Startup Ideas: SMS Platform
September 13, 2023

Stone Labs is excited to share a new startup idea that has caught our attention! We have come across a request for the development of a comprehensive SMS platform with two key features.

The first feature focuses on leveraging the power of WhatsApp as the primary medium for sending SMS messages. They envision a system that will direct all incoming traffic to their platform and seamlessly deliver SMS messages to recipients via the WhatsApp platform. Before sending a message, the system will intelligently determine if the recipient’s phone number is associated with WhatsApp or if they have an active internet connection on their mobile device. If either condition is met, the message is delivered; otherwise, it is rejected. To ensure transparency and accountability, the system will include a robust delivery reporting mechanism that provides real-time updates on the status of sent messages.

The second feature aims to improve the user experience by providing a convenient and efficient way to access SMS content. The parties hope to develop a system that automatically opens SMS messages containing links that begin with “www.” or “https….”. This feature would allow users to view linked content directly within the platform, eliminating the need to switch to a separate browser or application.

To bring this innovative project to life, Stone Labs proposed a comprehensive solution. With our extensive experience in developing complex IT start-ups, our team of skilled developers and engineers will work closely with the individuals to understand their specific requirements. We will use our technical knowledge to design and implement a state-of-the-art SMS platform that fulfils their vision. By combining our proven track record in custom software development with their ground-breaking concept, we believe this project has the potential to disrupt the SMS industry and provide users with a seamless and user-friendly messaging experience.
