Send SMS messages via Web System

Short messages can also be sent to cell phones via API / interface technology. These SMS messages, which are limited to 160 characters, are still very popular. Especially when an important communication is to be made by sending SMS to a mobile phone number. But SMS messages are also still extremely popular for verifying user accounts.

Today, there are so many free email services that verifying people for online accounts by email is no longer a guarantee that the person does not already have 20 accounts. Verification by cellphone number is therefore still very popular with online services. Many providers of web services guarantee that this is a single person. Of course, there are people who have two or three cell phones, but the hurdle is certainly higher.

Send SMS via Web

Description

Short messages of up to 160 characters can be sent from the website to a huge selection of countries and mobile phone providers via an API with the SMS gateway provider. This service is relevant for you if you want to send messages to customers, but also if you want to be informed about important events on your website via SMS - for example, to be able to respond quickly to orders and customer inquiries. SMS messages are sent to the global provider via an echonet API and processed there.

How it works

Sending SMS from a web system can be used for a wide variety of ideas. The system is often used in projects, for example, to enable better verification of users. The background to this is that any number of e-mail addresses can be created on the web today, and anyone who verifies them using a mobile phone number has a good chance of largely avoiding fake accounts. A separate sender ID can also be introduced in the system - although this must be requested from the external provider.

Why echonet Cloud-Services?

Cloud-Services and echonet Products

In contrast to echonet products, echonet cloud services are created on the basis of external software. echonet products are developed in-house in our digital workshop. The following applies to the cloud services: echonet creates the interfaces and, for some services, also the technical operation / server (e.g. website statistics).

You could therefore also bypass echonet's cloud services and take care of them yourself, as you have the same option of procuring this software as we do. You can operate your own servers for this and also have corresponding interfaces developed - also by us. If you use a lot of software, it may be cheaper for you to use your own service or server - especially if you have your own in-house IT department.

This can be attractive in terms of costs, but you will create a number of construction sites around your website that you will then have to manage yourself.

Questions and Answers ...

Can I operate these services myself or have them connected to the web system?

Yes, you can. All of echonet's cloud services are not a "secret", they are officially available services, software or API interfaces.

What advantages do I have if I do this myself without echonet?

If you have a very high consumption, this can be financially cheaper for you - at least for normal operation.

What are the disadvantages of doing it myself and not using echonet cloud services?

If the software needs an update, the interface is changed by the company or organization providing it or the capacities (storage space...) are exhausted, you will also have to take care of this yourself. You can also commission us to do this, but such adjustments can quickly take a person-day and thus completely destroy the cost advantage.

SMS sending without a contract according to consumption

For the integration of SMS dispatch, the echonet cloud services also offer the option of sending SMS only "on demand". This means that there are no fixed fees but billing takes place at the end of the year on the basis of the SMS actually used. However, the fee per SMS is higher than with an ongoing fixed contract with a fixed monthly fee.

Billing takes place at the end of the calendar year based on the units actually used.

Note: You also need a contract for this type of billing, but there is no basic flat rate or fee that would be charged. However, the unit price for this offer is higher than for the flat-rate contracts. Also included in the costs for this offer is the fact that echonet takes care of the API and makes any necessary adaptations if the interface is changed by the provider.
