With our online console, you can pause, stop, cancel or reschedule your jobs at any given time.
Inform comes with its own management interface, where you can set-up, manage and monitor your campaigns in real time. With our comprehensive reporting, you will get valuable insight into how your campaigns are performing from start to finish.
Customised sender fields
Inform allows you to customise your sender field and choose from the following options:
Boost your brand recognition by making your from address your company name instead of an anonymous mobile number
Long coded number

Send CALL to 12345 to trigger a call back from a call centre agent
Send PAY to 12345 to trigger a response with a smartphone link for mobile web payment
