Benefits of


A2P 10DLC allows your business to send more messages faster and more securely than traditional methods. Messages are routed through a dedicated channel, which is not subject to the same filtering and throttling as other types of messages but security measures to keep you and your consumers protected. This is a major benefit for your businesses that need to send large volumes of text messages, such as those large volumes that use text messaging for marketing or customer service. This can help your businesses to reach your customers more quickly, efficiently, and securely.

Your business will have its own dedicated A2P 10DLC number. This helps to reduce spam and improve deliverability, because carriers can see that the messages are coming from your business as a legitimate source. It also helps to protect your business from the negative actions of other businesses. For example, if one business uses their A2P 10DLC number to send spam messages, their number could be blocked by carriers. This would not affect your businesses that is also using A2P 10DLC, unlike using shared short codes.

A2P 10DLC allows your business to use its own local phone numbers to send messages to customers. This can help to improve your brand recognition and trust. For example, your business could use its A2P 10DLC number to send order confirmation messages to customers, or a promotional offering on a new service. Using your own local phone number for these messages will make them more likely to be trusted and opened.

Your business's messaging does not want to be lumped in with other spam messages, and your customers want the reassurance that your communication with them is secure. A2P 10DLC helps to reduce spam by requiring your business to register its brands and campaigns with the TCR. This helps to ensure that all A2P 10DLC messages are legitimate and that they are not spam, securing your messages are sent and your customers have peace of mind.
