Pennsylvania Integrated Library System (PA) launches MessageBee SMS consortium-wide

The Pennsylvania consortium adds 10-DLC compliant SMS notifications to keep their patrons up to date on their transactions.

Unique Library is proud to announce the addition of MessageBee SMS notifications for the Pennsylvania Integrated Library System (PaILS) across Pennsylvania this week. The public library consortium is starting their first Unique service.

Pennsylvania Integrated Library System (PaILS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing an integrated library system (ILS) for Pennsylvania libraries and library systems. The Evergreen ILS consortium serves over 150 communities and 700,000 patrons across the Keystone State. PaILS strives for results-focused customer support and building personal relationships with all clients, who are together known as the “SPARK” consortium.

MessageBee is a powerful and customizable messaging tool that offers numerous features, making it an essential asset for libraries looking to enhance their communication strategies. Easily understandable SMS notifications made MessageBee a great choice for PaILS. MessageBee also integrated well with Evergreen, the library’s ILS.

Key features of MessageBee include:

  • SaaS Email and SMS service: Our SMS and email notifications require no library-based equipment. We handle the back end, so libraries can focus on their patrons.
  • Superior Deliverability: Unique is on the cutting edge of SMS-based notifications. Our 10-DLC compliant notifications are an upgrade on traditional email-to-SMS in deliverability and clarity.
  • Customizable email templates: Our set-and-forget email notifications make attractive messaging easy as ever. Once the template design is finalized, MessageBee automatically sends notifications to your patrons.
