AT&T Business Messaging can enhance mobile communications within virtually any enterprise, but it has distinct advantages for the following use cases:

Field Service

As an SMS-based mass texting technology, Business Messaging can provide quicker open and response rates than phone calls or emails. It’s ideal for utility workers who need to quickly address customer issues and relay messages during outages.

Business Messaging provides fast, responsive two-way communication. It can be particularly useful for helping mobile workers and dispatchers adapt to changes in scheduled deliveries or operations.

Business continuity

Text messaging is often the last mobile service to fail in areas of poor reception or network congestion, making it an ideal backup option during emergencies. With the ability to reach any SMS-compatible AT&T device, Business Messaging can help employees exchange information with the office.

Use Business Messaging with existing applications.

When it comes to implementing Business Messaging for mass texting, you have two options: access it via AT&T’s web-based Business Notification Center—or combine it with applications your organization already uses. Messaging protocols (SNPP, WCTP, SMTP and TAP) allow for easy integration with most enterprise messaging applications. For example, you can use SMTP to send emails that appear as text messages on employee devices.

Enjoy a user-friendly setup process.

Business Messaging is easy to set up and use:

  1. Provision AT&T Business Messaging on employee devices.
  2. Log in to the AT&T Business Notification Center or point your application to one of the Business Messaging addresses listed in the Frequently Asked Questions.
  3. For users who want to use the Business Messaging app on Android or iPhone, download from your app store.
  4. Type a message, select recipients and press send. The Business Messaging gateway quickly validates recipients and securely delivers the message to AT&T mobile devices.


Business Messaging offers two options: a bulk pricing plan for groups of users or individual plans for each AT&T phone number. For more information, see the Business Messaging Product Brief.
