It is no longer news that the Nigerian Communication Commission
mandated the Telecom operators in Nigeria to implement the
Do-Not-Disturb (DND). While this is a laudable approach to the menace of
unsolicited SMS in Nigeria, it has also created a lot headache for
Nigerians especially business owners, religious organizations,
associations and NGOs. Not left out are individuals that need to invite
their family members and friends to events such as wedding ceremony,
birthday parties and other social functions.
It our pleasure to let you know that we have developed and fully
integrate a lasting solution to this problem that has been plaguing Bulk
SMS in Nigeria.
The Provision of Corporate Route
To cater to the need of individuals and corporate organizations that
have express permission to contact phone numbers on DND by SMS, a
provision has been made to deliver their messages via the Corporate
Route. Corporate Route allows you send SMS to phone numbers on DND
provided you have the expressed permission to do so. It is our pleasure

How does it Work?
Additional options are now available on the SmartSMSSolutions’ Send
SMS page. Find below what each option stands for and how to use it.
Option1: Use Basic Route, exclude phone numbers on DND
This is one of the most powerful options available and if not the
most beautiful option of them all. When you send SMS with this option,
you message is sent to all the recipients using the Regular Route. After
which, as in option 2, DND phone numbers are returned and the units
returned to your account. And here is the interesting part, the DND
phone numbers are then forwarded via the Corporate Route.
Delivery to the phone numbers on DND via the option is 3 – 4 minutes
behind those not on DND. This is due to the time it takes to get the
real-time DND status of the phone number from the operator, get refunded
for the phone numbers and re-process the message via the Corporate
OPTION 2: Use Corporate Route for all the phone numbers
This can be described as the POWER SHOT. This sends the message to
all the phone numbers via the Corporate Route. This might be done once
you have confirmed that all the recipients are actually on DND or you
just want to be very sure.
Delivery to phone numbers on DND via the Corporate Route is INSTANT with this option.
How much does it Cost to Use the Corporate Route?
Delivery via the Corporate Route is currently at 2 units for a page of SMS.
