Toronto, ON, Canada, Feb 19, 2015 -- DealNet Capital Corp. ("DealNet" or the "Company") (cse:DLS) is pleased to announce that its mobile technology subsidiary, Impact Mobile Inc., has successfully provisioned and launched Canada's Next Generation 2-1-1 (NG2-1-1) Service with the BC Services Society call center, enabling this essential service to be the first to make texting to 211 a reality in Canada.
Starting February 2015, residents of the Lower Mainland will be able to access BC2-1-1 services by texting 211 from their mobile device. This allows the public to access free information and referrals regarding social services in B.C. with a text message.
Impact Mobile has worked with its wireless carrier partners and the BC Services Society call center to implement a two-way mobile messaging service integrated to its existing 2-1-1 voice services improving accessibility to information and increasing the province's effectiveness in responding to public inquiries.
"In addition to optimizing call-center traffic, NG2-1-1 services enables hard-of-hearing and the speech-impaired community to gain access to this essential service over their mobile device," says Gary Schwartz, CEO of Impact Mobile and SVP of Business Development for DealNet. "We see future potential for the application of this innovative service in all municipalities across the country."
