Today’s universities require communications systems that can keep up with the evolving needs of a living campus. Fast, secure and reliable are mandatory-they are imperative. 2sms is the SMS delivery provider to offer customizable service and solution options that fulfill this imperative while meeting your emergency and non-emergency demands head-on.

2sms goes beyond our competitor’s efforts to prioritize dependability above cost-cutting. Instead of compromising reliability for a volume discount with one gateway; 2sms utilizes multiple gateways for fail-over. What does this mean to you? With 2sms, when one gateway loses its connection to your wireless carriers, notification traffic automatically diverts to another gateway and you notice nothing. The result is our ability to offer a Service Level Agreement (SLA).

Imagine having the knowledge that all notifications will be delivered safely, securely and within seconds -- every time, in support of:

  • Campus Safety: Severe Weather Warnings & Power Outage Alerts and Updates
  • Admissions: Registration Reminders, Venue Change Announcements
  • Finance: Due Date Reminders, Past Due Notifications
  • IT: Outage Alerts, Self-service Password Resets, VPN Access PIN, Two-factor Authentication
  • Athletics & Fitness: Venue Change Alerts, Game Time Alerts
  • Student Life: Student Affairs Alerts, Community Alerts

2sms enables mass text messaging to mobile devices anywhere and anytime. To meet and exceed our clients’ requirements for fast delivery, reliability and security; 2sms invests in and utilizes the highest caliber technologies, agreements and certifications.
