Frequently Asked Questions About Call and Contact Center SMS

What’s the difference between Business SMS & MMS?

The difference between business SMS and MMS is that MMS is an enhanced version of mobile messaging that allows rich media like photos, videos, and audio clips to be shared with customers.

Contact Center SMS Best Practices

Some foundational SMS best practices for contact centers include obtaining express consent from contacts, the use of either 10DLC or short code numbers that associate your brand, concise messages with clear calls to action, and clear and conspicuous opt outs. It’s also a best practice to link SMs messaging records with other outreach attempts to track contact attempts and be able to measure channel and campaign performance.

What is Two-Way SMS?

Two-way SMS is a communication channel that allows businesses to have bidirectional conversations with customers via text message. The messages are sent using either short or long codes.

What are Consent and Compliance Concerns for Business SMS?

Business SMS is governed by several compliance regulations including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act which states that a business must obtain “express and written consent” before being able to communicate with customer via text. There are other regulations such as the CFPB debt collection guidelines which specifically restrict contact attempts in a business’s efforts to collect debts.

The Future of Business SMS

Business SMS is a very popular option for all kinds of use cases including sales, marketing, and customer support. As more and more businesses adopt the channel as a preferred method of communication with customers, carriers and regulatory bodies are moving to protect SMS more and more. The future of business SMS will continue to evolve and grow in popularity and we’ll see the use of MMS and rich media messaging continue to grow in interest.
