CHANNEL PARTNERS — CSF Corp. (Booth 561) on Monday rolled out its channel program that lets resellers and agents sell texting on toll-free numbers.
The product itself is called 8MS TeXT; it’s part of CSF’s 8MS Toll Free Provisioning and LCR Software Suite. Partners get to set their own pricing – even billing by text, if desired – and that means you can earn significant residuals, CSF said.
The 8MS TeXT portal also is rebrandable so resellers, master agents, subagents, independent agents or other partners may offer a branded interface to customers managing their own texts.
CSF further has developed APIs for provisioning and text delivery, which allows for automation and a customized user experience. Overall, 8MS TeXT is a turnkey platform, with provisioning, registry, text delivery, mediation (usage), API access, and end-user portal capabilities included.
“This is a great opportunity for resellers, master agents, agents, carriers and RespOrgs to profit from the new and exciting capability of texting on toll-free numbers,” said Frank Lauria, executive vice president of CSF. “With a whole new generation of customers that prefers to interact via text, and years of investment in branding of their toll-free voice vanity numbers, this new capability is not only logical but highly synergistic.”
