SMS to email integration
Our new Integration Guides let you integrate SMS with hundreds of different applications, including sending SMS via email. Which is all well and good, but why would you want to do this in the first place? What benefits can it bring you?

  1. SMS has open rates of 98%, compared to 20% for email

When you also realise 90% of all SMS messages are read within 3 minutes of being received, it‘s apparent that SMS messaging is a more effective way to receive messages than email.
Why not send emails like you’ve done before, but instead communicate with the recipient in a much faster and more effective way, enabling receipt of email as a text message?

  1. You don’t need to change the way you work

Benefit from the familiarity of your existing email account while reaching customers and staff in a new and effective way.
Embracing change can be scary, but with the integration of SMS for email there is no change for you. Just use your email as normal and the recipient will receive an SMS instead.

  1. There’s no learning curve

Sending SMS via email is just as simple as sending an email, like you’ve done a thousand times before. You’ll receive responses via email too, so there’s no new technology to get to grips with.
Here are just a few reasons why sending SMS from your email can help you better engage with your customers, without the need to change your original method of communication.
