The Benefits of Text-Enabling Apps

Flowroute’s Messaging API is ideal for organizations that want to provide a more omnichannel customer experience, giving their employees and the customers they serve a faster, more personalized way to communicate. Studies have shown that the vast majority of consumers prefer texting businesses over any other form of communication, especially when they can communicate with a real person.

Why stop with Flowroute Voice SIP when you can easily add SMS and MMS capabilities to your existing applications and those in development? Users will no longer have to deal with pop-up windows or switching applications, and you can keep all customer touchpoints connected. We created our SMS API for developers to simplify the process of enabling users to text directly inside the applications they already use.

Flowroute Messaging API Features

Flowroute’s Messaging API gives developers programmatic control to build intelligent SMS and MMS interactions into their apps and services—over local and toll-free numbers using a single API. Our easy-to-use Messaging API allows you to take advantage of the following features:

Send and receive SMS/MMS

Enable SMS and MMS-based customer interactions using new or existing toll-free or long code phone numbers. Our voice and messaging services can share numbers as well, making it even easier to utilize both capabilities.

Receive detailed information

Review detailed reports that contain SMS and MMS statistics and usage records in real-time through the Flowroute manage portal, including message direction, message status, billing information, timestamps, and message content.

Customized Routing

Obtain real-time control over how SMS and MMS messages are routed through customizable webhooks that ensure developers have power over delivery at the account or individual phone number level.

Real-time provisioning

Search for and provision phone numbers in real-time through the Flowroute Messaging API or online portal to allow apps and services to scale immediately.
