Not using the API? Take advantage of our web tool.

- 5 MIN READ - 05 Jun 2017

For those customers who choose not to integrate our API into their systems, Messente provide an option to send SMS messages through our dashboard via our web tool. SMS messages can be sent to individual phone numbers, or to bulk groups --here’s how it’s done. 

After logging into the dashboard, you’ll find the web tool. To send messages in bulk, create a new group under the “Phone Book” page, which allows you to create specific groups for certain types of messages, or it creates a general contact list.


To avoid entering each contact’s mobile number into groups, upload them in bulk using a .csv file --click the downward pointing arrow next to the group, choose to import contacts, and then “Upload CSV file with contacts data.” Manually entering the mobile numbers is still an option, or you can import contacts from a Google account. 


Find the details on formatting the .csv file here.

Once contacts have been successfully imported, go to the “Compose” page, choose a desired Sender name (this will be the name that appears as the sender for the recipient,) select a contact list for the message, and then compose the message body. 

Notice that the messages may vary in length, depending on the characters being used. The Messente web tool provides the ability to replace some of the characters to be more GSM friendly as indicated (a preview of the replacement is shown by hovering the pointer over the “i” symbol.) If there are no replacement options, click on “Preview” to see the message and the associated costs. 

The message can be sent immediately by clicking “Send,” or the message can be delayed and sent at any preferred time, by clicking “Schedule for Later.”

It is definitely easier to send a lot of bulk messages by implementing our API, for which the documentation can be found here.

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.
