How does it work?

Shared Short codes

You can use aql's memorable Short code 64446 as a low-cost solution. All you need is an aql account where you can choose up to 10 keywords to announce to your contacts. Your customers' SMS is required to begin with a predefined keyword such as 'info': eg. 'Text 'info' to 64446 for more information'.

Dedicated Short codes

We can provide you with your own dedicated Short code with unlimited keywords. You can either integrate our HTTP API or simply configure our system to email you with any inbound SMS text messages. You can also configure an autoresponse to any inbound message.


£50/month for up to 10 keywords.


£850 setup fee + £850/month.
