key benefits / latest features

Groupcall is committed to providing cost effective services to schools

By sending SMS or voice messages to mobiles and landlines, your school can dramatically cut down time spent on the phone and with it, the cost of calls, sometimes by thousands of pounds a year. In addition to the cost savings with telephone bills, plenty of further costs can be saved by sending out electronic newsletters/letters, thus reducing the time and money spent on printing and postage.

Messenger provides a simple solution to keep communication expenditure low. Sending text messages instantly is a quick and cost-effective way to ease the pressure on inbound/outbound phone lines and reception staff. The integrated email and innovative push messages (Xpressions app) systems provide free communication services and can save schools thousands of pounds by reducing printing and postage requirements as well as improving the school’s environmental footprint.
