Pigram: Technology available to the user at any moment

Today Pigram was born, a new service that allows publication on social media and the sending of emails by using SMS. The mobile technology is building a better world and we can go beyond, for example helping in emergencies.

Pigram allows you to post through SMS when you do not have an internet connection.

If you find yourself in a risky situation and need to send a message to the rest of the world, you can use Pigram to inform others about the emergency through your twitter or Facebook profiles. Furthermore, if you need to send an email without data coverage, you can use Pigram to send these updates through Gmail or Outlook.

The Pigram app, available on Google Play, uses SMS to post on social networks and send emails. The SMS sent through the Pigram application are encoded through a temporary passcode, generally called one-time passcode. This ensures that the privacy of the user is secure.

To use the service, you can register on Pigram’s website. Registration is made easy through Mobile Connect. Once the link has been secured, you will be able to use the Pigram application to post to social networks and send emails from authorized accounts. In the following video we show you the required steps to configure Pigram and its basic uses (Video in Spanish with option of English subtitles) :


When can I use Pigram?

Below, you can see a series of instances where Pigram is of use:

  • If you find yourself in a natural disaster, for example an earthquake or hurricane, and you do not have access to the internet, you can post through the Pigram app. 
  • If you find yourself in a place without data connection and you need to communicate with the rest of the world, you can use the Pigram app. 
  • If you need to communicate information with the rest of the world and you do not have the minimum required internet connection for whatever reason, you can use the Pigram app to carry on saying what you want to say. 

Over the coming days, we will show you a practical way of how to get the most out of Pigram and the possibilities that it brings as a solution of emergency notification.
Pigram, technology in the hands of everyone, building a better world.
