When it just has to work
SMS remains the most reliable, secure solution for your business communications.
The recent outage at Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram, caused businesses to reflect on the most reliable and effective options for communicating with staff, prospects and customers - and SMS remains king.
Here’s 5 reasons why:
Banks and Governments use SMS to authenticate users and transactions. Even WhatsApp uses it to confirm the identity of its users. SMS doesn’t access a user’s address book or notify other users.
SMS doesn’t require an internet connection. Applications such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Skype and Twitter require a robust internet connection, usually 4G, to receive and send messages.
76% of people are more likely to read a message sooner if it’s an SMS message (Forbes).
85% of mobile users prefer an SMS from businesses over other options (PCMag).
