RCS Business Messaging

What is RCS?

RCS delivers a next-generation messaging experience combined with global reach and rich features like chat apps.

RCS is an IP-based messaging service that runs natively on handsets. Users don’t need to download a messaging app, as RCS comes pre-installed on more and more handsets as their default messaging app. In comparison to the 30 year old SMS standard it breaks 

open the boundaries of messaging which used to be reserved for chat apps. Extensive features for users and rich functionalities like analytics for businesses make it the go-to messaging service for the future. Enabling true, branded two-way communication.

Trusted messaging

Safe and trustworthy

According to the Universal Profile standard, businesses need to be registered and verified before they can send and receive messages. This makes messaging safer for your customers and your business more trustworthy. 

Businesses can use their full brand name instead of a random sender ID. In addition, RCS Business Messaging allows for customization of colors and logo for your brand.
 

  • Verified business checkmark
  • Full brand name
  • Customizable color + logo
  • Blocking of unwanted brands
