Does your web or mobile app send out SMS? If it does, odds are that you are using bulk SMS to do this. Bulk SMS is great because it’s cheap and fast but as a result of misuse, a lot of restrictions have been placed on it making it highly unreliable. For instance, if you send an SMS via bulk SMS to an MTN number after 8pm, it won’t be delivered until 8am the following day. And if you include a phone number in your SMS, Glo won’t deliver it to their subscribers. And with the advent of DND list and the fact that MTN placed some of their subscribers on the list randomly, there’s really no way to know which of your users will receive your SMS and which won’t. Simply put, with bulk SMS, there is really no guarantee your SMS will be delivered to your users.
Airsob is a direct-to-mobile gateway which uses its own built-in wireless GSM connectivity to send your SMS directly to your users’ mobile phone. This is the same technology a mobile phone uses to send SMS to another mobile phone so delivery is almost certainly guaranteed as it is not plagued with the numerous restrictions placed on other SMS gateways. Plus, it’s super cheap. With a flat fee of N1.50 per SMS, it is even cheaper than bulk SMS. And with our shared mobile number, you can receive SMS on your web or mobile apps free of charge or even host your own dedicated mobile number for as low as N3000 a month. So whether it’s sending or receiving SMS, we’ve got you covered.
We’re perfect for two way communications or mission-critical messaging where delivery is crucial. Interested? Check us out on www.airsob.com.
