Value of using DirectSMS

1. Features

DirectSMS is jam-packed with features that go above and beyond your basic email to SMS service as displayed in the SMS Marketing Comparison Table.

Any time you want to receive picture or multi-media messages from your customers, staff or students, DirectSMS can provide an inbound MMS service. They can do all the things the inbound SMS service can do, with the addition of receiving any pictures, videos and any other multimedia files. It is one more option in reaching a constantly connected population. Just like SMS, MMS messages are received free of charge. You only need to pay for an MMS enabled the dedicated number to receive text messages.

The suite of DirectSMS APIs (Application Programming Interface) makes it easy for developers to integrate SMS messaging into their applications and/or systems. Therefore, if you are a software developer, you no longer need to build your own billing or administration functionality around the SMS services your products offer. With directSMS, you can get to market quicker and save months of development and testing time.

And for a complete explanation of their multiple features, they offer an SMS page overview, which discusses several topics, including their latest clients and upgrades to their services. They also provide a free trial (60 free SMS) to the service which will appear the first time you log in. This is far better offer than the other competitors. It has even an immediate pop-up screen asking you if you want to chat about their offers and services.
