Enda Mulchrone, General Manager at Hastings remarked “We provide our customers a number of communication channels, including Voice, SMS & chat and with the advent of GDPR it was important to think carefully how we could manage the recording of customer data in a compliant manner. Solgari’s solution allows us to provide all the digital channels – including SMS – while automatically addressing GDPR compliance requirement for data controllers. The ability to run our outbound SMS campaigns and customer updates on Solgari’s cloud platform along with our other communications was a key factor in moving to the cloud.”
Rob Hennelly, Product Manager at Solgari added, “Our R&D roadmap focuses heavily on commercial demand and our customers using SMS with 3rd party vendors have consistently asked us for a solution that would be compliant, feature rich and available as part of the overall Solgari integrated offering. The release of our SMS module and the immediate client uptake is further evidence of the significant market movement towards digital and the desire to offer all potential communication channels to customers.”
Vance Harris, CTO at Solgari noted, “The release of our compliant SMS service module is the start of a sequence of significant product releases we will be announcing over the next two quarters. The market is demanding solutions that can deliver all the communication channels, compliance, reporting and analysis through the cloud as a SaaS solution and we are delivering on that vision.”
