SMS Library Solution with GatewayAPI
A number of Danish libraries are currently using GatewayAPI to send SMS messages to borrowers. GatewayAPI’s solution is linked to Cicero Library Management System, which is a library system used by most of the libraries in Denmark.
Get the attention of the borrowers with text messages
Ongoing surveys show that over 94% of text messages are opened. This is due to, among other things, that mobile users are used to the fact that the SMSes they receive is of high relevance. Text messages from libraries also have high relevance and thus contribute to maintaining the high opening rate.
Additional value can be created by sending text messages when:
- Material is ready.
- There is news about the material the user has ordered.
- The deadline for returning material is getting close. Here, the SMS typically contains instructions on how the loan can be renewed e.g. via link or SMS.
- The deadline for returning material has been exceeded
By using SMS in the above examples it is ensured that borrowers receive relevant information in their busy everyday. Many will probably agree that especially the deadline for returning material is important to keep track of.
