  • Communicate quickly and effectively

    Some questions can be answered in a sentence or two and don’t require a whole voice conversation. Allow customers to get basic information straight to their mobile device in a short, simple text message. And with 98% open rates, you can be confident they’ll see it.

  • Manage customer queries online

    You won’t have to be tied to your desk’s landline or attend to incoming voice calls as frequently. You will be alerted of inbound text messages from your web-based portal. Set up automated replies, manage your contacts, and run campaigns online.

  • Don’t miss out on conversations

    Customers may already be trying to text your landline and failing to reach you. By text enabling your non-mobile phone number, they’ll be able to get through to you every time. They’ll always be able to initiate a conversation or reply to your outbound message.

Ways to use

Sending SMS is a great way to develop your audience and improve communication. Advertise the same phone number for both voice calling and text messaging.

SMS marketing

Reach large audiences in an immediate and impactful way. Encourage inbound SMS to grow your database.

Customer support

Rather than have customers wait on hold or call in to get information, make SMS an option to save time for them and your team.


Encourage your audience to send a keyword to your text-enabled number for a chance to win and to develop your opt-in list.

Appointment bookings

Send automated reminders via SMS and save admin time. Allow them to conveniently book in or reschedule using two-way texting.
