White Label Outbound SMS Services For Business
SMS for Business
Our SMS platform has been designed as a convenient way to send SMS text messages using an online interface for businesses, large and small. SMS provides a very unique and fast communication tool that will reach the consumer wherever they are. It is a tool that if used correctly can gain instant responses, making it ideal for status announcements (eg we're aware of a fault), or a call to action (eg your MOT is due, book it now).
Messages are sent through our online control panel, where you have the option to send immediately or schedule a sending date and time. Scheduling messages can be a great way to adopt a reminder system and has proven popular with restaurants and other service industries where missed appointments are costly. SMS can prove to be a very form of communication to ensure appointments aren't forgotten.
Control Panel Visibility
Our control panel is your central point of contact to manage these SMS facilities. There is no additional software to install, you simply login and send from anywhere you have an Internet connection. Once you have created an originator to use, and added recipients to a phone book, you can be sending messages within minutes. Panel access isn't limited to resellers, all end users can manage these facilities via a white label portal.
With our platform you can either choose to spoof your phone number, which is ideal if you would like recipients to SMS you back. Alternatively you can set the originator to be an alphanumeric name up to 11 characters in length. This allows you to set the message to appear from a keyword or company name (eg a message appears from DENTIST). The only downside of setting an alphanumeric name is that it can't be replied to as you would a normal message, so be sure to include a call to action link or number.
When a message is sent it is logged on our control panel. We also display the delivery status of each message (eg pending, delivered, failed, delayed etc). This can provide confirmation that the message has left our system, and that the customer has received it. It is provided as standard with all messages sent.
To compliment our control panel we do provide an REST API allowing you to send messages. It doesn't extend the phonebook or message logging facilities, but it does allow you to make use of our powerful and reliable SMS platform integrated into your website or application. There are no additional charges associated to using the REST API.
