Spotlight on MMS for Insurance Industry

In an earlier article in this blog, we discussed how MMS is more than just a broadcast medium.  Indeed, MMS messages such as photos and video can also be received so long as you are using a compatible gateway such as ours here at Thirdscreen.

It was interesting to read a recent article titled, “4 Industries that can make better use of SMS (and how)” by Mobile Marketer which went into further detail of SMS use cases for banking, healthcare, insurance and automotive.

Interestingly, Mobile Marketer also cite the Insurance use case for MMS that we covered in our earlier article – that is, “Using SMS, customers can send picture messages directly to agents when filing claims.”

Of course, Mobile Marketer is referring to MMS as opposed to SMS, but as far as the use case is concerned we couldn’t agree more.
