Textlocal Overview

You can do so much with the Textlocal API! Textlocal is an easy-to-use platform
for sending and receiving mobile and SMS messages, making it a great avenue for
businesses to communicate with their customers. Here are a few examples of what
you can build with the Textlocal API:

  • Automate SMS marketing campaigns to customers
  • Notify customers of special offers and discounts
  • Send reminders and appointment confirmations
  • Create location-based notifications
  • Receive two-way communication from customers
  • Integrate text alerts into other applications, like business workflows and
    CRMs
  • Send mass notifications during emergencies
