Notifications in GSMtasks. What are triggered-based notifications and how to create new notification templates?

Trigger-based SMS notifications

Triggered push notifications are awesome! Why? You can inform your customers when your employees start and complete tasks, are on their way, and much more. You can edit the notifications as you please and even boost your marketing with them.


Notification use cases

  • Notifications

    Thank your customers for their order

    Send an automated SMS after a customer has placed an order! For example: "Hi, Mary! Thank you for your purchase and for supporting our business. Your items will arrive soon!" This will make your customers feel appreciated and they might even recommend you to their friends.

  • Notifications

    Let them know when the package is on the way

    Triggered-based notifications will go out when the driver is near the customer! For example: "Hello, Mary! Your package is on the way and will arrive at xxx. You can track your order here: (HTML link). If the time is not suitable for you, feel free to contact us and we'll rearrange the delivery!" This will give them a chance to meet your driver on time or even change the pick-up place when needed.

  • Notifications

    Make customers your influencers

    Send a follow-up SMS after the delivery! For example: "Hello, Mary! We hope you loved our service and order from us soon We love seeing pictures of our happy customers with their new products! Tag us in your picture of you and your new product using the following hashtag: #examplebrandname" All this can easily be done with GSMtasks notification templates! Let your imagination go wild!
