Hi Elaine, 


Welcome to the FrontlineSMS community forum! \o/ It sounds like an interesting use case you are planning. Please do feel free to ask in the forum if you have questions as you get started with the software. It's also always worth searching previous discussions in the forum to help find topics of interest.


It would be great to hear from your friend Ben about his use of FrontlineSMS too, so if he's not already on the forum please do invite him along!


Look forward to staying in touch as you get started.

All the Best,
