There are many reasons why SMS is highly rated as a means for businesses to communicate here are a few :
SMS is Cost-effective
As a communications medium, SMS is the most cost-effective way of communicating to any mobile audience. Data is transmitted via different mobile channels than voice, and can be delivered to a handset at a fraction of a voice call. The fact that SMS can be sent out in bulk to large groups of recipients in a manual or automated manner further means that fewer resources are required to action the communication.

High Reach
Globally, there are around 7 times more mobile handsets than there are Internet access points. This means that more people can be reached via SMS than with, for instance, e-mail or fax communications. Especially in developing countries, the lack of non-mobile delivery mechanisms is aggravated. SMS is at the same time mobile, in the sense that recipients can be reached wherever they are. Further to the above, using the correct gateway will allow for global reach, with the same features, delivery and cost as a local message.

High Response to Calls-to-Action
Because SMS is an extremely personal means of communication, and handset screens are seen as nonpublic real estate, there is a high level of attention for any text message that is received by the individual. Almost invariably, the whole message is read, which is really easy since the protocol is constrained to delivering 160 characters (if no concatenation is used). These factors induce a higher than average response rate to a call to action, as there are high attention levels to incoming messages. At the same time, of course, it means that abuse and unsolicited messages are aggressively reacted upon.

An SMS is typically delivered within seconds, depending on the gateway used, message traffic, and of course on the handset being switched on and within coverage. Because messages are pushed to the handset by the delivering network’s SMSC and does not rely on the recipient retrieving it from a server, it is an extremely reliable means of getting time-sensitive messages to recipients. Whether a message is sent to 50 people in a foreign country, or simply to a staff member on the way to a meeting, it is an effective way of communicating directly to the intended recipient as close to real time as possible.

Should a business integrate SMS with its existing (legacy) database environments, SMS can be automated as easily as it is to automate the sending of e-mail. Aims, for instance, allows for generic protocol integration such as HTTP. The business is then able to automate or scripts the messages, which means that a bank can easily send automated balance updates, a financial firm stock prices based on movement, etc.

Since SMS was launched, it has excelled as an acceptable communications medium. Due to continued increase in reliability, with end-to-end solutions providers such as Aims committed achieving 100% reliability, it is widely accepted as new business communications channel.

Message Reporting
SMS messages can be saved on your existing IT infrastructure, but is also logged with a full message report by the system that Aims employs. Messages can be searched based on date, content, destination number and product or ID employed. This allows full tracking and reporting, which allows the business to exercise control.
