Codeless Platforms’ BPA Platform to utilise GCI’s SMS gateways and SMS messaging API
Codeless Platforms today announced that following a partnership agreement, GCI will become its exclusive SMS service provider. As a result, Codeless Platforms’ BPA Platform (formerly TaskCentre) will be fully compatible with GCI’s SMS gateways and SMS messaging API, and GCI’s SMS services will be recommended to customers that require the ability to communicate with stakeholders via SMS.
Matthew Lidster, Managing Director, Codeless Platforms:“SMS messaging has been intrinsic to BPA Platform since 2002 and continues to be one of the key offerings to our customers. It is an extremely effective way for businesses to communicate, delivering information in real-time, which is essential for many of our customers. GCI’s SMS Services are now the preferred option to deliver this communication channel and we are extremely happy to have signed this partnership agreement with GCI. It will provide both existing and new customers with access to a modern SMS platform that is competitively priced.”
Scott Threlfall, Head of Mobile Services, GCI: “GCI Mobile Services are delighted to welcome Codeless Platforms as a mobile partner. As we move into 2018, our partner channel will become ever more important to our growth plans. Identifying key partners like Codeless Platforms is key to that growth being successful. Codeless Platforms is not only defined by its fantastic client base, it also has a fantastic team, exciting products and a definitive strategy that fits into the way we want to work with partners.”
Business to consumer (B2C) SMS, as well as business to business (B2B), has had somewhat of a resurgence of late, having proven to be a reliable and effective communication tool, with most SMS messages being opened within three seconds of receipt. In fact, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimated that over 7 billion business to consumer text messages will have been sent throughout 2017.
The popularity of the Notifications and Alerts capability within BPA Platform is testament to this. It enables Codeless Platforms’ customers to automate the sending of SMS messages to both internal (management, sales, finance, operations) and external (customers, partners, suppliers, members) covering a wide range of topics ranging from critical alerts and customer communication to data management alerts and marketing.
In conjunction with this new partnership announcement, Codeless Platforms will be issuing an end-of-life date for its current BPA Platform SMS tool, M-Science.
