Dedicated codes when you need them

We work directly with you to procure unique short codes. With a recognisable sender ID, you’ll be distinguished in the marketplace — and increase your speed to market. And when networks don’t allow specific short codes, we’ll map to a long virtual number automatically to make sure your message gets delivered.
  • Create custom codes that delight your customers
  • Maximise volume throughput
  • Increase message readability
