CHALLENGING MARKETING AND SALES INTERNSHIP AT SPRYNG
Spryng is an ambitious and accessible company, founded in 2006 and located in the heart of Amsterdam. As an SMS supplier for the business market, we deliver our services worldwide to companies in every possible sector, enabling them to reach their customers easily and efficiently.
Think, for example, of a message stating what time your purchase will be delivered at home, an appointment reminder from your doctor or dentist, a login or verification code to log in securely or a discount code from your favourite store during a sale. All this and more, is what Spryng does successfully for over a decade now! Companies have experienced through using SMS that processes are optimised, money and time is saved, and an increased turnover can be achieved. But there are also other products that can contribute to this such as a Voice solution, products for two-way communication and an Mail2SMS function.
In future we will be offering many more fantastic products, such as official WhatsApp and RCS. We are currently experiencing enormous growth in the Netherlands and internationally, which is why we see great market opportunities in the Netherlands and abroad in the near future.
