Cost Optimization Kit

SMS Optimizer: Same Value, Less Cost

Now you can make every message count and cut additional costs with our SMS Optimizer, which allows you to replace long words in your messages with shorter ones without affecting the meaning or context.

By omitting extra marginal extensions, the overall character count of your transactional SMS will be reduced, which means you’ll be able to optimize your communication messages and maximize your commercial savings at the same time.

*Applies to messages exceeding 160 characters in English or 70 characters in Arabic.

SMS Optimizer

SMS Merger: More Value, Same Cost

You no longer need to overwhelm your customers with multiple messages and several announcements. Using our SMS Merger solution, now you can combine everything you need to communicate with your customers in one message - based on the available space and predefined timing.

Enjoy more value at the same cost by easily configuring your text message and adding promotional content, call-to-action transactional requests, or one-time passwords.

*Applies to messages exceeding 160 characters in English or 70 characters in Arabic.
