Description: DialMyCalls in an Android app that easily allows you to send messages to large groups of contacts. Of course, you're probably thinking that a group SMS message can do that but, DialMyCalls is so much more than that. Instead of just sending them an SMS message, DialMyCalls does what you might expect, it dials these numbers from the group of contacts you've chosen and then leaves them the message. If their Voicemail picks up, the app will leave a voicemail message. It's a more effective way of getting a message across to numerous different people and it's more professional than a group SMS.
How it Works: First of all, you should download the app from the Play Store. After that, you should head on over to their website to take a look at the service in general. You have a couple of options when you want to setup a message blast in the app.
If you're setting up a Call Blast you can record your voice or add some text.
You can manage contacts in the app, too. Remember that you get to send a blast to 25 contacts for free once a week. However, the message can only be 30 seconds in length.
When you've sent your message, it'll let you know how many of your users have either received the message, or have it waiting for them in their voicemail.
Opinion: DialMyCalls is a pretty great app for team managers and supervisors. Let's say you're running a store and you need everyone to be in an hour earlier Monday for stock take. A group SMS would do the job but, heavy texters will often ignore texts that aren't from their friends and tech savvy folk might not get the message. DialMyCalls however, will ring their numbers and either play your recorded voice message or read out your text. This is great for businesses and stores that need to get a quick message across but want to do so in a more professional manner, and one that holds more results.
