Having delivered over 1 billion SMS to date, we're often asked "what's next?".
SMS stands for "Short Message Service" but we think it's more like, "Simple Message Service". SMS is now a commodity. Whatever route your messages take, they typically end up at the major carriers for delivery.
So, our mission is two fold: To provide you with fantastic SMS APIs and unparalleled SMS messaging rates. By connecting to a variety of upstream carriers, SMS aggregators and utilising our own in-house network infrastructure we have some "weird and wonderful" ways to ensure your messages deliver when you want them to. All without breaking the bank.
ALXI (or "Alexi" as we say it) gets its name from combining the first two letters of the Greek numeral "ALpha" which has a value of 1 plus the Greek numeral "XI" which has a value of 60. How many characters are in an SMS? 160 :).
What We Do
1. Our SMS APIs
Our SMS APIs enable you to integrate messaging into your application within minutes and not days. Outbound messaging, inbound messaging or two-way messaging. The choice is yours.
SMS aggregators and higher volume senders can connect to us in seconds via the industry standard protocol, SMPP.
3. Web Portal
Smaller volume senders can upload messages in a CSV file format, or send one-offs.
4. Pre-defined Routing
We work with you to figure out what you need. Whether it's delivery in seconds or non-time-critical sends, we adapt our routing to suit you. Need a branded sender ID? Want to pay on delivered and not submitted? We have options.
Prioritise your messages so mission critical notifications are delivered first. By offering you multiple levels of priority, we enable you to "jump"" your own queue. Perfect for running marketing campaigns and sending time-critical notifications all at the same time, all via the same account.
We believe in knowing the outcome of every message sent. It doesn't make sense to keep on wasting money by sending to inactive mobile numbers. By providing you with delivery reports - and in most cases handset acknowledgements - you are able to analyse the quality of your data and strip out the bad stuff for next time.
