SMSGlobal’s SMS Plugin MKII allows you to reach people and not just their inbox. Since SMS guarantees a very high response rate, it is a very effective business communication tool to have in your customer communication strategy kit.

This WordPress plugin uses powerful, secure and robust enterprise-grade APIs to ensure successful SMS deliveries.

Features

1) Send message to a single or multiple contacts.
2) You can copy and paste multiple numbers from an Excel file or a CSV file. The plugin automatically recognizes the numbers and organizes them in the required format for sending SMS.
3) You can even schedule a message to be sent in the future so that you are reaching your customers at the right time.
4) A real-time preview of the message is also provided that helps you see how the message would look on the customer’s phone.
5) A standard SMS contains 160 characters in length. However, if you wish to send a longer message, our plugin supports that as well via multi-part messaging. Unicode messaging is also available allowing you to send SMS in all languages.
6) A report regarding the status of your SMS campaign will be immediately available to you under the Reports section.
