To schedule message processing at a specific time before your message sendout.
The transport accelerator function is activated for your system. For further information, contact your customer service representative.
The message delivery process in your Customer Engagement Platform is divided into two phases:
- Phase one is message processing
- Phase two is message transport
Both phases always take place during group message sendout, regardless of whether the message processing is terminated or not.
If message processing is not scheduled at an earlier date, message processing and message transport are carried out in parallel during message sendout. The messages are processed and then transmitted to the recipient. When processing and message sendout start simultaneously, the sendout process takes longer.
Processing a message in advance enables accelerated message transport and timely message delivery.
