DISC Instant Messages (IM)
Updated: Oct 12, 2018
Users of DISC can now send Instant Messages (IMs) between themselves and the Southend BID team to share urgent and important messages quickly with use of the app. This is available to download from iTunes or Google Play. Simply log in using your existing email and password before being prompted to create a 4 digit pin. If you wish to send and receive Instant Messages, turn on push notifications in settings.
Similar to what is offered by WhatsApp, users have the overall control of messages sent as they are stored in the DISC system and not on devices. Unlike WhatsApp, however, the DISC Instant Message service can be used for sharing personal data in business without causing determent to the Data Protection Act.
