How It Works
  1. 1

    Build SMS logic into your order status software

    Purchase an appropriate phone number and connect your logic to our Messaging API, then set-and-forget. Set up triggers in your application to send delivery updates based on GPS location, real time tracking data, or certain events (e.g., last mile delivery process has started).

  2. 2

    Send status updates programmatically via messaging API

    Based on your logic, Telnyx will trigger an SMS or voice notification to your customer to provide valuable information about their order status. This could be anything from an order confirmation to real-time updates about an impending delivery.

  3. 3

    Wait for your customers to respond accordingly

    Depending on the situation, customers may choose to reschedule, cancel or simply wait for the delivery. In any case, they have a better experience as a result of your timely notifications regarding their orders.

  4. 4

    Capture data for future efficiency gains

    Leverage SMS as a way to collect data for routes (i.e. tagging numbers and creating number pools for each route) to measure KPIs and inform data driven improvements to delivery solutions
