Over the past 7 years, GeoPoll has built a network of connectivity across Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, and is directly connected to over 85 mobile network operators across these regions. These integrations allow GeoPoll to send and receive SMS messages seamlessly, at no cost to the end-user, and has enabled us to build our strong reputation as a surveying platform among our database of users.
GeoPoll who is an alumni of Nairobi Garage, has availed its SMS connectivity in 27 countries to clients who want to tap into the company’s integrations while using their own software to send surveys, emergency communications, and more.
GeoPoll’s SMS API is unique in that it enables both one-way and two-way messaging and includes shortcodes that make messages free for mobile users to receive and reply to – which is vital in countries where airtime credit is a valuable commodity.
Users of GeoPoll’s SMS API have multiple ways to initiate a one- or two-way SMS session with their desired audience:
Once a session is established, all messages received from a user will be delivered to the client until the session expires after a specified period of time. The number of messages sent/received, billing details, and more can be managed through GeoPoll’s portal.
Send Two-Way Messages To Africa
By using GeoPoll’s SMS API, clients are able to take advantage of GeoPoll’s pre-negotiated, competitive rates for message sending in countries that are often underserved by other providers, including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Senegal, South Africa, and South Sudan.
Geopoll has navigated regulations and completed time-consuming technical integrations with multiple leading mobile network operators in each of these countries, and now other organizations can leverage GeoPoll’s connectivity without going through the hassle of completing their own integration or managing their own shortcodes.
