Email and SMS solutions
Conveniently reach your customers with engaging Email and SMS communications
Email and SMS are consumers’ preferred communication channels
For most companies, email is the go-to channel for communicating with customers – research conducted by Precisely with the CMO Council found that email is consumers’ #1 preferred channel for connection and communication. Also in the top 4? SMS, or Short Message Service – more commonly referred to as text messages. One common thread ties both channels together for our consumers: both empower an immediate, convenient and trusted two-way channel of communication. Consumers want companies to be where they are, when they want, ready to share and communicate in the way they expect, especially when they really need something. And with 85% of customers preferring an omnichannel blend of channels, if you’re not using them both to reach your customers, then you’re not reaching them on their channels of choice.
Across all generations, email continues to be the expected consumer channel of choice. Whether it’s receiving important alerts, reminders, account information or even deals and promotions, consumers want their most important communications via email. Email is accessible on any device – smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop, even a smart speaker. With consumers listing convenience, reliability, speed and personalization as the top attributes of their must-have channels, communications on mobile channels are what meets their expectations.
Additionally, when consumers want immediate one-to-one communication, they’re turning to SMS for a fast, personalized experience. It’s estimated that by 2025, smartphones will account for nearly 80% of all connections. So, are you optimizing these vital and valuable channels of engagement? Are you creating differentiation from your competition, by ensuring that your customer experience not only meets customers at their moment of need, but truly exceeds their expectations?

Picture this – you open a checking account and receive an email with a link to set up your online portal. After struggling to navigate, you select SMS as your preferred method of communication. However, instead of receiving your account statements to your mobile device, you continue to receive paper statements in the mail. But, at the same time, you do receive promotional text messages with offers that don’t apply to you. This is a frustrating customer experience. You think, “Does this company even KNOW me?” It’s most likely that this company’s email, SMS and other communications systems are all separate entities.
With EngageOne™ Communicate, you can design and deliver data-driven communications through email and SMS – and even incorporate items like personalized video, chatbots and virtual assistants, payment portals, and PDF documents – all in a single platform that delivers a seamless customer experience.
Picture a new experience – you open a checking account and receive an email with a personalized video that contains information about your new account. You can take action within the video to set up your online account. If you need further help setting your communication preferences, a chatbot can help you successfully turn off paper statements and turn on SMS notifications. After setting up your account, you now receive SMS messages that YOU care about – reminders when your account balance is low and when bills are due. Doesn’t that sound like a better customer experience?
