Better Experiences with SMS Customer Service and Support

Increase Customer Satisfaction via SMS

SMS text messages are a critical part of the customer experience. However, if your text messages are not properly integrated with your customer support tools and phone numbers, it can hurt overall customer satisfaction. Our award-winning Messaging API allows you to easily integrate SMS into your customer experience.

Get a customer service SMS ready phone number

Get Telnyx phone numbers from the Mission Control Portal or Numbers API that are enabled for text messages. You can choose from long code, short code, toll-free or international numbers. With hosted SMS, you can also bring your existing customer support numbers onto our platform.

Connect your Customer Service SMS application to our Messaging API

Send or receive any type of text messages or MMS messages via our Messaging API- from any phone number that you purchased or ported. Many companies even use toll-free customer support numbers to send/receive messages, leading to a simpler customer experience and happy customers.

Receive text messages and respond accordingly
