The case study we will use for this post is Impala Africa’s SchoolMaster to explain the meaning of variant SMS.
What do we know?
A school wants to send students’ results to their respective parents. It would be inconvenient to send to each parent their respective student’s exam results.
Impala Africa’s solution
The SchoolMaster application simplifies the complexity involved by having a stepwise process. That is appending the students’ results to the message body of the communication module; retrieving the parents’ contact numbers grouped in the way the relationship of parent-student is key; and finally pressing the ‘SEND’ button. Make sure your internet connection is fine for the application to send all smses without a hitch.
