Frequently Asked Questions
Subscriber Questions (students, faculty, staff, etc.)
A: e2Campus gives you info on the go™. Signup and then receive customized, up-to-date school information such as news, sports, weather, emergencies, special events, reminders and more.
Second, you probably want authentic users and not users who enter false numbers like 123-456-7890. Third, it’s hard to uncover accidental data until it’s too late. If someone misreads a number, mistakenly types a wrong number, or changes numbers or providers, how will you know? Our past experience has shown that customer-supplied lists can be 60% inaccurate.
Fourth, our Validation step ensures the user’s phone will accept text messages. We have seen instances during the Validation step where users discover their service plan or phone is not text ready. A database dump would not uncover this.
Fifth, by allowing users to opt-in, you are testing their abilities to retrieve and read text messages. Not everyone is an early adopter like you. Plus, you are engaging them. They will make a mental connection to your communication tool – like the pride someone receives after voting. Users will be less likely to appreciate a service that is forced on them. If you don’t believe us, just look at the adoption rate of your school-issued email accounts.
And with the flexibility of e2Campus SmartCode, you can place the e2Campus registration form within your class registration process to collect “opt-in” and “opt-out” statistics.
