Increase sales and improve customer satisfaction of your potential customers by offering them the possibility to track the availability status of a desired product in your shop by SMS.

Offer search subscriptions to receive information to your customers, prospects & visitors

  • An SMS search subscription makes it possible to send new information about a flat search, a vehicle search, a job search or an online auction in a personalised and automated way. The subscriber selects their own individual search criteria. The system then sends the relevant SMS messages directly to their mobile phone.
  • In addition, as the operator of an online shop, you can give your visitors the option of receiving a message when a certain product is available for order. This will help you to avoid loss of revenue and increase sales. Another advantage of the SMS search subscription: you do not need a separate app or software for this. Last but not least – text messages can be easily received on any mobile phone even without WiFi.

«The more than 32,000 users of our customer portal are very satisfied, as eCall delivers the text message quickly, as the system has built-in redundancy and is absolutely reliable.»
