work and dedication to helping the unfortunate. If you are one the committed who has taken on the responsibility of overseeing your local Meals on Wheels location, you have your work cut out for you.

The community library provides a special service to its members in a nurturing, albeit, quiet environment. In recent years the benefits of the library and its services have become overshadowed by the internet and computer technology that allows access to many of the same services the library provides without ever having to enter one. With the money collected from memberships and over due books needed to stay afloat, librarians are finding themselves looking for ways to breathe life back into their bookshelves.
Here are a few marketing tips that a library should consider to help get their community excited about being a member again:
1) Start Book Clubs
People who avidly love to read usually love to talk about what they just read. Veteran librarians will remember the wild success Oprah Winfrey had with the book club on her talk show during the '90s. Set aside a place and time for book clubs to get together and discuss the latest novel. As a librarian you can get the ball rolling by making the reading suggestions, but over time the participants themselves will start to feel comfortable about making their own suggestions for what the club should be reading.[click to continue...]
