How is PageGate Used By the LDS Church?
The LDS Church PageGate server is connected to their network and sends messages directly to a Zetron 2200 paging terminal. The LDS Church uses their email to send messages to the PageGate and then to the paging terminal which in turn sends the message to 2 paging transmitters.
The LDS Churches manufacturing group uses a script so that employees can use a touch screen with icons on it. When employees touch one of the icons, it can send a message to the PageGate server and then to the terminal and then to our transmitters and then to the individual pagers.
The LDS Church uses PageGate to call for maintenance, supplies needed, manager help, etc... Not all the employees have company supplied cell phones and pagers are cheap and an inexpensive option. The LDS Church already owns the paging system so there's also no monthly fees to be paid make the solution very cost effective.
Pagegate is an economical way to connect our email accounts with our paging system.
"We have had many people try to convince us that cell phones would do the same thing for us that our paging system does. But when you figure the monthly cost for everyone to have cell phones it just doesn't make sense. Pagegate has been very reliable and simple to use and setup."
