A Guide to Texting for Customer Service

SMS messaging has the power to take contact center engagement to new heights. But many companies only use texting as a means of sending notifications to customers en masse. What they don’t realize is that customers want to engage and many of their messages are getting unanswered responses.

Our SMS Starter Kit can help with that.

Customer-centric companies were 60% more profitable than other companies that do not focus on the customer.
