What it does
This would be a mobile integration to verify and send back and forth sms to customers from earn
How I built it
Text2Save App is a Node App used to verify customers mobile number and email address. It would be used to send sms to the customers.
Challenges I ran into
Having Facebook account kit would limit us from skipping pop-up. Had to work around the customer experience.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We as a team were able to not only send sms to customers from Earn but also gave them an extra piece to be able to verify the mobile number while on boarding customer information.
What I learned
Earn needed help retaining customers. SMS is one way to retain the customers but in the process we learned that we need to change the strategy around retaining customers.
What's next for Text2Save
We will be giving away user experience screens for them to be able to easily integrate and improvise there current application.
