    Tighten Your Financial Security With SMS

    With so many large cyber attacks happening, the trust you have from your customers is paramount to their loyalty. Luckily, texting is the perfect way to build trust and prevent fraud. SMS is perfect for two-factor authentication, allowing you to add another layer of security to your account creation and authentication process. It can help reduce identity theft by giving customers a one-time-use pass code that can be emailed or texted directly to them. As an added layer of security, members can get a fraud alert on their phone if suspicious activity is detected in their accounts.

    Provide Better Customer Service With Texting

    The problem with telephones is not only can calls take ages, but your reps can only handle one customer at a time! Texting strikes the perfect balance between being more casual than a phone call, while being more attention grabbing and getting 750% more responses than email, all while being 60 times faster to carry out customer service. Reps can also handle multiple text conversations at the same time from the comfort of their computer.64% of consumers prefer texting over talking on the phone.

    That’s why landline texting is a game changer, giving you the power to text-enable the same business phone number that your customers already call into. Instead of placing your members on hold every time they call in, your service reps can reply to text inquiries right from our platform’s web-based inbox, saving time and allowing them to help more customers at once and still provide personalized, one-on-one service.

    Texting for Financial Services in Action

    Katch is an award winning software company, best known for enabling brands to engage and monetize visitors to their website. Katch handled messaging for one of their clients, an insurance company, who would consistently receive a large volume of emails from their customers. But due to the sheer number of messages, a disproportionate amount of time was needed to organize, categorize, and respond to inbound messages, leading to low response times and missed opportunities.

    Katch wanted to test the efficacy of texting by using it to manually send messages such as enrollment deadline reminders, insurance quotes, and account information. After experiencing positive results, they decided to apply Trumpia’s automation tools to this system. This gave them a much faster turnaround, and allowed them to send the right messages to the right customers at the right time, all automatically.

What Clients Are Saying About SMS For Financial Services

    “Trumpia’s Auto Campaigns are far more efficient, especially since there is currently only one team member here who’s in charge of the platform. It also makes the time in which we re-market to the individual instant, rather than waiting a full day to re-market in a bulk send.”
