Getting started with the SMS integration

Modified on Tue, 5 Jul, 2022 at 8:59 AM

Our Message API integration with MessageBird allows any company using SpinOffice to chat with their customers on Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp Business, WeChat, Telegram, LINE and SMS. To improve marketing and sales alignment, SpinOffice has integrated some of MessageBird's channels into the CRM. For now, we added the SMS channel and WhatsApp Business channel integration.

Use the MessageBird SMS service in SpinOffice to deliver SMS messages to your customers instantly. Send anything from marketing campaigns to delivery updates. It’s a two-way communication, so your customers can always reach you. All messages end up in the customer’s archive in SpinOffice. Show your name (up to 11 characters) instead of a number as the sender ID when sending messages in most countries.

Send personalized SMS to a group of contacts in SpinOffice. Bypass your own mobile provider and opt to use the SMS gateway of MessageBird instead. This allows you to send your group SMS with less cost and more control. Truly an effective way to reach your target group, it’s ideal for marketing campaigns.

The only requirement is a registered MessageBird account.
