Uptrust sends text message reminders to attend court and other obligations. Text messages have 98% open-rate, much better than phone calls from anonymous numbers or mailed letters that often don’t reach the recipient.
Our system opens a unique two-way channel of communication between your office and the person you’re reaching, and tailors the message to their needs. For example, we can remind people of childcare or connect them to an uber. 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.
