Today, SMS has grown into much more than just text messages. With the evolution of Rich Communications Services (RCS), Two-Factor Authentication, mobile landing pages, and multi-channel messaging, businesses are in a position to give their customers a whole new experience using business messaging.
An SMS API allows businesses to integrate SMS messaging into their existing software platforms to send or receive messages quickly and easily. CM.com’s APIs are highly reliable and secure and make it possible for businesses to connect to an SMS gateway to send or receive notifications around the globe, even outside business hours allowing businesses to operate 24/7.
This flexibility is beneficial when your business outgrows email to SMS or Web SMS systems and demands a more sophisticated communication via SMS gateway API.

If you wish to scale your business messaging and send bulk SMS messages worldwide, SMS API integration offers measurable benefits as you get to access your API provider‘s services directly into any of your business applications, website, or system.
Benefits of SMS API Integration
Better Efficiency With Automation
SMS APIs make workflow faster and more effective reducing manual intervention by the staff. When you automate sending and receiving your SMS messages using APIs, you ensure your communications go out as planned.
For example, an API can displace a manual process executed between two applications. Likewise, if your business sends the same message regularly, an SMS API can effectively distribute these messages without manual involvement. You can schedule time-sensitive messages at an exact time, so the customer receives their notification or reminder update at the precise time.
Global SMS Coverage
SMS API lets you connect your website or application to your SMS API provider’s services for reliable and secure global messaging. You can benefit from direct carrier connections and operator networks offered by your SMS API provider to deliver your SMS worldwide. SMS API will help you send millions of messages worldwide within seconds at the highest quality.
Higher Visibility and Tracking
An API facilitates tracking messages with delivery receipts with the exact time your application delivers each message to the customer’s device, providing your application details of any anomaly in the event of non-delivery.
Another key feature offered by SMS API is informing your application exactly which outbound message matches a given response. This feature is vital for transactional messaging applications that enable you to match responses with messages.
Fast, Reliable, and Secure Delivery
Since the API provides straight access to the SMS gateway, you also benefit from direct access to enhanced speed and reliability. You can deliver hundreds or thousands of text messages within seconds globally, from your application to your target audience.
If your API provider offers the right level of security, the API enables a secure connection between your systems and your provider.
Integration With Your Business Systems
The API works across your business applications and platforms, enabling you to manage your messages from a single interface. This integrated experience provides a more cohesive and unified view of your overall communications.
