A2P & Conversational SMS

Notify or interact with your customers or machines via SMS

Let your applications interact with humans or machines through SMS. Send a simple reminder message, confirmation a delivery, start a business process via SMS, or start a customer conversation.

Use shared or dedicated SMS shortcodes, or make use of a Belgian long number, also supporting conversational use cases to foreign destinations.

The SMS API allows you to

Send SMS

Send single or multi-part messages and track their status in real-time. Our SMS API also supports the sending of binary messages, especially useful for IoT and connected machinery. Contact us for access to our bulk SMS web interface.

Receive SMS

Reserve keywords to receive SMS on our shared short number (8937) or rent your own short number to protect your brand identity and skip using keywords in your messages.

Have an SMS conversation

Because SMS is a truly universal messaging standard (any device, no mobile internet required), it is perfectly suited for customer conversations. Contact us for more information on our exclusive conversational SMS offering for the Belgian market.
