Analyzing delivery information

- 5 MIN READ - 24 Mar 2013

Every minute Messente delivers a considerable number of last minute alerts, appointment notifications and booking confirmations.

All sent by customers ranging from financial service providers to medical institutions, airlines to customer care offices.

Although it is easy for any sender to look upon this flow of notifications as “traffic”, it is important to keep in mind that each one of those messages represent a unique customer relationship.

Here’s an example of how it looks like in Messente

Every notification is meant to contribute to this relationship in a positive way. Every undelivered message means that there is a person who does not know his flight has been cancelled, his credit card is ready to be collected or that his dentist is expecting him tomorrow at 10 AM.

Messages can be undelivered for various reasons – the phone is switched off, the phone number is wrong etc. Regardless of the reason – if you are the airline, the bank or the dentist, odds are that these situations will cost you money.

Every undelivered message means that there is a person who does not know his flight has been cancelled, his credit card is ready to be collected or that his dentist is expecting him tomorrow at 10 AM.

I have seen a fair amount of companies who pay a lot of attention to the detailed delivery reports. I have also seen a fair amount of those who don’t. My advice is to take the time and analyze the delivery information if you are not doing it yet. Your customer care will be far better equipped for dealing with situations related to the notifications you just sent.

We’ve developed solid APIs for global SMS messaging and two-factor authentication, which are currently part of processes for hundreds of companies and facilitate thousands of transactions every day. Yet we aren’t stopping there. Effectively communicating with customers and securing customer account access online are two aspects of business technology we focus on. While there’s much more to business technology (much, much more,) these are the two areas which we strive to be the best.  

That’s why we keep developing our tools to address evolving needs in the areas which we specialize.

Tools to avoid breaking the budget with SMS

01 Aug 2017

Getting the most bang out of each buck in a marketing communication strategy requires solids budget estimation. Yet when the budget is broken halfway through the month, the questions arise: How did this happen? How have we sent twice as many SMS messages than we should have at this point? Well, this is where the multipart SMS comes into play.
