Seattle, WA, September 18, 2014 — Sending images and PDFs is as easy as sending an email, just attach and send. The Textstr gateway is built to be as seamless to standard texting protocols as possible but accommodates current work-flows, via email distribution. Connect with your customers via text, straight from your email.
Textstr was the first to announce email to text/text to email features. “And now we bring you photos, attachments and routing,” according to Andrew Metcalf, CEO. “Our studies are supporting the growth signals of SMS/Data as a whole. We are preparing initiatives to further capture, retain and serve the growing millennials (generation Y) one feature at a time,” he added.
In this set of feature updates comes text routing, ensuring delivery to the right individuals every time. Create your own buckets of text messages with your own distribution list. Have a sales department – create a sales specific text channel. Have a Support department – create a channel solely for support. Along with these updates comes a cosmetic upgrade; install one line of code, one time, and update directly from the Textstr panel. Through this latest feature, there is no need for reinstalling code ever again.
The technology used in the development of this feature creates a similar user experience a client is familiar with. The simple user interface develops trust with the site and sets the existing expectation of texting.
The company has developed its foundation in mobile first, pioneering the principle of direct communication through mobile SMS via company website. Using their safe data process as well as major interaction metrics, their expert team looks for ways to revolutionize communication between consumer and business.
