In fact, any communication where your application might send an email, you can send a text message instead (or as well). The main benefit is that 99% of text messages are read, compared to only around 10% of emails. So, if the information you need to send is important, then sending a text via our API or gateway is your solution.
Our SMS Gateway API is great for a quick set up for sending out text messages. Often, people will also want to pipe text responses back into a system or to an email address. You may consider a virtual mobile number to achieve this.
