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.

In today’s world, it feels like the technology changes faster than we can keep up. As technology becomes even more ingrained in our lives, it’s obvious, that for our own good, regulations need to evolve as well. And it’s extremely important that business owners and leaders understand new regulations to adapt in the best way possible.

Scrub customer databases and make SMS more effective

31 Oct 2017

It’s often that we are asked, “what is your average delivery rate in (fill in the blank) country?” People usually expect an answer like, “98%.” Yet cost efficiency and SMS conversion is more important than a percentage number; without context it doesn’t mean anything.

The more important question pertains to how delivery rates are calculated. Let’s point out that there are mobile operators in some countries that do not send delivery reports, or if they do, they are unreliable. Is the delivery rate statistic based on messages sent and the number of messages that received a “delivered" status? That is the most common and brutally simplified way to calculate delivery rate. First of all, in fact, it is best practice to start with clarifying whether or not the mobile number databases contain phone numbers that are deliverable.
