What is Text to Screen?
Imagine people communicating live, texting their messages up to the screens at your venue or event, turning your venue into a interactive chat room! Text to screen is a feature that creates an interactive experience for your audience. It allows people to send a text message to a phone number, and for that message to be displayed on a screen (TV, projection screen, etc) for everyone to see. Find out what your customers want and give them a voice. Run text to screen at your venue or event!
How to use Text to Screen
Text to screen can be used in a variety of different ways to generate excitement and keep people coming back for more.
• Text to Screen Chat: Where people communicate on screen via text messaging. Similar to an online chat room, only much cooler.
• Promotions: As a venue owner, you can send messages to the screen, promoting different specials, sales, or events you have taking place.
• Sporting Events: People can help cheer their team to victory, texting their messages to the screen in support of their team.
• Meeting new people: The club is packed, and you don’t know that pretty girl dancing at the bar – but want to. Instead of fighting your way to her, now you can send a text message to the screen, and inviter her for a drink in VIP.
• Direct audience feedback: Find out what people in your club want. Let people text requests or opinions to the screen, and get direct feedback from your customer base.
• Built in filter: Our custom built in message filters make sure the content displayed is appropriate for your venue.
Pangolin’s software creates a marketing database for you: As people text in, their cell phone number is automatically stored in the software’s database. This creates a list of customer cell phone numbers for you. Using our BULK SMS feature, you can send mass text messages out to those clients who have opted-in (subscribed) at a later time, promoting various sales, specials, and offers you have going on. People enjoy receiving these messages, because they opted in to receive them, and because they pertain to products and offers they are interested in.
Note that there are rules and regulations that affect how BULK SMS can be used in certain jurisdictions and geographic territories. Some of these are discussed in the RULES AND REGULATIONS section of our web site. It is a condition of the license agreement of IMU software that you be familiar with, and abide by these rules and regulations in your area.
