The Benefits of Using an Online Text Message Service
SMS provides businesses with a way to engage with their customers, patients, citizens or employees directly to their mobile phone quickly and efficiently.
Text messages have much higher open and engagement rates than email and allow for the customer to reply directly. So many marketing emails simply go unread in crowded inboxes, whereas text offers a direct approach that is far more likely to not only get a customer’s attention, but their engagement as well.
Mobile communication is becoming increasingly important. Your customers and employees expect the ability to engage with your brand in their favourite channel. Our solution not only allows you to send in bulk directly from the platform, you can also automate messages, so they are triggered automatically.
Build and integrate SMS APIs and applications quickly and easily using our unified SMS messaging platform. Our documentation is direct, clear and very easy to understand. You won’t believe how quickly you can integrate our SMS API.
