Near-instant delivery reports

A simple webhook integration lets you know when your messages are delivered (or failed). This is triggered by the receiving handset itself when the message is received – "fire and forget" is not a thing here.

One-way SMS in use

Swedish startup hub SUP46 uses One-Way SMS to inform their tenants when they have a visitor.

Sup46 logo

With over 60 companies residing at the SUP46 startup hub, their front desk was having trouble reaching the right person at a company whenever a visitor was at the front desk.

Before SUP46 integrated 46elks it was up to the receptionist to hunt down and notify the person who had a visitor. Now, everyone at the startups knows they'll get a text message if a visitor has arrived, and there's no need to download any app or use Slack channels to inform their members.
