Make your messages more effective and your audience more responsive. Deliver your citizens the information that matters most to them, on the device and timetable they prefer. The Blackboard Connect™ Access Portal is a powerful tool that empowers your community to customize their messaging experience, ensuring each of your messages are more targeted and relevant.
Community members miss a message? The Connect Access Portal gives your recipients an at-a-glance view in to the messages you have sent. They can view email and text messages, and even playback audio messages.
Residents and businesses can quickly and easily add, update or delete contact information, ensuring you are sending only to the addresses and devices on which they wish to receive alerts and notifications. You will have better community contact data than you ever imagined.
Customize your community’s experience with the Connect Access Portal. Stakeholders can set preferences by mode – opting to receive outreach messages via email, for example, and setting emergency messages to go to multiple phones via SMS.
You will want to create subscriber groups that your audience can opt to join. Let your citizens tells you which messages they want to hear by signing up for Connect Access Portal groups. Crime alerts, parks and recreation updates, road closures, and planned utility outages are just some of the groups you can create and your community can sign up for. When your audience self-selects, you don’t have to worry that your outreach messages might diminish your effectiveness in an emergency.
