Overall Satisfaction with EZ Texting

TRIO Upward Bound is using EZ Texting as an organization. We use it to reach out to our 100+ students and parents. We use this platform as a way to share upcoming tests dates and just a simple check-in. Overall, communication through EZ Texting has been a wonderful experience.
  • Informing students of upcoming events.
  • Tracking students who are entering their first year of college and ensuring that they get there and are successful.
  • Texting deadlines, such as the SAT's.
  • It would be nice to have a polling option that can address more than one question.
  • The app is nice to have on our phones, but I am unable to use it as I would on my laptop.
  • Have the download excel be more user friendly.
  • EZ Texting has a positive impact on our program.
  • 75-90% of the students will receive our text messages.
  • 30-40% of the students will respond to our text messages.
This is the first texting platform that our program has used. We did research other platforms, but EZ texting was the more affordable option. Also, the EZ Texting has all the features needed to reach out to our students. This is our first year and we hope to extend it to another year.
We are able to send text messages to our alumni in the summer before they start their first year of college. We text a series of questions for nine to ten weeks. The questions range from orientation to financial aid. The outreach has been a success. Students who need further assistance will contact us and are less stressed prior to move-in day at their chosen higher institution.
