Message Media SMS solutions for Maze

Civica Education began working with Message Media in 2008 due to the growing demand from Schools for database driven text messaging (SMS). Schools were telling Civica Education they wanted to harness data from Maze, in particular attendance and absence information, and automate the process of informing parents and care givers.

To begin the process, Civica Education approached a number of specialist SMS providers with Message Media emerging as the clear favourite due to their product offering and strategic approach to partnering.
