Personalized text messages go a long way in helping increase customer satisfaction and their overall experience.

Registering your SMS numbers

To help control unwanted SMS messages, North American wireless carriers now require all SMS source numbers for application to person (A2P), 10-digit long code (10DLC), short code and SMS toll-free to be registered. This verification process can be done through TCN and serves as an extra step in protecting consumers from spam and unwanted messages while building up your organization’s compliance with SMS communications.
