PEI LAUNCHES TEX T ALERTS
The Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) recently introduced a text alert service for mobile phones.
The service will provide users with real-time industry and
association news via PEI 10-Groups, PEI Young Executives
and PEI Women, as well as general industry news.
“We encourage everyone to sign up for text alerts from PEI
to get real-time information of importance,” said Bob Renkes,
executive vice president of PEI. “The new service delivers
essential PEI event information and association news right to
their mobile phones.”
The first PEI text alerts deployed just in time for the 2016
PEI Young Executive Winter Conference on South Padre
Island, Texas. Conference attendees received event information and links to important downloads on their mobile devices.
“We see this being replicated for all major PEI events,
including the upcoming PEI Purchasing and Inventory
Conference and the annual PEI Convention at the NACS
Show,” Renkes said.
The service is available to all mobile phone users in the U.S.
and Canada. Standard message and text rates may apply.
