Send & Receive SMS Directly Into Applications
Combining outbound SMS and inbound (reply) SMS services into a powerful 2-way SMS environment, brings powerful and immediate interaction from recipients of mobile marketing campaigns, promotions and other services requiring a response from the mobile subscriber.
Companies providing a conversational approach to their business, with the added value of including personalised content, 2-way SMS services give message recipients an increased feeling of caring and intimacy from the sender.
About P2A Messaging
Main methods that enable P2A Messaging are virtual long numbers and short codes. Virtual long numbers are typical mobile numbers provided by mobile operators. Short codes are 5-6 digit numbers which are easier to remember and have a national reach.
Virtual long numbers work internationally and in roaming. Both long numbers and short codes give mobile subscribers a number they can use to initiate or respond to a P2A Messaging interaction.
Identifying The Need
Accounts, appointment reminders, order confirmations and other communications that require a response or confirmation from a recipient, need to be delivered timely and within seconds of delivery. GONG’s P2A Messaging service offers the ability to connect with your customers at any time of the day.
GONG’s P2A Messaging Solution
Our Platform Is Completely Integrated
This means that:

All campaigns are managed and tracked from the time the messages are sent from your own application or generated from within our web-based message portals, ensuring successful delivery of the message to the customer and most importantly the accurate receipt of the response. The whole process is completely intuitive, so that you can jump in and use the service within minutes.
