Oracle adds SMS aggregator to Responsys 

Oracle is adding an SMS aggregator marketplace to its Responsys B2C marketing platform.

The SMS Public Aggregator Network aims to allow marketers to find, order and manage an SMS aggregator inside Responsys.

According to the vendor, a marketer can send the SMS message to the aggregator through Responsys, and the aggregator sends the message to the carriers in its network. Oracle screens the aggregators first, and the platform allows a marketer to buy credits that can be used for any messaging, including app push notifications or email, as well as SMS.

Examples include program design, legacy program auditing, a loyalty optimiser, social listening, look-a-like modelling, behavioural segmentation, points concierge and digital auditing.

“Brands need a data-driven approach to solve loyalty program challenges. Our new products are a place for brands to begin that conversation before making a huge investment. Maritz’ solutions not only solve a wide range of problems, they are also proven to create value and provide actionable results,” said Maritz Loyalty product manager, Jamie Schwartz.

G Suite is an ‘A’ player tool.”
