Schedule business text messages
Schedule text messages with the Esendex ECHO platform or use our API or Zapier plugin to schedule SMS with your current communication scheduling software. Scheduling messages works towards optimum engagement. Many studies have been performed on the best time to communicate with end-users. Additionally, SMS scheduling functionality can be triggered by a specific event. For example, purchasing an item from an e-commerce store can trigger an SMS notifying the consumer of delivery information.
In Australia alone, we have 32.47 million mobile connections (Source: GSMA Jan 2021 excluding IOT). With so many mobile connections comes so many means of communication. It’s easy for people to become overwhelmed with a sea of social media accounts and other comms apps. With SMS, 90% are opened (on average) within 3 minutes. Providing receipt of read message is made easier, ensuring you have full confidence your messages have been seen and provide open communication channels for two-way chat.
What problem can Esendex SMS solve for you?
Send and receive SMS online
Send text confirmations or bulk SMS via any computer, smartphone or tablet with the Esendex portal. With the ability to import contacts and export analytic reports, no other software is required to start communicating efficiently today.
Why re-invent the wheel? Our SMS API can fit into your existing CRM or communication platform. No need for extensive staff training or expensive restructuring; we can work with your current process (sometimes within minutes). If you don’t have developer skills, Zapier is a plug-in-and-play tool that allows Esendex to work on various platforms. Alternatively, our API is available in Java, Ruby, cURL, C#, PHP, Go and Node.
CONTACT CENTRES & HELP DESKS
Does your business require more functionality than one-way (no-reply) SMS? Our SMS chat provides the ability for your recipient to reply via SMS, enabling a two-way conversation. This functionality can relieve the pressure from busy phone lines and may seem less intrusive than calling to certain audiences. No message will be left unanswered with our secure online portal, and you can allocate the best staff member to each conversation.
The Esendex system works with an extensive array of third-party software providers. We offer dedicated plugins for Zendesk, Goldmine and Outlook. With Zapier we can integrate with 1000s of systems, including Magento, Salesforce and SQL.
