“We’ve built more than a dozen triggers like this, which means we’re providing our patients with more timely information and, ultimately, better service. Plus, given that we’re sending 10,000 of these SMS messages a day, that’s also saving our team tremendous time on manual follow-ups.”

“I can quickly put together a coupon for discounted service tomorrow and send it to my customers and prospects in that area. People really respond to those messages. If I send out 20 texts, about 9 or 10 people will take the offer and book a job for the next day.”

“Texting also gets us bookings much more quickly. When clients had no choice but to call one of our numbers, those calls could take 10 minutes—between navigating our phone menus, small talk and having to repeat themselves over barking. But now, they can text us a request for an appointment and that takes 30 seconds, which frees up our employees and helps us book more services.”

FAQ about RingCentral Business SMS

With your RingCentral business text messaging service, you can send and receive texts and multimedia messages (MMS) with suppliers, customers, colleagues, and departments from your RingCentral business numbers. With one professional phone number for all business communications, you will also be able to receive text message service notifications for your voicemails, faxes, missed calls, and urgent messages.
When choosing a business text messaging service, simplicity and flexibility are key. When used correctly, business SMS can be your secret weapon for supercharging engagement. Here are some points to look for:
  • Unified phone number - SMS outreach from your business number to maintain professional and secure communications.
  • Unified communications inbox - Send, receive & manage all your SMS conversations, business calls and eFaxes in one place across all your devices.
  • Carrier compliant and optimized for deliverability - Your business texting app should be designed to optimize deliverability while ensuring carrier compliance. Our SMS solution meets new Carrier requirements, helps offset some of the new per-message fees, and reduces risk of fines. All customer businesses and phone numbers are vetted and registered with TCR by RingCentral. Our advanced spam and carrier compliance detection system even helps prevent messages that would violate carrier guidelines, helping you stay in compliance and helping ensure the best possible reputation for your business with carriers. All in all, working together to drive greater deliverability, reduce costs, reduce risk to your business, and increase overall ROI.
  • Integrations make a new world of SMS capabilities possible - RingCentral provides over 300 pre-built integrations allowing you to plug SMS into all the apps where work happens for you ( Hubspot, Google, Microsoft Teams, you name it, we got it). Send marketing blasts, notifications, automate alerts, appointment reminders, and even payment requests with our SMS integrations. Enjoy advanced SMS features like:
    • Shared SMS inbox
    • Automation workflows such as auto-replies, keyword auto-responder, and more
    • Built-in AI capabilities
    • Segmented contact list
    • SMS campaign management
    • Real-time data and detailed graphical analytics, like the number of messages delivered, timestamps, and much more.
  • Easy set up with simple, transparent pricing - With some other providers, new hidden SMS fees may come as an unpleasant surprise in the form of surcharges, cost recovery fees, or other costs—even charges for unused SMS! With RingCentral, you can rely on predictable costs with transparent SMS pricing  of just $0.0085 per message sent/received with no surprise fees or hidden charges. To help save you even more money, customers receive a free monthly allowance of messages and are only charged once that threshold is exceeded. To give our customers the most value, your allowance is pooled at the account level, meaning you’re not penalized for team members that use more SMS, and you don’t lose the SMS for those that use less.
  • One subscription for business communications simplified - Business SMS is included in our RingEX plans. Enjoy robust suite of business communication tools like advanced cloud phone system, online faxing, team messaging, video conferencing, file sharing and much more. Consolidate your business partners and streamline your budget while revolutionizing your communications with RingCentral SMS.
