SMS Dashboard + API's
Self-service but with full+fast support
Start Sending SMS Today
When we launched iTagg in 2001, the web-based dashboard and our HTTP API's were pretty much everything we did. Even now with our Bureau and Bespoke services, whether we are using them to manage client campaigns and build personalised SMS solutions, or whether clients use them as self-service marketing tools, the dashboard and api's are still core to our entire business.
We are pretty proud of the fact that our SMS dashboard and HTTP API's were possibly the first ever web-based self-service SMS communications and marketing tools in existence and are still delivering many millions of SMS every month.
So how does the SMS Dashboard work... If you decide to manage your own SMS communications and marketing campaigns then the quickest way to do this is to login to a simple cloud-based dashboard, prebuy some SMS credits, upload a file containing your communications and marketing SMS text messages and your list of numbers and then hit a nice easy 'Send' button. That's what iTagg offers. Simple! Imagine Gmail but for texts instead of email.
Of course there are other options and tools such as scheduling future sends or setting up auto-replies. Delivery receipts, replies, optouts and click-throughs can all be tracked instantly and downloaded as easy to read reports. Blacklists of opted-out numbers can be managed and automatically updated when people reply with STOP to your SMS. If you send out an SMS campaign and want people to reply for a free callback, then forward the replies in realtime as emails to your call-centre so they can immediately makes the sales call while your lead is hot!
How to send SMS and receive SMS through our HTTPs API's... For many clients, logging in to our website and uploading an SMS campaign file is all they require and can be assigned to even junior members of staff. But what if you want to integrate directly into an SMS gateway so that your text messages can be sent straight from your own your IT systems and web services. iTagg has offered this service to businesses for 16 years and we've made it very easy for a good developer to do in as little as 20 minutes. We have API's for sending SMS and also for receiving delivery receipts and inbound SMS into our virtual mobile numbers and shortcode. iTagg also offers reporting API's to monitor your monthly usage, SMS wallet levels, etc. Through our Bespoke SMS Development services we can also build other reporting tools and API's to suit your specific requirements, just ask.
Please see our API technical documentation and feel free to have your developers contact us any time to talk techie, it's a language we speak well. During integration and ongoing, technical support is just a call or email away.
"and another thing ... In 2002 Steve Procter and iTagg ran their very first SMS service to provide goal alerts for the Korea/Japan World Cup. Lots of texts, but not many 'England scores' ones!" see more...
