Smartphone Alert

SmartPhone Alert

SmartPhone Alert provides the ability to send messages securely to iPhone and Android phones. The message appears on the full screen and the user can easily respond to the message. The message can be delivered audibly as a notification sound or read aloud. If desired, silent mode on a user’s phone can be overridden.


SmartPhone Alert informs thousands of individuals in just a few seconds. Communication is achieved via mobile data network or WIFI and is much faster and more reliable than traditional SMS.


Unlike SMS, information in SmartPhone Alert is transmitted via an encrypted and secure way with TLS. Messages cannot be intercepted.

GPS positioning

There is an option in SmartPhone Alert for notifications of a local incident to be sent to a user based on their current location.

Positioning is achieved via GPS, if available, or determined using signals from mobile network base stations.

How does it work?

Notifications are delivered using SmartPhone Alert installed as an app. When registering the device in the RapidReach account, an SMS with an activation link is sent to the user’s phone. Once installed and registered, upgrades are handled via updates in the Apple App Store / Google Play.

When the SmartPhone Alert App receives a notification, the message will appear on the screen.

Notifications can be delivered silently or with a sound alert. The message can also be played aloud through the device’s speakers.

To respond is simple, by a tap of a screen on a smart phone or tablet.

The user may also be given the opportunity to view historical messages.
