Esendex is ready for RCS messaging when Australia’s networks are. We are already delivering feature-rich communications to our international clients. SMS has lots going for it: wide reach, high open rates and responses, low cost, easy to use – and it plays nicely with other systems via an SMS API.
But, driven by the lack of group messaging and media sharing, personal communication has been moving to apps like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.
Similarly, some businesses have attempted to drive their customers towards using custom-built apps, for more personalised content, improved analytics and an immersive brand experience.
Enter RCS. The intention with RCS is that it will be the default messaging app on all Android devices, effectively replacing SMS.
As a business using RCS, you’ll be able to send your customers and staff rich content including a calendar function, so they can view and change appointments; a carousel of new products with the ability to customise colour and size, and purchase; a reminder of late payments and the ability to make a full or partial payment – all without leaving the app.
Here are some of the ways you can have smarter interactions by sending richer content to your customers.
