Although SMS has become less and less important as communication channel, it still is the most important way of communication for a large amount of applications in terms of notification.
Especially in remote areas where there is no or only low bandwith internet connection availability SMS can be used to send important alerts from applications or hardware installments.
You can take advantage of iLert’s advanced two-way alerting and on-call scheduling capabilities, by integrating your SMS messages with iLert. Your application will send SMS messages to a phone number provided by us (exclusively for you) and iLert will take care of routing the alert to the person that is on-call and notify him/her via a large amount of other communication options e.g. push notification or Slack.
Check out our SMS integration guide for detailed instructions on how to integrate SMS with iLert.
