Inventory Base offers a convenient SMS notification feature, allowing users to automatically notify tenants and clients about upcoming property visit dates and times. This feature streamlines communication, reduces manual follow-ups, and ensures all parties are informed and prepared for inspections, enhancing overall efficiency and customer satisfaction.


How to send out SMS notifications on your inspections

  1. Using the existing Notify Contacts feature (See Adding contacts and recipients) - you can enable automated SMS notifications via the Contacts window:

2. The Notify option for the Contact(s) must be ticked, and the Contact(s) must have a valid mobile number in order for the SMS option to be selectable. 

  • If you're booking an inspection for the same or next day, SMS notifications will be sent straight away.

  • If you're creating a new inspection, SMS notifications won't be delivered until the inspection is Assigned and Confirmed and will only send out to the Contact within 24 hours of the conduct date. 

  • If the conduct date is in the future, the Inventory Base system will automatically send the SMS 24 hours before the visit time. 


Cost of the SMS notification

Each SMS that is sent out costs 8p.

You can purchase credits in bulk which will reduce the price per SMS to as little as 4p. Please contact our support team for more help with adding your bulk SMS credits.

Low SMS Credits Threshold

As soon as the SMS credits on your account drop below the number you set, you will be sent an email to let you know that you are below your set threshold.
