What is RCS (RBM) SMS?
RCS stands for Rich Communication services. It is an upgraded form of SMS. With RCS, businesses can bring branded, interactive mobile experiences to their end-customers, in the form of interactive messages with- images, GIFs, videos, suggested replies and carousels.
The biggest positive with RCS vis-a-vis SMS is that it is a 2-way communication (interactive in nature) between the sender (bot) and the end user, unlike A2P SMS which is typically one-way (sender to user).
The business to end-user RCS messaging is termed as RBM (RCS Business Messaging).
What is RCS Agent?
An agent is a conversational entity that interacts with users by sending messages and reacting to users’ responses. Users interact with agents via a RCS-enabled messaging app, such as the Android Messages app, on their devices.
The ‘RCS Bot’ reference in some later sections is identical to an RBM Agent. These two terms are synonymous.
What is the different types of RCS (RBM) Agents?
RBM Agents are generally classified into 3 categories:
OTP Agents – OTP (or One-time-password) agents are used to send RCS messages for authenticating an account. They are also used in those transactions which are time-sensitive and of immediate nature
Transactional Agents –These are used to send notifications & information to existing customers about a business. They also provide relevant information for a customer’s existing services/products/editorial & media content
Promotional Agents –These agents are used for sending sales/marketing and promotional messages to new or existing customers, about new or existing or services or products with the intention to sell, x-sell, up-sell now or in the future

What is a Template?
A Template is a predefined set of RBM UI elements e.g., a Rich Card with suggestions which can be used as a base for formulating messages in your campaign to the target audience.
Once a bot is created, the aggregator can create multiple templates against the bot and use them for running campaigns. You can add images, videos and suggested actions for your template.
- There are three types of templates supported:
- Rich Card Stand-alone
