Foodbanks help provide a crucial service to many people around the world, and are always looking for new ways to improve their system. It is important to notify those using the services when new products become available, but also keep their location and other specific needs in mind. This can be a challenge for employees to do manually, and create a lot of extra work. Eliminating any time-consuming, repetitive tasks is ideal for foodbanks, and will allow them to communicate updates to their customers much faster. So, what is the optimal way of reaching this goal? 

SimplyCast presents the Foodbank Availability Notification solution. This set of automated, digital tools are designed to help foodbanks contact their clients regarding new product availability. This system makes use of digital forms, automated communications, and dynamic sorting to improve how clients sign up for notifications and sort those who want to receive them. This helps keep the client's best interests in mind, without creating additional work for foodbank staff. 

This solution is intended to be used by foodbank administrators and their clients. 

The Process 

Each person in this solution has a few simple steps to follow to keep things running smoothly. Automation is involved in every step to make sure things are easy for foodbank administrators and the clients signing up for notifications. SimplyCast predicted the need for a solution like this, capable of improving the communication process within foodbanks. Here is a summary of the 4 simple steps for both parties to follow, to keep the system running efficiently. 

Administration- Step 1 

The first step is for the foodbank’s administrator to create an online form. This form is where any interested client can sign up to receive updates on product availability. 

Clients- Step 2 

This is where the client will either scan a QR code or text a mobile number to access the online form. They can then specify which locations they are interested in receiving updates for, and their preferred method of contact. 

Administration- Step 3 

The administrator simply has to send out the corresponding messages to those who signed up for the location’s updates. 

Clients- Step 4 

The client will receive the message for the locations that they selected, via their preferred method of contact. They are now updated on product availability.
