Why should my business be using SMS?

SMS provides an immediate yet personal notification that reaches the majority of people, wherever they may be. Most people have mobile phones with them all the time and so, SMS is more immediate than email or postal notices.

Benefits of PowerSMS
  • Better Return on Interactions (ROI)
    Every interaction with a customer has a cost and by leveraging PowerSMS thoroughly, you can be more effective yet have personal touch.
  • Reach More! Collect More!
    Collect more past due payments with lesser staff, lesser commission payments, lesser personnel issues and lesser operational costs. PowerSMS empowers the Customer to control the interactions and promises, not the collector.
  • Reduce Contact Center Strain
    Calling everyone on the list, every month is not practical or cheap. But most of them need to be reminded in some ways to respond to your required notifications. Take a hybrid approach; mix the interactions with SMS and calls. Don’t overburden the call center for voice based communications only. Leverage PowerSMS to reach a wider customer base, in a shorter timeframe at a lower cost.
  • Notifications of any Volume, on Time
    The integration with the CRM, Collections, , Billing and Financial systems allow huge volumes of contact numbers to be extracted into lists and sent off via PowerSMS gateway to the Customers, reliably, every time. The feedback loop of success and failures allow for the lists to be constantly cleaned. This reduces human intervention and ensures increased success.
  • Alternative To Dialer Only Approach
    The call center agents generally seek for either a promise to pay (PTP) or some form of response when they call. Some Customers get embarrassed (no face left) if collectors call when they are with someone, at work or lunch.
    So, giving the Customer an option for PTP-by-SMS via PowerSMS is non-intrusive yet flexible. It allows the Customer to respond to the reminder notifications at their convenience via the mobile phone text messaging, day or night. This feedback is updated directly into the system, enabling straight-thru-processing.
