Telesign Provides Phone Numbers

Businesses that utilize SMS and Voice APIs to send communications to their customers are already aware of the many benefits of offering up these channels for enhanced digital experiences. In a few lines of code, messages can be sent from applications to mobile devices in the hands of anyone in the world. Companies that choose Telesign for these services can do so with the use of shared or dedicated phone numbers.

Our shared and pre-approved Sender and Caller IDs don’t require any additional fees and make set-up fast and easy. You can also lease your own dedicated phone number to use as your Caller ID to set up a more engaging and consistent local experience.

Here are five primary reasons a business would want to utilize dedicated phone numbers for their customer communications:

  1. To maintain brand consistency – Businesses can send SMS or Voice messages from a familiar, consistent identifying number that helps their brand stand out.
  2. To create a localized customer experience – Phone numbers that use the same country code as your customers deliver a localized customer experience. Displaying a familiar area code to your customers also leads to a greater chance of the message being opened, read and interacted with.
  3. To enable two-way communications – Open up engagement with inbound communications from your end users by providing them with a dedicated number from which they can send and receive both messages and phone calls.
  4. To offer recognizable customer-support numbers on a global scale – Toll-free or local phone numbers with recognizable patterns can stimulate customers engagement and contribute to long term retention. Letting a user pick up the phone and talk to someone is a great way to boost customer service.
  5. To enable the ability to track the efficacy of multiple marketing and communication campaigns simultaneously – Businesses can run multiple campaigns on different Sender IDs and analyze each campaign on an individual level to optimize cost and performance.
