Transactional SMS and how it can help your business

There are lots of different ways businesses are using SMS to further their business, and transactional SMS is just one of those ways – but what exactly is transactional SMS?

Transactional SMS is a term that relates to SMS messages that are sent to customers after they have completed an action, they are often automatically sent in direct relation to that customer.

With the automation of these messages, they are helping businesses with not only their workload, but also improving their customer experiences. Your workforce is then not having to be available 24/7 and carry out mundane updates/tasks, and your customers are getting personalised information delivered to them instantly.

In a world when the majority of customers are now wanting self-serve options, and demanding excellent customer service, we are seeing more and more transactional SMS messages being implemented and sent.
