An indigenous Information Technology (IT) solution, One Number Dial, says it will introduce a free 11-month period for subscription plans to help organizations communicate with staff and customers cost-effectively.
The service is an extended mass messaging platform that is not affected by the DND code of the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC. One Number Dial says that at a time when the government encouraged Nigerians to work from home to stem the spread of the virus, organizations need packages that allow them to function effectively and at relatively cheaper cost.
The company’s product manager Shola Kusimo said the solution is tailored for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), churches, mosques and individuals.
He said: “Regular bulk SMS suffers from limited delivery due to DND, but our solution is closing this gap. This product was conceptualized due to various customer complaints about falling behind online meetings in organizations and churches. SMS was not bi-directional and many people with feature phones were always left out. “
He said the solution is an incredible tool with years of research, adding that it has raised the bar on how companies can reach the public and staff working remotely.
For him, “a number dial is a cloud-based solution that is in tune with current realities and provides a robust platform that any organization can use to call and send personalized messages to many people at the same time.”
