Messaging

Mobile Marketing

Our SMS marketing platform enables businesses to create SMS marketing campaigns and 2-way SMS interactive conversations. Also, our platform supports high throughput scheduled bulk messaging. Therefore, businesses use our campaign management tool to opt-in their audience and send mobile text alerts, promo codes, and more.

The MMS marketing tool enables businesses to create and send pictures, audio, video, and more to their customers’ mobile phones. Also, our software converts the content into a variety of file sizes, screens sizes, and file types to optimize the quality for customers. Moreover, we can deliver MMS messages to 98% of mobile devices on the carrier networks that we have access to. If we cannot deliver the MMS, we send an SMS with a link to the content. MMS messages can be sent in bulk to a group or to individuals as part of a text messaging conversation.

Transactional Messaging API

Marketing is not the only way to engage with your customers through text messaging. With Skycore, you can also deliver a variety of transactional messages to customers’ phones using our simple API. For example, you can send tickets, coupons or receipts to customers as an MMS. Similarly, you can deliver SMS shipping notifications or appointment reminders to each customer as well.

Short Codes

Lease a New Dedicated Short Code

A dedicated short code is a 5 or 6 digit number which is registered exclusively for each business. First, we can set up a new dedicated short code and ensure it is provisioned quickly for both SMS and MMS. A dedicated short code can take up to 8 weeks to get approved by mobile network operators.

Migrate your Dedicated Short  Code

Businesses who already have a short code can move their code to our system. Also, we can add MMS messaging capabilities to an existing SMS short code without disrupting the existing SMS messages. Furthermore, businesses that have their own short code and want to keep their existing service provider, can use Skycore simultaneously in most cases.
