ZipWhip to Deliver Text Messages to Business Lines
Apr 10, 2013, 10:59 AM by Eric M. Zeman
ZipWhip today expanded its cloud-based text messaging system to include business landlines. The new functionality means that companies will be able to receive text messages, such as service inquiries, from consumers rather than phone calls. The system also allows those business landlines to send text messages, such as appointment reminders, to customer cell phones. The tool is meant to help give businesses another avenue through which to communicate with customers. Companies interested in the landline text messaging system won't have to change their existing telephony provider, as ZipWhip's service is handled online.
