The personalization and speed of SMS messaging make it a powerful communications channel.
One of the major benefits of SMS messaging is it is an established, mature technology. It is familiar, people have been using it for years, and no special software needs to be added to the phone in order for it to receive SMS messages.
You can send a visual desktop alert and/or a mobile alert via the SnapComms application, as well as an SMS/TEXT message simultaneously. SMS messaging can be delivered to a single user or multiple users within your organization.
We have extended our SMS capability to now include the Esendex third-party gateway.
SMS is available via admin controls where you would enter in the SMS message and publish it (these options appear when it’s enabled). Then we tie into your SMS gateway of choice to transfer/deliver the messages. It’s a flat fee on our side for this (consistent with our unlimited messaging model) since we’re not managing the gateway (that’s where you would see SMS messaging charges).
SMS messaging is a great way to keep staff informed, especially for those staff members who don’t have a smartphone, virtually all mobile phones are capable of receiving an SMS message. The SnapComms mobile application does not need to be installed on the device.
When people think of Wholesale SMS, they immediately assume it is for external purposes e.g. marketing and client communication. But why stop there, it can be an effective internal communications tool as well?
Employees are often swamped by email messages. Add to that the fact that they aren’t always at their desktop computer to check their messages because they are in meetings or offsite. This can result in info getting lost or delayed that could, in turn, affect the productivity of your employees’ work.
Using texting as a method of internal communication can help to deliver messages timely so your workers don’t miss out on important info – no matter where they are. And even if your employees aren’t supplied with a company mobile phone, it’s likely they will have their own personal phone, so they still should be able to be contacted.
