Don’t get hackled with promotional texts- SMS Sunami is here
SMS Sunami’s eureka moment was when the founding team worked with their previous product, Street Smart. They wanted to hack the system of curating hyperlocal offers from local merchants. Street Smart prevented them from scaling up & limited them to focus on particular geographies. They were forced to find a solution to automate the entire system of curating offers from various sources. This need gave birth to SMS Sunami.
