Clarion Call texts heavily delayed on Friday 18th - any other services affected?
Like many we had a snow day on Friday last week, and helpfully our text messaging provider (Clarion Call) had severe performance issues which meant there were long delays before parents and staff received the closure notifications. They've issued an apology today, but this is far from the first problem we've had, and I've been recommending we look elsewhere for years.
Our DH, on the other hand, is frequently very defensive of Clarion Call for reasons I have yet to fathom, and is claiming that they weren't the only ones with problems last week, so there is no point in us considering alternatives. He specifically said that Parentmail had similar issues on Friday, but I've heard from school who had no problems. I'd be interested to hear from anyone using this or any other text services, and whether you had problems on Friday?
tl;dr: What service does your school use to text parents, and did you have problems with it on Friday 18th?
