HOW CAN WE USE IT?


Computer Weekly; 9/14/2004, p76, 1/2p, 1c Gomm, Karen karen.gomm@rbi.co.uk

This article focuses on the Smart Project initiated by Fife council. Fife Council is

keeping parents informed of school closures

via a mobile phone-based alert system. The system, from supplier TextAnywhere Ltd., is based on SMS, voice recognition technology and council databases. The council began the project to give parents early warning of school closures and prevent them making unnecessary journeys in hazardous weather conditions. People are currently considering

other services, including alerts for housing repairs, overdue library books, school supply teachers and truancy support for parents. SMS alert system warns parents of unplanned school closures. System combines SMS and voice recognition technology with council databases.
