Advatages of Sending SMS for Reminders
Only 15 years ago the traditional voice call was the only way of reaching clients quickly. The advent of mobile phones and SMS text messaging has provided a much better way of sending and receiving small snippets of information.
Generation Y, X and even Baby Boomers prefer text reminders!*
With nuisance domestic and international marketing calls reaching epedemic proportions the attitude of the average Australian to being called has changed. Your clients are less likely to pick up the phone than ever before seeing calls from unknown numbers as instrusive.
They will appreciate more than ever before being texted instead - its far less intrusive and is much more likely to be responded to. Ask them yourself.
SMS text messaging equals major cost savings
SMS Text Messaging has the added bonus of being far less expensive than calling! Not only is the actual SMS far cheaper than a phone call, the automation that can be achieved with eConfirm means that the labor component of reminding and confirming is minimized.
