LeapXpert launches SMS

LeapXpert adds SMS to its conversational solutions

“This is an exciting development. SMS is still a major communication channel for many customers. It is one enterprises have to include as a conversational solution,” said Dima Gutzeit, CEO and Founder of LeapXpert. “We enable our customers as they deliver human, interactive conversational engagement for their clients. Our addition of SMS to FMOP gives our customers more flexibility when it comes to the channels that they can use to communicate with their customers.”

Businesses are increasingly turning to messaging to communicate with customers – especially in the Covid-19 pandemic. The ability to converse with customers and clients over the channel that the customers prefer is a key component in the human, customer-led engagement that many enterprises are developing as part of their digital transformation programs. Previously the challenge has been to ensure that these conversations are visible to business-critical applications like compliance and monitoring tools, CRM and business-driven analytics tools.
