Education & Higher Learning.

Students and parents rarely check their emails on time, but they always check their phones. So, it’s not surprising that text messages are almost five times more likely to be read. This is why more schools are turning to mass texting as their key channel for connecting with their students and parents. iZigg goes beyond simple mass text announcements by offering industry-leading automation and engagement tools that will help schools communicate throughout the entire process – from registration and student engagement to parent communication and college placement.

SMS Text Messaging

Text messaging is the most immediate and convenient form of communication. 98% of all text messages get read, offering unparalleled opportunity to send critical updates to your subscribers.

Multimedia Messaging

A picture is worth a thousand words! Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) lets you send messages with pictures or videos to emphasize important messages, instructions, updates, or services.

Our Satisfied Clients

During a district-wide strike, Chicago Public Schools needed a way to alert students, faculty, vendors, and families about school closures and strike-related news and events. iZigg worked with CPS vendors and partners to create a messaging plan to send instant alerts via text message to opted-in contacts, reducing confusion for families and students.

The Fischell Department wanted a way for students to vote that was immediate and paperless. Working with their coordinator, iZigg created over 30 keywords associated with each entry in a poster contest. Every poster had instruction to text-to-vote. All answers were immediately registered immediately, and the department knew the winner without having to count ballots.
