Text Marketer has been selected by Brittany Ferries to provide a new SMS service using its SMS gateway. The new customer alerts system will use Text Marketer’s SMS gateway to send important travel updates to its customers.

The aim is to keep customers better informed of any delays or cancellations. Using an SMS gateway means that customers are alerted wherever they happen to be. A recent text sent to French customers sailing on the Cork to Roscoff line, informed them that due to bad traffic on one of the main arterial roads into the port, the ferry was being delayed to allow customers time to fight through the traffic.

Using an SMS gateway as supposed to a standalone, web-based SMS system, means that Brittany ferries can automate the sending of texts directly from their systems. This allows them to submit messages to the SMS gateway on a wide range of subjects, triggered by their customer management platform.

Setting up the SMS gateway itself is very straightforward. If you would like to set up an account you can set one up here. You will receive 10 free text credits so that you can try the SMS gateway at no cost. There is no setup cost, monthly fee or contract. Text Marketer operates a simple pay-as-you-go service. You can purchase text credits for your SMS gateway either by credit card or by invoice.You can also set up a low credit alert to warn you when you SMS credits dip below a certain level.

If you would like to discuss using our SMS gateway, please feel free to call us on (0117) 205 0202.
