The graphics and interface were designed by the team and I built it in PHP. Here are some of the features:

  • Clients can geotarget their messages to specific states and even area codes.
  • Clients can send updates to their Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, and SMS subscribers all in one place.
  • Graphs and data on subscribers broken down by opt-in method (SMS, web widget, or facebook widget), cell carrier, and geographical location.
  • A mobile site that allows clients to send broadcasts from their phone.
