A platform that tracks EVERY customer interaction

BoomTown, a CRM platform for the real estate industry, has agents that spend a lot of time communicating with customers via SMS text message—but those messages weren’t being automatically captured within their platform. BoomTown turned to Bandwidth to create a seamless user experience and capture more data for both reporting and predictive analysis.

An easier way for users to complete common tasks

With a simple SMS API integration, you can extend functionality to your users and have them complete common tasks via a quick text. No need to login, open a special app, or even spend time on the phone. Bandwidth customers have seen improved response rates, better customer interaction, and increased customer satisfaction after implementing SMS and texting API integrations into their applications.

A strong way to protect user privacy—and retention rates

Pet-sitting application Rover wanted a better way to connect pet-sitters and pet-owners, so that their users wouldn’t need to give away their personal phone numbers, and perhaps even more importantly—so that pet-owners would keep coming back to the application to connect with their pet-sitters. Bandwidth provides automatically generated private phone numbers directly from the Rover app, so that pet-owners have a specialized Rover-only number, and pet-sitters can get the latest on Fido when they’re on the go.
