Plus, nearly two-thirds of customers want businesses to text them more often. So instead of trying to reach customers in an overflowing email inbox, why not connect directly with them via their cell phone?

Whether you want to fire off campaigns from your browser, turn everyday email into text messages, or build messaging into your apps, we have the solution. So get texting, in whichever way that suits your business.

3 examples of how businesses use SMS for informational messaging, including OTP, delivery updates and appointment reminders.

Informational text messages

Some messages are sent purely to provide information. Not to drive sales or promote. We call these transactional.

Use transactional SMS to:

  • Remind patients of upcoming appointments.
  • Send parcel tracking information.
  • Verify customer identity for mobile banking.

And it's not just for texting your customers. SMS is great for:

  • Alerting team when training location changes.
  • Getting urgent tech support for critical issues.
  • Contacting agents on the road.

When plans change, there's no faster way to communicate than via text message.

2-way conversational messaging

Improve the customer experience by offering 2-way messaging. With over half of all consumers preferring to send texts to customer support, why wouldn't you offer SMS support?

Here's why SMS is best for service teams:

  • Saves time over calling customers (and reaching their voicemail instead).
  • All conversations are in one place.
  • Speedy response times compared to email.

Faster solutions mean happier, more loyal customers.
And happier, more engaged staff. It's win-win.
