Features : Sending

By far the most important part of any text messaging system is the sending interface. We have several sending solutions to choose from, but if you want access to the widest range of features we would recommend NetMessenger, which includes the following:

  • Send messages from a 11 digit Virtual Mobile Number (recipients can then reply)
  • Send from a Text Label – this could be your company name or a subject line
  • Input a number to send to immediately, without having to create a contact
  • Send to Contacts from your address book
  • Send to entire Contact Groups from your address book
  • Send to Distribution Lists (these are large lists that you send to often)
  • Upload Campaigns for one off broadcasts (useful for mobile marketing)
  • Create and insert message templates to save time and keep consistent
  • Compose and send your message in less than a minute
  • Schedule a time and date to send your message in the future
  • Create recurring messages that run on a schedule

Features : Receiving

In order to receive text messages from a mobile phone you must either have a 11 digit virtual mobile number, or a keyword on a 5 digit shortcode. Both have their advantages over the other depending on your type of usage, but it is rare that we wouldn’t recommend you had at least one of them.

Virtual Mobile Numbers : These resemble 11 digit UK mobile phone numbers (e.g. 07869954223). Messages sent to this will be delivered directly to your inbox and you can choose to forward them on to an email address or another mobile phone if you wish. If you choose to send from a virtual mobile number then your recipients can reply to you directly. You can also set up unlimited keywords for auto-responses and message filtering.

Shortcode Keywords : Although more expensive than virtual mobile numbers, keywords on these 5 digit numbers are ideal for mobile marketing as they maintain a strong corporate image

Features : Contacts

Fastsms offer several contact management tools to halp you manage your address books, all of which are available through our main solution NetMessenger:

Contact Groups : By assigning your contacts to groups you can send a message to all the people within that group quickly and easily from the main sending interface.

Blacklist : Any numbers that you no longer want to be able to send messages to should be added to your blacklist. If you run an unsubscribe keyword campaign you can have numbers added automatically.

Distribution Lists :  These are large mailing lists containing numbers that you often send the same message to. You can clean these against your blacklist to ensure you are not sending marketing messages to anyone who has previously unsubscribed.

Features : Reporting

Regardless of which solution you are using to send text messages you are able to generate reports from within NetMessenger in the Reports section. Here you can generate reports based on account usage; just select the type of report you would like to generate and decide whether you would like to view it online or download it as a csv file before selecting a date range.

You can also generate the same reports for individual sub users through the Administration panel. This is a great way to manage how many messages are being sent and received through the system.
