Williams Lake First Nation Continues Massive Communications Push; Releases New Mobile Application for Their Members.
Williams Lake First Nation’s leadership takes pride in being culturally-centred and future-focused when determining policy, projects, and how to best support their community—to this end, leadership is pleased to announce the launch of the Williams Lake First Nation Official Mobile App.
Created in partnership with Canadian software company Aivia Inc., the app is open to Williams Lake First Nation member registration on iOS and Android and will enable leadership to directly reach out to members about events, news, elections, resources, and even contact individual members via push notification. Built-in analytics let leadership know what messages are most effective and allows them to verify that important messages have been seen, meaning fewer chances for information to slip through the cracks.
CAO Aaron Mannella has embraced the app as a method of quickly distributing vital information to WLFN members explaining, “When there’s urgent information that needs to be distributed, having to rely on Facebook, phone calls, and printed notices means that things can be missed. An official app means our members can trust where the information is coming from, and our communications staff can send messages to our members’ devices at a moment’s notice.”
When asked for his thoughts on the app, Chief Willie Sellars said, “Leadership requires constantly looking forward; making sure we are adopting new technologies that are useful for our members is a priority for WLFN to ensure we are providing our community the best resources possible.”
