SMS online: Fast, efficient and easy

One of the many advantages of signing up with an SMS gateway provider like MessageMedia is that you can send your text messages online. Sending SMS messages online is fast, efficient, easy and cost-effective. For businesses, the ability to send an SMS from your computer offers a very powerful solution for a number of communication issues.

SMS online benefits

Speed

Typing a message on a keyboard is much faster and easier than laboriously typing out messages on your mobile phone. Once online, you can upload your contacts into a database where you can quickly and easily sort your message recipient list or target audience.

Efficiency

Send messages instantly or schedule them for your preferred delivery time. This is particularly useful for marketing campaigns and bulk message sends, as you can broadcast thousands of messages instantaneously.

Ease-of-use

Send messages anywhere, anytime. All you need is an internet connection or access to your email. Message sending can also be automated and embedded into your business processes and systems.

Fit for purpose

Online SMS is built for business. Generate real time reports, check that messages are delivered using delivery receipts, and view a complete history of messages sent and received.

Cost-effectiveness

Sending text messages online is cheaper than sending them directly from your mobile phone.

Ways to send

There are several ways to send messages online, and the best product will depend on your business needs and the text message application.

In your email software

Email to SMS allows you to send and receive text messages from your email program, such as Outlook, Gmail or Gmail or Office365.

On the web

Web-based SMS enables you to send and receive text messages from any computer with web access. It’s easy to set up and no additional software is required.

Within your software

With APIs, an SMS gateway is embedded into your existing systems or CRM, enabling you to integrate and automate sending and receiving text messages.

Two-way SMS

Two-way SMS means that when you send messages online, you can still receive responses from the recipients. Responses are threaded to the relevant message so that you can see conversations at a glance.

Replies are correlated to the original message – no matter which network is used to send the message or reply. Responses return to you in the same way they were sent. For example, if the SMS was sent via email the response will appear in your email inbox, or if it was sent via a business application the response will come back to the application.
