Uptrust reminds people to attend court and other obligations. We use text messages. Text messages have 98% open-rate, much better than phone calls from anonymous numbers or mailed letters that often don’t reach the recipient.
Uptrust is two-way in nature, providing an opportunity for your clients to reach you with questions or concerns. Our system is dynamic and tailors its messages based on defendant needs. For example, we remind people of childcare or connect them to transportation providers in their community. Additionally, our system periodically checks to ensure phone numbers are still operational.
Our messages have been crafted in concert with public defenders, behavioral economists, and social workers to deliver maximum impact, and humanize the criminal justice system.
