High volume A2P Messaging with a human touch—built on toll-free

Your customers prefer hearing from you via SMS—it’s a low friction way to get in touch. But sometimes, an alert turns into a conversation. Bandwidth’s Enterprise A2P Messaging allows you to send high volume SMS messages to your customers with updates, notifications, or alerts and the flexibility to move to a phone call. All with less red tape compared to short codes and using the toll-free number you already have.

Get started faster

Whether you’re a business or an individual, we all hate having to wait for things. With A2P SMS, waiting is a thing of the past. Short codes can take weeks (or even months) to get setup, since you have to purchase them, provision them, and then get your campaign approved by every single carrier that your messages will pass through.

Bandwidth’s Enterprise A2P Messaging gets rid of all the red tape, allowing you to provision numbers within seconds, getting you started faster since you don’t have to get approval from every carrier — just us!

Use the numbers you already have, without porting them over

Short codes require you to purchase and manage new five or six-digit numbers. Instead of giving your customers another number to remember, A2P SMS Messaging allows you to text-enable your existing business toll-free phone number and use it to send those critical alerts and notifications via SMS.
