How it works:

NotifyNow by CMS sends your recorded message or text electronically from a single source to all people in any group that you select from your CMS database. Message recipients get the facts of any given situation via home phone, cell phone, text message and/or email. Messages reach thousands in seconds in multiple languages, while recording the delivery of each call. Busy signals or no-answers trigger repeat calls until messages go through or are recorded on voicemail. Unreachable numbers are logged and reported. You receive a complete report of who received the message, along with their responses.
