Read what one of our customers said about her first time using the One Call Now service for outreach advertising the Farmers Market vouchers.

"I have a clinic with 8,000 participants.  Last week we were having Farmer’s Market for this clinic.  We had done quite a bit of advertising the event – radio announcements, newspaper article, and we put a reminder notice in each participant’s WIC folder. By 9:00, we had printed checks for 250 clients and we had served everyone.   I was hesitant to send a text message to 8,000 people, but I decided to go ahead and do it.  So, I went to my One Call system, typed a short message reminding clients about farmer’s market going on “Right Now” and said there was NO LINE, NO WAIT.  The message went out around 9:30 AM.  In about 15 minutes, the waiting room was full and people were in line outside waiting to come in. They came that quick.  By 3:00 we had issued checks to 685 people." Brenda Foreman Columbus, GA
