Alerting & Reminders

Weather Alerts

Boomerang’s incident communications software provides the ideal solution for weather alerting.

Alerts are distributed to stakeholders based on the affected region and severity and can be escalated based on hierarchy and by communication channel.

Usage / Threshold Alerts

Using Boomerang’s alerting solution helps to safeguard the continuity of business services by delivering real-time updates. Issues relating to service capacity, usage, and status can be avoided by triggering pre-emptive warnings, allowing the necessary action to be taken to prevent disruption to services.


  • Prevent disruption to critical business services
  • Empower customers to implement warnings to prevent account issues
  • Reduce risk of fraudulent activity using response based authorisation (e.g. fraud alerts)

Appointment / Booking Reminders

The combined cost of missed appointments or bookings can have a hugely detrimental impact on profitability, so an organisation must be flexible and have an effective communication strategy. Boomerang’s technology helps to achieve this by streamlining the management of reservations and bookings. Each booking generates an SMS message prior to the scheduled date, serving as a reminder and includes an option for the customer to cancel.


  • Reduce operational overheads by automating appointment fulfilment process
  • Improving customer satisfaction by accelerating the appointment fulfilment process
  • Increase quantity of opportunities provided to agents to reduce turnover
  • Re-deploy manual resources elsewhere

Collection Reminders

Uncollected deliveries and replenishment orders leave stock rooms brimming and co-ordinating collections with customers creates a huge administrative burden. Using Boomerang allows automated reminders to be sent to the customer until the outstanding items are collected.


  • Automate reminder messages to reduce the manual overhead
  • Avoid stock capacity issues by streamlining the collection process
  • Reduce the number of uncollected orders

Legal Compliance

Using multi-channel messaging is a great way of keeping customers informed of changes to contract terms or tariff changes to fulfill legal compliance. Pro-active alerting provides transparency, ensuring customers have visibility of any changes to terms of service that may affect how they use it or the price they pay for it. Furthermore, allowing customers to respond to verify acceptance of those new terms or even embedding links in a message allowing documentation to be digitally signed, safeguards legal compliance.


  • Provide transparency, ensuring customers notified of account changes
  • Ensure your organisation remains compliant
  • Use Intelligent messaging for acknowledgment/acceptance of changes
  • Speed up the process of engagement by providing mechanism to acknowledge updates
