Why Should I Use Guaranteed SMS?
Guaranteed messaging is our core service offering at directSMS. It is used to deliver mission critical and time sensitive SMS messages. It is also used wherever a high quality of service is called for. We use the highest quality direct connections to all the telecommunications networks in Australia to ensure that your SMS messages are delivered on time every time.
When you submit your messages for delivery, our systems will search the mobile number portability database for each number and submit the message to the appropriate network. Our systems use a fully redundant setup to ensure that should one of the direct connects fail or become congested, messages can still be delivered. This ensures that every message is delivered on time. Every time.
You will want to use Guaranteed SMS if you will be using SMS for the following applications:
- Appointment reminders
- System monitoring
- Two-factor authentication
- Urgent notifications
- Just in time marketing applications

Why Would I Use StandardPlus SMS?
StandardPlus messaging is directSMS’ budget SMS offering. It is used to deliver non mission critical and non time sensitive SMS messages for bulk customers. We use the highest quality local and international routes to ensure your SMS messages are delivered in the most cost efficient and timely manner possible.
How Is directSMS Different?
StandardPlus SMS is the predominant grade of service out in the market offered by many suppliers and resellers because it presents high ROI in bulk applications.
Unlike many competitors who use the cheapest available routes, we use the most reliable routes, with multiple layers of redundancy to ensure your messages get there every time. Our gateways actively monitor the available routes 24×7 to ensure the best, most reliable route is selected for each message. We won’t be bouncing your messages through 3rd world countries to minimise costs.
And as an absolute failsafe, the systems will use our direct connections (used to deliver Guaranteed SMS traffic) to deliver your traffic when all StandardPlus routes are congested or down.
You can use StandardPlus SMS if you will be using SMS for the following applications:
- Bulk SMS marketing
- Non-urgent reminders
- Non-urgent notifications
