Our Products and Services
While SMS continues to be the preferred communication channel with high reliability and reach of over 6 billion users, channels like RCS (Rich Communication Services), OTT (Viber, WhatsApp message), and email are growing at a faster rate. As a CPaaS provider, we aim to offer your customers’ preferred channels, so you can reach the right people the right way. Our services allow you to turn business monologue into customer dialogue.
LINK Messaging Gateway
With our fast and simple messaging platform, technical skills are not required. Your business’s IT and computer systems are able to seamlessly integrate with our SMS solutions, meaning you can send and receive SMS messages and receive delivery reports. You can send alerts, notifications, reminders, and more to thousands of phone numbers each second. SMS is the perfect fit for urgent messages, but you can also use our SMS Gateway to create a dialogue, leading to increased traffic, loyalty, and response rates.
LINK Web Experience (formerly LINK Collect)
LINK Collect allows you to collect key customer data and gain insights to help you generate more leads and target your communications. The flexible features allow you to invite customers to events, hold competitions, request feedback on customer satisfaction, or create a campaign. It also supports multiple channels, meaning you can connect with your customers beyond just SMS.
LINK Web Experience (formerly LINK Coupon)
Build loyalty and increase traffic to your store by rewarding customers using LINK Coupon. The easy to use coupon builder allows you to customize your campaign, including with your brand personality, and then track and measure data with advanced filtering. This is great for VIP customers, boosting events, thanking customers, or saying sorry if something went wrong.
LINK Mobile Invoice
Request and collect payments with Mobile Invoice. You can also send reminders for late payments or charge for digital services. Save money and time by removing the need for paper invoices – and get paid faster!
Redefine the customer service experience with the LINK Chat platform. It offers the ability to have a conversation on a variety of channels and is integrated with payment service providers and e-commerce platforms. Furthermore, chatbots have you covered, but human escalation is built in for when that is needed as well.
Upgrade your communications through LINK Conversations which has features like multi-channel rich content, GDPR compliance, and LINK Flow – a user-friendly tool to execute dialogue. We are constantly working to add new channels to LINK Conversations so you can engage your customers in new, creative ways.
LINK Insight Dashboard
Monitor data real-time 24/7, understand customer activity, follow campaigns and organize your services with LINK in one dashboard. You can also compare your performance and activities to others in your industry with our proprietary Mobile Behavior Database. The LINK Insight Dashboard enables you to improve your mobile communications.
WhatsApp Business Solution
Over 1.5 billion people are using WhatsApp, which means more and more of your customers are on this app. With the ability to reach them on their preferred channel, your business will have higher delivery, open, and conversion rates. WhatsApp Business Solution offers features like your own business profile, notifications and alerts, automated messages, customer-initiated customer support conversations, and user verification and two factor authentication.
Google Verified SMS
Google Verified SMS is a feature on top of your basic A2P SMS that enhances trust with customers, increases opening rates, and gives previews of URL links. Your business can improve security and prevent scams through the sender verification and branding capabilities customized to your business, enabling you to confirm the identity of your organization in the messages you send to your customers. Learn more about Google Verified SMS.
This platform has over 1 billion users across the planet. It’s important to be able to reach your customers on the channels that they use, such as Viber chat. Viber allows you to send notifications as well as direct marketing messages, such as special offers and product information. We also offer automatic fallback using SMS to ensure the message is delivered.
Rich Communications Services, or RCS, allows you to enhance messages with images, videos, carousels, maps, events, predefined suggestions, and more. This means a more personalized and richer experience for your customers. Branding increases trust so customers know that the message they receive isn’t fraud. RCS can even be conversational!
SMS is one of the most widely used messaging tools and has some of the highest opening and read rates. It can be used for notifications, marketing, and customer service, and with LINK, you only need to connect to one API to communicate with people around the world.
