The Teacher's Call: Phonevite™ Reaches Out to Schools With Purchase-Matching for Administrators

Award-Winning Automated Calling Service Provides School Administration With Economical Ways to Reach Parents and Students With Important Phone Alerts

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 15, 2008) - Susan Tompkins, a teacher at a Shreveport, LA high school, had to make hundreds of phone calls to notify families of the school closing during this summer's Hurricane Gustav. Phonevite™, the award-winning, most popular voice broadcasting service, allowed Tompkins to reach everyone with an automated phone message quickly, efficiently and at a lower cost than similar services.

"Without Phonevite, I would have been on the phone for hours communicating the information to each home individually," said Tompkins.

Teachers and school administrators all across the country are discovering the power of Phonevite, which allows them to record and communicate time-critical messages -- like school closings, emergency alerts, school event reminders, absence notifications, volunteer recruitment drives, and other important information -- directly to the phones of parents and school staff. With schools looking to make wise spending decisions in a weakened economy, Phonevite provides the most cost-effective solution for reaching the whole school, as well as its sub-groups, in a timely manner.

"Other services charge 10 to 15 cents per call, or more than three dollars per student on a yearly basis, which works out in most cases to be more than 15 cents per call when assuming a forty-week school year," mentioned John Nahm, co-founder and CEO of Phonevite. "Phonevite provides school administrations with straight-forward pricing, with no gimmicks and without hidden fees. At four cents per successful call, schools have the perfect, affordable solution, which allows them to allocate important resources elsewhere."

Nahm and Phonevite are making the service even more appealing to schools with a new outreach promotion, which will allow educational institutions to purchase a premium package worth double the dollar amount they pay for it.

"If a school buys Premium Service for $100, we'll match their purchase, doubling their available funds and totaling $200," said Nahm. "The special promotion will be available during the month of October."
