Analyzing delivery information

- 5 MIN READ - 24 Mar 2013

Every minute Messente delivers a considerable number of last minute alerts, appointment notifications and booking confirmations.

All sent by customers ranging from financial service providers to medical institutions, airlines to customer care offices.

Although it is easy for any sender to look upon this flow of notifications as “traffic”, it is important to keep in mind that each one of those messages represent a unique customer relationship.

Here’s an example of how it looks like in Messente

Every notification is meant to contribute to this relationship in a positive way. Every undelivered message means that there is a person who does not know his flight has been cancelled, his credit card is ready to be collected or that his dentist is expecting him tomorrow at 10 AM.

Messages can be undelivered for various reasons – the phone is switched off, the phone number is wrong etc. Regardless of the reason – if you are the airline, the bank or the dentist, odds are that these situations will cost you money.

Every undelivered message means that there is a person who does not know his flight has been cancelled, his credit card is ready to be collected or that his dentist is expecting him tomorrow at 10 AM.

I have seen a fair amount of companies who pay a lot of attention to the detailed delivery reports. I have also seen a fair amount of those who don’t. My advice is to take the time and analyze the delivery information if you are not doing it yet. Your customer care will be far better equipped for dealing with situations related to the notifications you just sent.

How we help with the regulations of global messaging

26 Jun 2017

Forgoing the need to integrate network operators everywhere you need messages delivered is one of the main advantages of using a global messaging platform. Each connection includes legalities, which includes reviewing several agreements and negotiating terms, and technical tasks, like setting up the connections. So, a single company going through this process on their own would invest a lot of time doing things that have already been done by a messaging platform. Also, the company would end up with higher pricing from network operators, as it has much less traffic.

Your sales lab time is scarce

20 Jun 2017

In the series about sales research, I touched upon allocating about 30% of your research time on finding new ideas and possibilities around sales tactics. But how do you actually do it and what do you look for?

An open letter to financial institutions from Yuriy

09 Jun 2017

To the bank, credit card company, and investment firm I work with: I trust you. I really do.

If I didn’t, I wouldn’t put my hard-earned money in your hands. While I’m not a Certified Financial Analyst, I am financially savvy, so I understand that we have a mutually beneficial relationship. From a high-level, banks use the money I deposit to sell loans and invest in other financial instruments. Credit card companies make money on interest charges, other fees, and transaction fees from merchants. The brokerage firm makes money through fees on my account. On the other hand, all I expect is that you are honest about your services, provide returns, and keep my money safe.
