Integration with the Reach SMS API is really easy, as you can connect to our interfaces over HTTP/S which allows you to send texts directly from your website, app or other software. Our API uses a RESTful endpoint and our request and response payloads are formatted as JSON, but we also provide GET as an alternative.
BENEFITS OF USING THE REACH SMS API
API stands for Application Programming Interface. In simple terms, integrating with an API allows systems to communicate automatically, so businesses can send bulk text messages through their existing systems, saving time and money. Whatever programming language you use, you can seamlessly integrate text messaging functionality in minutes, revolutionising the way you communicate.
If you already have systems in place to communicate with colleagues, clients and customers, it's quick and easy to connect to Reach interfaces and add SMS functions to your existing CRM system or other operating structure.
Whether you're texting an individual customer or sending thousands of messages at a time, you can do so at the touch of a button. You’ll be able to schedule automatic responses, order updates, appointment reminders and more, with no extra time or hassle required.
You'll never need to use a separate login or password once you've integrated with our SMS API. Reach functionality will become a seamless part of your system and you won’t need to access our online platform to send messages or access reports.
We’ve got a feature-packed service that makes it easy for you to grow your business using SMS marketing. We offer MMS messaging, link shortening, SMS short codes and an inbound long number reply service, all of which are available through our easy-to-use messaging dashboard.
Pick the date and time for when you want your messages to be sent.
Make your messages more personal by adding your customer's name and account number.
Save time by creating templates for messages you send on a regular basis.
We've made it easy for you to upload mobile number data. Our software works with any standard XLS, XLXS, CSV or TXT file.
If a message doesn't reach your customer straight away, we'll keep trying to deliver it for up to 72 hours after you first hit send. For time sensitive messages we can shorten this period to suit your needs.
You can separate the data collected in your reports to create custom lists. You don't have to waste time editing the data yourself.
Reach real-time data
Our campaign reports are constantly updating to make sure that you get real-time results for each campaign you send. You’ll be able to see at a glance which of your campaigns are most successful, and adjust your future campaigns to suit.
You'll get a delivery report for every online message you send, plus you can view any replies by mobile number, keyword or campaign. Want to target customers who responded to a previous campaign? You can customise a list based on your delivery reports and replies.
Any customer that responds to a message with 'STOP' will be automatically added to a blacklist and will not be sent any further messages. You don't need to worry about removing them from your list because we've already taken care of it.
