Getting the Right Message to the Right Customer: Driving 20 Billion Global Interactions
Mobile messaging is the preferred communication for both businesses and consumers. With a 98% open rate, versus the 20% open rate for email, the precision of the telephone number being messaged is crucial.
Successful SMS delivery requires the correct identification of the current service provider. However, the issue many global businesses face when incorrect information is used, is that important messages aren’t getting routed correctly. When messages are sent to the wrong service provider, additional fees — which can add up quickly — are incurred to process the request to the correct provider network.
Whether you are a financial institution sending transaction notifications, a retailer sending delivery appointment notifications, or an online application using multi-factor authentication to verify a customers’ identity, the accurate and cost-efficient routing is a critical component to both your customer’s satisfaction and your businesses’ success.
