Clickatell Inc., the world’s #1 global mobile messaging operator, today announced its customers can receive reply SMSs using its popular Communicator application. Visitors to CTIA Wireless in Orlando from 27 – 29 March will be able to see demonstrations of the service at Clickatell’s booth # 4668.
With strong coverage in the North American market, the two-way, or reply SMS, functionality is available on a record breaking 400+ networks worldwide.
This launch of two-way text functionality allows Clickatell customers to receive replies to the local and international SMSs they have sent, straight to their Communicator inbox. This powerful functionality allows businesses and consumers to engage in a dialogue or launch a response-centric alert program.
Don’t underestimate the value of two-way connectivity. It’s absolutely critical in my view. I can remember trying to get that functionality in America a few years back. Geez, it was that difficult, we had to host SIM cards in London on Nokias. I kid ye not. So excellent news from Clickatell.
(If, by the way, you’re hunting for some sort of SMS connectivity, do talk to Clickatell or drop me a note and I can introduce you. I’ve introduced quite a few readers in the past months and they’ve all reported super service.)
