Likelihood to Recommend

OpenMarket

OpenMarket is well suited to support enterprise SMS at scale, with a wholesale and flexible solution. Their provisioning team is great in terms of response time, and support for their products is deeply rooted in industry and technological understanding of SMS. OpenMarket would not be well suited for small companies just starting to test the waters with SMS in a low barrier way.

At first, we created a voting system (for events and conferences) which allows people to vote with their smartphones, tablets, and laptops. The problem that we have found - very weak and unstable WIFI signal during the events. That means that a large part of attendants could not easily vote using their smartphones and internet. We needed a new solution which could compliment our voting via WIFI. A great solution was SMS voting. Since our system was used by users across the globe, we needed an SMS solution which:--- Could support inbound messages in a lot of countries.--- And would not cost a fortune.With Nexmo both our requirements were fulfilled. We allowed voters 2 voting options - via WIFI or SMS. Adding an SMS feature increased the number of registered users by 30%.

  • I like the delivery speed, it's very instantaneous. As soon as the delivery status changes on the website, the message gets delivered. The rates are also cheap and affordable.
  • The accuracy of the services and the non-stop supportive team.
  • Simple API, easy to integrate with existing notification functionality in your Laravel apps.
  • Ease of implementation. We needed less than one month to go live.

Cons

OpenMarket

  • OpenMarket does most things well. One thing they are missing is MMS capabilities on text enabled long numbers.
  • The portal for entering shortcode program briefs is kind of clunky, it would be nice is account managers took the Word document and imported it into the tool for clients.

  • The dashboard is very difficult to use, also the dashboard doesn't have details about the use (real-time use).
  • Deliverability is not good for some countries e.g. Indonesia.
  • I would recommend building a better and easier GUI.

Alternatives Considered

OpenMarket

As a top tier aggregator, OpenMarket requires contracts to utilize their services, whereas other SaaS providers allow users to signup and start sending within a shorter amount of time. The benefit of using OpenMarket is the relationship, and the SLAs in availability they maintain. Other aggregators offer equal levels of service, so there are other shops in town selling the same thing with the same reliability.

Nexmo is the best platform in the industry for sure. We don't use all the features that the API provides but we are really satisfied with the ones we use. We are sure this is the best solution in the market if you need to solve the communication in real time with your customers.When we have to build a new website we are going to support the solution with Nexmo.
