“Would you like to have Coke with it?”

Event-triggered messaging also called behavior-driven messaging is a web application feature that involves sending automated emails or SMS messages on a pre-determined schedule, or based on application events. Messages can be triggered by any event, from customer interactions to changes in data and everything in between.
Where is Event-Triggered Messaging Used?
Behavioral or event-triggered messaging is useful across various business and industries, here we bring out some of the most common ways organizations use it:
Creating Workflow Applications: Triggered messaging is widely used in building workflow applications that can help to automate business processes. For example, A project proposal report often requires separate approvals from managers in various departments. With a workflow application, that proposal report will move from manager to manager for approval automatically.
Automatic Communication with Customers: When customers complete a form or sign up for an account, this can automatically trigger an event sending a confirmation email to the customer.
Alert Business and Officials to Problems: Using event-triggered messaging, executives and managers at the organization can be notified about any time a sensitive business issue occurs, such as customer account cancellation.
Report Distribution and Sharing: Many companies set up their reports to run on weekly/daily intervals. With the help of event-triggered messaging, they can automatically distribute these reports to various department heads without any human involvement.
