CallingPost overview

What is CallingPost?

CallingPost is a cloud-based communication platform that helps organizations such as churches, schools, healthcare, and universities broadcast messages to individuals through phone calls, texts, and emails. It lets administrators create contact groups to relay audio or text messages to multiple people at once.

Features of CallingPost include polling, custom caller ID, user verification, group calling, and live call transfer. Users can record, preview, schedule, and send notifications using multiple devices, including phones, tablets, and laptops. It allows healthcare professionals to create personalized emails using predefined templates or through the template builder tool as well as attach documents, images, and other media content for more information.

CallingPost offers a voicemail detection feature, which enables agents to leave a message for unavailable members. The solution's analytics module helps supervisors track recipients, message delivery history, and successful deliveries. Administrators can also manually add or import contact details, letting them locate, search, and modify member data on a centralized platform.

Great Application

It’s been a wonderful tool to use in my line of work.

Pros
Super easy to text, call, or email from computer or mobile device. The ability to schedule the delivery of messages is a great feature. It has saved much time in reaching out to individuals one by one, plus I know the information being sent is getting to all the people. Really no complaints at all!

Cons
I wish there was a way to send links without having to type out the entire web address... maybe there is a way, but I’m not smart enough to figure it out 🙂

I loved CallingPost until two years ago. While the updates are great they have compromised the stability of the basic functionality.

Pros
The software allows you to communicate in multiple ways simultaneously. The ability to take polls is appreciated.

Cons
The way that contacts are counted. The software freezes constantly when trying to submit a message. Contact information that crosses groups does not update,

Reliable Program in Getting Messages Out to Groups

Used monthly for 1-2 years

The benefit to having a CallingPost account is enhancement of group communications. Recently a family friend, husband & wife, now both deceased because of Covid-19, their daughter would send messages or text info about her father's condition, etc.. So I would read their messages & immediately send it out to my group, the Tampa Bay Posse, including the announcement of the father's passing. Thanks to CallingPost, the calls always went out immediately, sometimes after 9pm. Glad for that update in your services. My overall experience has for the most part been very positive.

Pros
I am now retired from my law practice, however, as an active civic association leader, I found CallingPost to always be available, after they removed the 9pm stopping point, allowing urgent messages to be sent at any time. I enjoy the record of results for each message sent out, indicating live answered or answer machine received call.

Cons
What I least like about this program, is that in my effort to set up a separate account for my civic association, the program kept confusing and integrating my personal account, including the 2 different pass words, so I chose to not create the association's account, cancelling it. Since my phone number is the mail number for both my personal account & the association's account....it was a horrible experience, to keep being denied the log in, which I knew to be correct. Some programmer should create a way that 1 phone number is ok to be the main number for more than 1 account.

Would not want to do without it

We all feel this is definitely worth the money and I do not want to do without it again. It is perfect for sending out calls if we have to cancel a service at the last minute or if a church member has passed away suddenly. I always recommend it to anybody that I feel can use something like this. I am not really computer literate and I found this very easy to use and if I did have a problem customer service was right there to help me.

Pros
It is so nice not to have to worry about trying to reach each person member of our church. Before we purchased a calling post, we would have to divide up names for people to call and there was always somebody who got missed. I love it that everything goes out at one time so everyone knows at the same time. I am able to check to make sure everyone received it and can check the history for any call that has been made. It is super easy to add names and phone numbers manually or to upload them.

Cons
The only con I can think of is that the recording cannot start right away to give it time for anybody’s answer machine to pick up and sometimes the older members don’t understand that and they hang up before the message comes on.
