- Campaign Manager: Manages opt-in and opt-out permissions for SMS and email marketing. With permission, you can deliver bulk SMS and email messages to your customers. Also manages responses for SMS voting, polls, surveys, and competitions.
- Inbound and Inbound+: Receives SMS messages generated in the field from a mobile device, and can automatically sort and parse incoming SMS messages and respond. Inbound+ extends Inbound capabilities by enabling multi-question campaigns, voting, polls, surveys, and competition drawings. (Note: One Inbound user license is included as a standard app in AT&T GSMS – Corporate.)
- Reminder: Enables automated SMS appointment reminders and confirmations, ensuring that customers are contacted, which can help reduce failure-to-attend rates.
- eMailer and eMailer+: Enables email to be used as a multi-modal communication tool that complements SMS capability. eMailer+ extends the included eMailer app by enabling advanced email features. Add attachments and use unsubscribe controls, an open counter, templates, and destination filtering.
- Mobile Authenticator: Enables you to provide customers access to your online services using a two-factor mobile authentication system. Lets you take advantage of mobile phones to deliver a one-time password via SMS, delivering the same benefits as a hardware or software token without the administrative overhead.
- StaffMatch: Automates the time-consuming process of contacting staff to fill open shifts. Define your shift (date, time, and location), the role you need to fill, and any specific qualifications, and then press Send. StaffMatch sends an SMS message to all staff in your employee pool who meets your selected criteria. Staff members respond by pressing y or n. StaffMatch allocates shifts to those whose y responses are received first. StaffMatch then sends an acknowledgement to the successful staff members and advises unsuccessful staff members accordingly.
- StaffSafe: Enables you to keep in touch with workers when they're in the field. StaffSafe makes it easy to create and schedule staff checks via SMS, confirm status from the field via SMS, escalate when messages go unanswered, and gain real-time reporting of employee status. Integrate StaffSafe into existing workforce management systems for job dispatch and tracking to ensure a smooth end-to-end process flow.
