Powered by NumberAI, Sprint Smart Messaging responds to customers who text a business’s landline to provide answers to simple questions like business hours and product availability; it can also handle more complex tasks like take food orders or set appointments; this streamlines customer conversations and allows staff to handle other business-related functions.

Sprint Smart Messaging features:

Business Messaging Businesses can now use their landline or wireline telephone number to receive and respond to text messages from customers through mobile phones, tablets or desktop computers.

AI-driven Auto-Response Sprint Smart Messaging uses AI to learn about a business and auto-respond to customer questions instantly. Businesses will be able to answer customer inquiries 24/7, ultimately saving on labor costs by sending automated responses to commonly asked questions.

Call Rescue Statistics show that 62 percent of calls to small business are left unanswered. Sprint Smart Messaging automatically texts the customer back, re-engaging them and increasing thier interest. With Sprint Smart Messaging, 50 percent1 of customers whose call didn’t go through are saved from going to a competitor.
