The txttools team in Leeds are proud to announce a significant transition. Since we joined Blackboard over a year ago, we’ve made significant progress to bring our organisations and our product lines closer, and we believe it’s time that our name reflects that progress. Therefore, starting today, our business will be known as Blackboard Connect™ and our two-way messaging service will be called Blackboard ConnectTxt™.
Whilst our name is changing, nothing changes about the service you’ve come to expect. Blackboard ConnectTxt has the same powerful two-way, feature rich messaging technology. The same support team is here to assist you. The same development team is working to deliver more power, features and functionality. We will continue to invest in ConnectTxt’s two-way messaging technology to keep you ahead of the latest communications trends.
Nothing changes about the way we serve you, but our deeper integration within the Blackboard family means that you’ll benefit from being part of the worldwide community of Blackboard users. It gives us an even greater ability to invest in new messaging technologies for you. It also brings with it a companion solution that can help turbo-charge your communications programmes: Blackboard Connect 5, the leading enterprise-level, multi-modal, multi-lingual mass notification service that is used around the world by education, government and private sector institutions.
This week, you’ll begin to see some changes to our website that reflect our new identity. Whilst our new home page has an updated look and feel, it retains all of the same functionality of the previous site. You still log in the same way; you can still download the same plugins and extensions; and you can still access best practices and information allowing you to make the most of your notification investment.
The new website will have a new location: www.bbconnecttxt.com, and whilst the existing address will remain active for a long time, we encourage you to update your browser’s bookmarks.
Blackboard Connect 5 and Blackboard ConnectTxt share one goal: to help you communicate with your audience quickly and easily, on the devices that they use and value most. It’s all about helping you Connect with confidence™.
If you have any questions about what this change means for you, please reach out to your support team at +44 (0) 113 234 2111 or firstname.lastname@example.org today.
