E-SMS Gateway adding SMS to your existing email channels – A new txtNation Service for Helpdesk and CRM platforms.

txtNation’s E-SMS Gateway enables you to provide SMS Support (aka Text Support) and SMS Customer Relationship Management and SMS recruitment, universally compatible with multiple platforms. The service integrates directly with most support platforms such as Zendesk, Zoho Support and Oracle and CRM providers such as Salesforce, Sugar,  Sage CRM and Microsoft Dynamics CRM to provide a seamless integration to work alongside, in addition to, or instead of email support.

txtNation’s E-SMS Gateway makes it simple for any email-based platform to trigger SMS, email or both simultaneously, and accept replies by either channel.

Without the need for developers, or even the hassle of reconfiguring support system settings, easily setup 2-way SMS interaction through emails.

The 2-way communication is triggered in two ways, either ‘proactively’ where the customer support agent pushes a text message, or ‘reactively’ where a number is promoted encouraging text messages from those who need interaction.

Compatible Platforms:

OTP and SMS VERIFICATION

When a user is browsing over a WiFi connection, they are presented with an SMS verification flow. The user simply enters their mobile number and hits ‘Buy Now’, or ‘Subscribe’. They then receive an SMS which contains both a 4 digit OTP (One time Password) and, or a Web Link.

The user can either enter the 4 digit PIN into the payment page or click the SMS link to complete their transaction.

You can switch off the requirement for users to choose network select in your settings.
