As opposed to 5 digit short codes, long codes have 10 digits and function as virtual phone numbers. Long codes are typically used by businesses as a call to action in their promotional messages. Users can use the long code to respond with SMS messages. Nimbus technical experts will set up and handle the long code services on your behalf or train your operators to manage it.
Owning a long code has several benefits. You remain sole owner of the number and have unlimited sub-keywords and keywords to control inbound and outbound messages. You can capture data as well as port it to your database for better analysis. Overall, you have flexibility in campaigns and better control. Long codes work internationally and are, in this respect, better than short codes that might be country-restricted.Submit Enquiry
