Abstract

Mobile phone plays a very important role in people life today; its functionality has been extended from voice communication only devices to internet surfing and data transfer. UUM as a higher education institute, hold and organize numerous events throughout the academic year and it relies on email communications for notifying its staff. Using the email notification to announce the staff for the function is suffering from two main problems which are: First, some of the staff do not check his/her email periodically, so they may miss read the notification email about the function and therefore they will not attend the function. Second, sometimes internet service is not available or staffs are at some place where they can not access internet which will lead also to make them unaware about the function or the notification about that function. This study has successfully designed and developed a notification system in order to be used by UUM to send the notifications direct to the staff mobile phones via SMS and thus helps in make sure that the notification is delivered to all interested staff. Successfully implementing this notification system in UUM will provide the university a reliable and convenient inter communication channel.
