We are pleased to announce our new partnership with TechRadium, Inc., who provide a customer notification system named IRIS. IRIS allows water and wastewater systems, or any entity who works with customers or members, to use various means of notification such as voice, text, or email (or all of the above if necessary) to make notifications in a timely manner. This system is inexpensive, easy to use, incorporates mapping based on customers address, and even provides reports of contacts reached to avoid customer’s denial of receipt of a message. Ryan and Ashly from TechRadium, Inc. are there to answer your questions. See their message below:

Need to notify customers of a boil water advisory? Need to send late payment reminders?
