What are CTRNews Mobile Notifications?
A CTRNews mobile notification is a message sent by your administrator that pops up on a user’s mobile device. Mobile notifications look like SMS text messages and mobile alerts, but they only reach users who have installed the CTRN mobile app.
An important advantage of CTRNews mobile notifications is that the CTRN app on a mobile device does not have to be open in order for a message to be received by your group. Any member’s smartphone or tablet can receive and display your message alerts even when their device’s screen is locked and the CTRN application is closed! CTRNews ensures that your messages will be on their screen when you want them to see them.
How do we use group messaging for our church / organization?
CTRNews Mobile Notifications provide essential information to your members. For example, users can receive:
- Event reminders
- Prayer requests and prayer chains
- Weather and closing notices
- Schedule changes
- Communication about volunteer opportunities
- Youth group notifications
- … or any announcement you need to make
We know every message is important and CTRNews will deliver it quickly and reliably!
