The first post on +Juhudi Kilimo's Labs blog is on Echo Mobile.

Juhudi is where Echo got its start, and still one of our closest partners.

Boom.
Today we're announcing USSD support at Echo Mobile!

Your organization is is already rocking mobile engagement and using SMS to communicate with your clients and beneficiaries.  Today, Echo is launching USSD services — that menu-based interface you use to check your airtime balance, and send mobile money. Everything you were already doing with SMS is now possible with USSD — faster, friendlier, with an improved user experience, and still 100% free to your respondents.

Understanding when to use SMS vs. USSD

SMS is perfect for ongoing reminders, scheduled alerts, direct-to-mobile data collection, monitoring and evaluation, and the types of engagement that help you understand the people you serve, and make their voice heard. 

USSD on the other hand enables light-weight, lightening fast, and completely intuitive interactions via the same basic phones. With the  Echo Mobile platform, in 5 minutes, you can now launch your own voting app, health survey, or instant feedback mechanism, all leveraging the power of USSD, and without contracting an IT consultant.

The basic phone just got way more powerful! If your organization is ready to do mobile right, get in touch: www.echomobile.org
