SmartURL® allows you to create, customize and track shortened URLs directly inside the SBT software. Depending on your configuration, you can receive detailed reports of a specific customer’s activity and track whether they clicked on a link and viewed the document you sent them or were redirected to a website.
Carriers recognize short URLs as being generated from either public or private sources. Text messages with short links created by public generators are often flagged by cellular carriers as spam and blocked from sending. Links generated by private generators such as SBT’s SmartURL® are not blocked – enabling you to reach more of your audience.
Your shortened URL can be used in SMS text messages, social media, and email. Take your short URL to the next level with a custom branded domain. Customize your URLs for company branding.

Carrier lookup is the process of checking a phone number to determine if it is a valid number and whether it is a cellular number or a landline.
When starting a messaging campaign, it is imperative to verify that the number you have is a valid cellular number.
Subscriber management is the process of monitoring numbers for deactivation. It is also known as right party contact (RPC) monitoring.
It ensures that the number you are sending a message to is the person you intended to reach. If a number has been deactivated, we notify you and remove that number from your database.
Short Code Provisioning
Short codes are special 6-digit or 5-digit numbers that are leased by carriers and used for sending text messages.
Short codes are used when sending high-volume two-way SMS and MMS messaging.
Solutions by Text is a trusted provider of short codes. Talk to one of our team to learn more.
Long codes and 10DLCs are traditional 10-digit telephone numbers dedicated to text messaging. 10DLCs support promotional and transactional messaging and are only available in the United States.
Deactivation Logic is the process of monitoring deactivated, ported, or reassigned numbers to ensure you have accurate records, maintain standards, and avoid violations and penalties.
To address the need to recycle mobile phone numbers more efficiently, carriers are required to report any changes within their network on a daily basis, thus, creating a much shorter window for recycling a deactivated mobile number and creating a live account.
Deactivation Logic™ protects you from any potential regulatory and legal violations by providing you with a layer of protection to ensure that a message is NOT sent to a recycled mobile number. This protection fully complements our dedication to compliance and the ever-changing landscape of the mobile industry.
