Confirm message delivery and improve read rates

  • High open rates with SMS

    Get open rates of more than 90% with text message reminders. Messages are read, on average, within four minutes.

  • Immediate delivery confirmation

    Ensure dispatch texts reach a technician's phone and build alternate routing logic for undelivered messages.

  • Use the app they already have

    Receive work-order details on a phone's native SMS app.

How it works
Step 1:  Your web app
A work order is created from a field service management system.

Building blocks

  • Numbers

    Choose local or toll-free numbers specific to the dispatch area.

  • SMS & MMS

    Send text and picture messages with the specified information.

  • Voice

    Delivery with an automated, outbound call with dispatch details.

  • Taskrouter

    Prioritize and assign dispatch notifications based on technician skill and availability.

Twilio 101

How to

$AccountSid = "ACXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX";
$AuthToken = "YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY";

// Instantiate a new Twilio Rest Client
$client = new Services_Twilio($AccountSid, $AuthToken);

/* Your Twilio Number or Outgoing Caller ID */
$from = 'NNNNNNNNNN';

// make an associative array of server admins. Feel free to change/add your
// own phone number and name here.
$people = array(
"4158675309" => "Johnny",
"4158675310" => "Helen",
"4158675311" => "Virgil",
);

// Iterate over all admins in the $people array. $to is the phone number,
// $name is the user's name
foreach ($people as $to => $name) {
// Send a new outgoing SMS
$body = "A new repair job is available in San Francisco. Reply 'yes' to accept.";
$client->account->sms_messages->create($from, $to, $body);
echo "Sent message to $name";
}
