Regroup is a communications platform for organizations that offers[2] forums, group management, mailing list management, intranet, emergency messaging, group SMS, text messages, and social media.[3][4]

Regroup also has teamed with Datatel to offer a next-generation Emergency Messaging solution.[5]

History[edit]

Regroup was founded by students in 2006 at Stanford University as a way to enable the school to support and manage the natural communications of its constituents. Since then, Regroup has spread throughout the country to many prominent universities and organizations.

Regroup is venture backed by HighBAR Ventures.[6]

Product features[edit]

Making an update on Regroup pushes the update to a number of different platforms at once. This allows group members to choose whether they want to stay updated via email, SMS, voice broadcasts, Facebook, Twitter, RSS, the organization's own website (through an embedded forum), or the Regroup feeds. Updates can be sent to any or all platforms depending on the person posting, and users can also set their preferred medium for receiving group messages.
