"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think as long as your SMS's are delivered successfully with out any issues and the cost of your promotion is not exceeding the budget you had defined. You can evaluate other options and see if any one matches the existing one's capabilities.

Hi D_wathi,

Have you looked at SMSGlobal to see if their services would suit your needs?

I've used them for many years in my business, find them very cost effective and reliable - never had a problem with them or their service.  

Check them out and see if they might meet your requirements.

Hope that's helpful.

Cannot really fathom when the vendor states "has good ... security", need to justify that statement as SMS in itself is plain and not as secure with end to end strong protection  scheme. If vendor can elaborate further that will be good but beware of clouding the security principles which has not verifiable proof given.

"Good ... Security" would be minimally able to provide audit trail for accountability, authentication to identify the user and provide role based access control, authorisation to restrict the access to the crm resources, confidentiality to keep personal data encrypted and privacy protection to make sure sensitive data of customer not revealed and there is regular regime to uphold high cyber hygiene in the backend system withe regular security testing conducted and risk assessment conducted...

Few cents worth..

SMS plays the vital role to grow your business successfully. Nowadays most of the marketers are using SMS to target more people effectively.

As you also looking for the same then my recommendation goes to bulk SMS service. Being a business, I took services from this since a lot of time. This provides cost-effective and best services at an affordable price.

All the best!!
