What are the benefits of SMS?

Initially designed for person-to-person communication, SMS has transformed into a multi-faceted channel for businesses. It can easily be integrated into almost any other application and now facilitates more advanced forms of communication, for example application-to-person communication (like those banking alerts you receive via text), or even application-to-application communication (where one system needs to alert another system that something has changed).

But what is it about SMS that makes it so attractive and hardy? The answer lies in the very nature of a text message.


Unlike messaging apps, SMS doesn’t require downloads or updates. It’s accessible to anyone with a mobile phone.
