The features & benefits of notifications

Person chatting

Get your messages noticed

90% of text messages are read within 3 minutes, and that number only goes up over time. Whether sending an appointment reminder or a service alert, text messages help get your message out.

Credit card

Reduce lost revenue

Missed appointments are a big source of lost revenue for businesses. Sending reminders over SMS helps to reduce lost revenue from missed appointments.

People chatting

Keep your customers up to date

Alert customers to service outages, changes to their accounts, or possible security breaches with text message alerts that they see in a timely manner.

Cell phone chat

Reach more customers

Calling your customers every time there’s an issue or to remind them of an appointment is time consuming and requires lots of resources. Sending a text message allows your business to reach more customers faster.
