Where are SMS/Text messages used?

There is a wide range of functions within your WhosOnLocation account where notifications and messages are sent to nominated recipients, e.g. visitor arrival notifications, triggers, induction course invitations etc.

Wherever an email notification can be sent, you also have the option to send an SMS notification. These are completely optional and, whilst email notifications are free and bundled in your WhosOnLocation account, SMS notifications are opt-in and incur an additional charge. Charges vary from country to country, see current charges here.

Every WhosOnLocation account comes with 50 free SMS Credits to enable you to test the benefit of SMS notifications, which are carried over from your free trial to your paid account if any remain.

For more help with SMS charges please email helpdesk@whosonlocation.com or use the Submit a Ticket option in the upper toolbar of the Helpdesk.
