School-links develop cutting edge comms platform – available to community groups for koha donations

App, text and email tool ‘Beep4Business’ now available to the arts, sports, churches and not-for-profits

Andrew Balfour, CEO and founder of School-links, is offering his new multichannel communication platform ‘Beep4Business’ for koha donations to support the community sector as it battles with the ongoing impact of Covid19. Workers and volunteers have spent hours during the Covid19 situation communicating news and updates to their clients, members and congregations, often unsure as to whether the messages were getting through. Now the Beep4Business app, text and email messaging service is available for koha donations to support not-for-profits and community groups to ensure that they can maintain contact with their clientele going forward.

Living through the devastating Christchurch earthquake, Balfour had experienced first-hand how important no-fail methods of communication are in a crisis. School-links, his communication solution for schools, became a leading communication platform in the New Zealand education sector, and his team have become a recognised authority in the field of Emergency Response and Attendance Management.

Beep4Business, the sister platform to School-links, was due for release just prior to the Covid19 pandemic, “During the lockdown the mantra ‘stay safe, be kind’ really struck a chord with our organisation. We have always been about helping people stay safe, and we feel in these difficult times that we have an opportunity to support all those agencies who support all of us.” Andrew has subsequently launched Beep4Business with a ‘koha’ option for charities, not-for-profits, churches, social enterprises, clubs, and associations.

Andrew’s Beep4Business software allows organisations to easily push out 2-way messages to members, or targeted groups, via a free Beep app, or personalised emails or texts, “We just ask that the church or charity, or whoever, contact us and we will do whatever we can to help.”
