SHORTCODE OR A DEDICATED VIRTUAL NUMBER

What is a Dedicated Virtual Number?

With a Dedicated Virtual Phone Number you can send and receive SMS messaging and it only belongs to you (unlike shared Shortcodes). The virtual number is your own unique special code that employees and customers can learn to know you by, and one that nobody else can send messages from.

We have virtual phone numbers that you can easily integrate into applications, which enable P2P and P2A communication.

Having a custom number of your own for receiving messages from clients, which is a dedicated number, is a critical component for 2-way SMS communication. This allows you to directly connect with your customers and allows you to be confident that you will get their messages.

What is a Shortcode?

Shortcodes are typically 4 digit numbers unified across all networks in a country. They are generally shared by several businesses and rely on keywords to route messages to the applicable business.

Shortcodes offer some benefits such as being easy for customers to remember and optionally can allow the customer to send free replies. However they can be expensive and time consuming to set up. Promotexter is able to assist you in getting your shortcode solution up and running in the shortest time possible.
