Online PR News – 02-February-2011 – – Orlando, FL – FETC – Feb 01, 2011 – Connect2give announced today at the Florida Educational and Technical Conference (FETC) the availability of 2alert – a push mobile messaging service which helps schools and communities stay safer by keeping everyone connected and informed. 2alert from Connect2give enables faculty and administration to instantly send out mass text messages to students, parents, sports teams, alumni, volunteers or any group that needs information FAST.

Nearly 300 million Americans carry their cell phone with them wherever they go. Over 90% use or are familiar with text messaging - making it the easiest, fastest and most effective way to convey important information. 2alert provides administrators with a simple, yet effective way to send alerts to groups, or defined subgroups with the best method available – Text.

2alert is designed for emergency alerts such as school lock downs or weather alerts but can also be used for volunteer mobilizations, health & medical messages, service outage notifications, and event rescheduling. Administrators can send messages from Connect2give’s user friendly web portal to an entire group or sub-groups such as a specific school, just teachers and faculty or members of an organization. Messages can be sent immediately or scheduled for a different time.

According to Lars Hjoerne, CEO of Connect2give, “In times of emergency, teachers and administrators need to focus their time on student safety – not on trying to figure out what is happening and what to do next. Connect2give knows the importance of fast, effective, communication of important information so that everyone is informed.”
