Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) and the City of Dumaguete launched the Dumaguete Infoboard last Friday. The Infoboard is a two-way web-based information system that allows communities and organizations to send and receive real-time announcements via SMS broadcasts.

“The Infoboard will provide members of the Dumaguete community with a quick and affordable communication tool to share their ideas and concerns. We are pleased to provide Dumaguete City with this tried and tested communication service,” said James S. Bernas, Smart Wireless Consumer Department Head.

“We are proud to partner with Smart to unveil a fast and convenient feedback mechanism for Dumaguete residents. The Infoboard will be a significant tool in our drive to encourage and engage our constituents to take an active part in nation building,” said Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria.

The Dumaguete Infoboard will also be used to send service bulletins, cascade tips and advisories, and to conduct surveys that will complement the major milestones outlined by Mayor Sagarbarria.

Registration to the Dumaguete Infoboard is free and easy. Simply text MAYORREGNAME/ADDRESS/AGE and send to 717-DGTE (717-3483) to register for the Dumaguete Infoboard service.

To receive the latest Dumaguete City bulletins and announcements from the Mayor’s Office, registered users just have to subscribe to the Infoboard service by keying in MAYORPUSHON and send to 717-DGTE (717-3483). Cost of the service is P1.00 per text message.

To date, Smart has powered up the Infoboard systems of over 200 LGUs, schools, organizations and service providers all over the country. Smart is targeting to connect more communities to the Smart Infoboard by end of the year. (PR)
