As of Summer 2022, smrtPhone does not offer a bulk texting option due to heavy regulatory requirements regarding obtaining and maintaining TCPA/opt-in documentation as well as compliance with A2P 10DLC guidelines.
We are, however, working to design and approve bulk texting where the opt-in is secured and stored in smrtPhone. Once enabled, you will be able to send bulk texts to the contacts who have provided this consent. For example, a real estate investor may want to let their network of buyers know when they have a property for sale. If those buyers provide documented consent, that would be a perfect use case.
We are at the legal and strategic phase, working with our carrier and legal team to ensure all bases are covered. Then we will move into design & development. We hope to have it released by end of 2022.
As an alternative, you may use your CRM system to send automated texts, based on triggers, using the smrtPhone SMS API (available for both Podio and Salesforce.)
