SMS availability request: experiences, costs, service providers?

Jan Sundström 3 years ago updated by Łukasz Kaleta (Senior Customer Success Manager) 3 years ago 3

Hi all,
Did any of you implemented the SMS option in XTRF for sending out availability requests? What are your experiences? Does it provide any added value in terms of shorter TAT, or other advantages?
I don't know if it's appropriate to discuss third party SMS service providers, but I'd be interested to hear which ones you've chosen and the costs associated? If this is inappropriate for the forum, feel free to PM instead.

FYI: The optional XTRF functionality to connect to an SMS gateway would only work with cardboardfish.com.

Thanks, good to know! But the provider seems quite pricey compared to other services. Any plans to add others?

Not currently, Jan. The interest in this functionality has gone lower and lower recently, I must say. It must be due to the smartphone market expansion...
