Sent.ly – Local phones. Global Reach.

Sent.ly lets merchants set up a localized SMS gateway on their Android phones. Setting up a Sent.ly account to sending the first SMS using the simple HTTP API takes less than 5 minutes. Sent.ly also allows for SMS replies that can be handled automagically – allowing for full customer interactivity. Expanding operations – no sweat, just add more phones as needed, and Sent.ly scales up.”

Small-scale e-commerce operators have not had a reliable and scalable means of interacting with their customer base. SMS is the medium of choice given the “greater-than-100%” mobile penetration everywhere in the world. Existing solutions involve using SMS gateway providers, but these usually come with set usage quotas and are specific to a country / region. These solutions need to be re-worked when operations expand to other countries and do not provide SMS local reply capability without minimum usage quotas.
