When you want SMS for your business, you often have a specific use case in mind. One common use case is two-factor authentication (2FA). You can use 2FA to add an extra layer of security to your application. For example if you run an e-commerce store, you may want to prompt users with a code sent to their phone to ensure it’s really them. Another use case is promotional SMS. Offer special deals and discounts to top customers or attract new business. You might also want to use SMS to send alerts. Tell customers when a bill is due, a package is on the way, or some other issue.
For any of these use cases, you can build your own service using Mitto’s APIs. We offer the ability to create do-it-yourself solutions for the SMS use cases described above, and many more. If you have the time, money, and developer resources you can get an incredible, customized solution that matches your exact specifications. But for many companies, time, money, and resources are limited. That’s where pre-built integrations come in.
Mitto strategically partners with companies whose product offerings benefit from the addition of secure, reliable SMS. The result is a low-cost, stable solution for you. Some of the benefits of using a pre-made solution include saving yourself development time and money. You get a stable, tested secure solution that works right away. In some cases, a pre-made integration can be set up without you needing to know how to code. Some integrations are available through a graphical user interface (GUI). Who knows? Your dream SMS integration might be a couple of mouse clicks away instead of hours of coding.
Another great thing about a pre-made integration is you can focus your development resources elsewhere, like your own product offering. Finally, pre-made integrations can help you with proof of concept connections between applications before you build something more elaborate. And it may turn out that you don’t need the more elaborate version.
You can find out if Mitto offers an integration that suits your business needs by navigating over to our Integrations page. Enter the name of the product you want to integrate with in the search bar.
