If you own a mobile phone you are probably familiar with short message service (SMS). Through SMS, users can send and receive short messages (up to 160 characters) on their mobile phone-commonly known as a text message. The cost of a text message is generally much less than that of a mobile phone call. SMS supports a wide variety of languages, including logographic languages such as Japanese and Chinese. They can also carry binary data, making it possible to send images or logos via SMS.
While you may be used to sending and receiving text messages on your mobile phone, you may not be aware that SMS can also be used very effectively by businesses to communicate with staff and customers. When a business wants to send a text message to numerous recipients simultaneously this is called bulk SMS. These messages are sent via specialist online software (an SMS gateway). Aldiablos Outsourcing Services are offering SMS gateways and bulk SMS messaging. When considering using a bulk SMS gateway provider there are a number of factors that should be take into account. Here is short roundup of some of the main points you will need to bear in mind.
How you want to send the SMS message?
First of all you need to decide how you want to send your text messages and which type of service you will need. Do you want an SMS application on your computer or would you prefer to access the SMS service from the Web? Do you just want to send your text messages or do you need a more sophisticated solution, such as being able to send multimedia messages? If you want two-way messaging, you will need a provider that offers this service. Another form of SMS messaging that you may want to consider is a service that dynamically generates and sends a text from your server to those of the SMS service provider's.
Make the right connections
Unfortunately, mobile operators do not all conform to one standard protocol to connect to their SMS Centre - they each tend to have their own connection protocols. This means that if you want to send a bulk text message to hundreds (or even thousands) of different mobile users you are going to need a bulk SMS gateway provider that can link with numerous mobile network operators. Aldiablos Infotech Pvt Ltd has good network coverage (ideally with direct connections) to all the mobile operators that you need to reach.
Another technical issue you will need to consider is the interface that you plan to use and whether it is supported by your SMS gateway provider. HTTP is the most common, but there are several other protocols. Aldiablos Outsourcing Services for bulk SMS gateway should be able to offer advice and support with this matter.
The amount of credits deduced will vary according to the destination. However, this is not the case when messaging fees are deducted from deposited funds. Usually, the more text messages you send, the less you'll be charged per message.
Quality of service
Ideally, you will want a gateway provider with a well-established network to various mobile operators, with access to backup routes. Customer support should also be a consideration - look for a provider that offers 24/7 support.
