Uses SMS to confirm user identities, reduce fraud and provide an effective communications channel

The Challenge

Talabat was looking to replace their original two-factor authentication (2FA) vendor because they were experiencing continual SMS delivery and latency issues, where these critical 2FA messages were not reaching intended recipients. This led to a negative impact on the registration process, disruptions to the flow of consistent communications and lost revenue.

Sending an SMS message may seem simple, but it’s actually a very complex process. As a Mobile Network Operator (MNO) and part of the BICS family (leading international telecommunications enabler), TeleSign has mastered the intricacies of sending SMS messages. This was a key reason Talabat deployed a TeleSign SMS solution. With TeleSign’s SMS API, Talabat’s messages are consistently being delivered on-time and reaching global customers. With significantly improved SMS delivery rates, Talabat has increased registration completions, improved customer satisfaction rates and has encouraging active use and repeat sales.
