Broad compatibility Save on deployment—FirstNet Messaging is compatible with most devices capable of receiving text messages, with major US carriers, and supports a range of messaging protocols (SNPP, WCTP, SMTP, and TAP). Send and receive messages on-the-go from virtually any mobile device and keep your messages separate from the rest.  
Quicker responses Remote workers can save time by setting up preconfigured response options. For example, setting up ‘Yes’, ‘No’, or ‘Escalate’ responses they can reply quickly and get back to the task at hand.  
Delivery confirmation Gain peace of mind and help reduce remote worker errors with confirmation that vital information has been received.  
Apps for both Android and iOS handsets and tablets Get access to the entire company directory to help you stay in touch while on-the-go. This capability is simple to use and available at no additional charge to all FirstNet Messaging users.  
Highly secure messaging The Secure Messaging feature requires use of the Messenger App or web portal. All user communications are encrypted (message content and any attachments) at rest, in transit, and on the mobile device. It supports industry regulatory compliance for HIPAA, FINRA, FISMA, FIPS, and Dodd-Frank. Other security features include a PIN lock on mobile devices, message expiration, message delete on read, and remote wipe of a mobile device by an administrator.

Consolidated devices, billing, and invoicing Simplify administration and help reduce costs—with one device per worker, one monthly bill, and one invoice.
