After a surge of call center calls during Hurricane Irma, a regional energy company refocused its emergency response program on text messaging, which 70% of its customers preferred over email or voice mail.

During Hurricane Florence, the company used short codes to set up a text messaging system in less than 24 hours and successfully deliver over 7 million messages.
