Human resources leaders can embrace text messaging to not only maintain direct contact with employees but also to promote employee engagement. Text messages are completely customizable so the possibilities are endless! Here are a few ideas to implement:
Remind your staff about upcoming training opportunities or educational programs.
Send a text during open enrollment.
Send meeting requests or remind all involved parties of their meeting ahead of time.
Notify your staff about weather alerts, maintenance updates, emergency drills, or any other daily interruptions.
Share your success! Announce goals you've achieved and recognize staff member's hard work.
Announce staff birthdays or milestone anniversaries.
We understand the value of quality communication and how effective text messages can be in keeping your staff and visitors in the know. Texting is much more convenient than other forms of communication because it doesn't require any special equipment. Creating accounts, downloading apps, connectivity issues, and password challenges won't affect your internal communication.
79% of employees feel corporate communication is full of complicated jargon. Widely accepted and common practice text etiquette allows you to communicate with simple text in an easily digestible format. Sending links allows an employee to complete forms or read additional information at a time convenient without having to worry about misplacing the info. It's accessible in their text thread anytime.
Through the LobbyFox platform, text messages can be sent immediately or scheduled to go out at a future date and time. Users also have the ability to craft the text as a template for messages that are needed often. After creating a text, select who will receive the text, whether that's currently checked in visitors, an individual staff member, or an entire department. Easily add and remove names from the recipient list so only the correct people receive the notification!
Take a look at some of the examples below for how you can utilize text blasts:
All text blasts are added to an easy-to-use queue where you can make any future edits to the content or recipients before the text is sent. Want to go ahead and send a text scheduled for tomorrow? No problem, just click "Send Now." Want to pause a text immediately after clicking send? Easy, just click "Edit" and the text blast will be paused, allowing you to make some quick adjustments before saving and adding it back to the queue. Have a text you have to send repeatedly? That's easier than ever with our text blast templates where you can not only specify the text content but also which groups of internal staff or visitors it needs to go to!
Lastly, LobbyFox always keeps a record of messages sent from the kiosk should you ever need it.

Behind the scenes, we’ve built a powerful system that administrators can use to communicate with visitors via text message. Text individual visitors, certain visitor types, or everyone currently checked in at your facility!
The LobbyFox check-in kiosk couldn’t be easier to use. When a visitor arrives at your facility, the kiosk instructs them to check in by using the touchscreen. LobbyFox asks them who they are, who they’re with, who they’re there to see, and what the nature of their visit is. At that point, a name badge is automatically printed for the guest, and their host (the employee they’re there to see) is notified via email, text, or both that they have a visitor in the lobby.
The difference between LobbyFox and other visitor management systems available to you is that–here at LobbyFox–we take care of 100% of system configuration for you. We can even assist you in the customization of your kiosk. All you have to do is plug in the kiosk, and we’ll handle the rest!
Even with very few visitors, you’ll find that LobbyFox still saves your staff a lot of time (and you a lot of money). Additionally, LobbyFox can be super useful if a great deal of your staff work remotely. Notifications can be customized to let visitors know that specific employees (or even departments) are no longer located on-premises, and that the visitor should instead meet with someone else!
One of the very core features of LobbyFox that our customers love is the ability to automatically turn away unwanted visitors, such as visitors that fail a health screening, in a no-contact fashion. As we like to say, let the LobbyFox kiosk be the “bad guy” that tells solicitors and other unwanted guests that there’s no one that’s going to meet with them!
