How RCS will help your business?
In this digital age, customers have come to expect services and brand engagement, and in a way that the customer prefers, whether that’s SMS or RCS messaging.
RCS give brands the opportunity to interact with their customers instantly. This improved messaging will help businesses engage with their customers and build deeper relationships by providing an interactive platform previously only available for brands to reach their customers through mobile apps.
‘RCS will upgrade today’s business experience by enabling brands to send more useful and interactive messages. For example, a message from your airline reminding you to check in for a flight can now take advantage of rich media and interactivity to provide a full check-in experience, complete with a boarding pass, visual flight updates, and terminal maps on demand, all directly within the messaging experience. Businesses can also have a branded messaging experience with information about the business and the ability to share content.’ – Google
RCS vs SMS
- Expanded character set
- Expanded message size
- Expanded ‘status reporting’, with SMS you know your message is sent, RCS tells you your message is sent, delivered, read, and if the recipient is responding (similar to iMessage, Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp etc.)
RCS offers features that people expect from mobile messaging today, such as location sharing, group chats, high resolution photos. Below are two examples of what an RCS message can look like. Note the logo’s, message section ( which can include maps, video’s photo’s) and even call to action buttons at the bottom of the message.
