How to use SMS reminders

Organisations from different industries can take advantage of an SMS platform to send text reminders. Let’s look at some use cases from retail, healthcare, banking, and human resources.

  • SMS reminders for Healthcare: Use SMS notifications to remind patients about their medication and reduce the costs of manual phone calls. Ex. “Your prescription is due to renew in 3 days. Would you like us to prepare this for you? Answer Y/N”.
