Short Code

Send a two-way message to your clients through our unique short code application.

An SMS short code is a 5 or 6-digit phone number that is used by businesses to send and receive text messages at scale. People opt into SMS marketing programs by texting a word or phrase known as a "keyword" to a short code. They are specifically meant to be shorter than normal phone numbers to make the opt in process easier.

Additionally, short codes are capable of sending extremely high volumes of text messages in a short period of time. This makes them the optimal choice when looking to reach large amounts of people.

SMS communication is an effective and impersonal way to reach out to anybody without using voice based communication to communicate a message.

The acceptance of SMS as an effective means is now proven with all Telecom Service Providers making this an essential service, using similar concepts across industries such as Healthcare, Banking, Payments, Retail, Restaurants, Insurance Sports, Event Management and Marketing.

There are two different types of SMS short codes i.e. shared and dedicated codes. They are further summarized below:

Shared Short Codes

Shared codes are simply any SMS short code that multiple businesses or brands use. Organizations normally share short codes because of their cost.

Dedicated Short Codes

Dedicated codes are ones that are used only by a single business or brand.
