Pros: - Customers LOVE sms

Pros: Ease of use. We up and running in no time. The Teckst was quick with the setup. Teckst worked great with HelpScout.

Cons: A little pricey if you don't used it daily. Price for a bundle of text should be an option or a price per text.

I used text at 2 different on demand start up companies.

Pros: I loved how easy it was for my agents to use, its ability to integrate into all of my team's tools, and the hands on fantastic customer service I always received.

Cons: This feature may have since been added but it would have been great to have the ability to mass text to our customers.

Great way to help our customers quickly!

Pros: Since adding Teckst to our customer communication plan, we've seen an increase in our response rate. Customers appear more than happy to have a quick chat via texting, as opposed to an email chain or talking on the phone. The integration into our current ticketing system has been great and allowed our team to seamlessly talk with our customers. In addition, the support provided by their team has been beyond accommodating and helpful and they are very open and receptive to all of our feedback.

Cons: We have been waiting for the feature release to send multiple messages at the same time. This feature has just become available, and we look forward to trying this out.

Teckst has been super responsive to our needs and always keeps us updated on the latest releases.

Pros: Their customer service has been really awesome. They are also quick to get us updated on the new features and overall any transitions have been painless. Super easy to work with them!

Cons: We've been using them for a while now and it's taken a little longer than expected for them to add additional features that are becoming more common in the SMS world. But I do think they've started to ramp up lately.

We recently started using this software. Our clients love to text us since it's faster than email.

Pros: Makes our job so much easier and we can keep track of client decisions (vs phone calls). We need clients to decide fast and emails sometimes seem to get buried in clients inbox. We hope our vendors start doing the same so we don't have to get on the phone to contact them.

Overall: Faster decisions with our clients.

Pros: All conversations are captured verbatim with auto-generated messages clearly differentiated from customer incoming texts and also agent outbound texts. That feature is vital for agent training, tracking customer history, spotting trends, First Call Resolution, and compliance-related issues.

Cons: A few "shortcuts" (for instances, inserting a time and date for a scheduled callback from the dialer platform) were custom-developed and slightly klugy (requiring agents to insert a "carat", then a short code). Later iterations continued to improve!

Overall: On it's initial small-scale test for confirming pre-scheduled calls to customers, we saw an 8.5% increase in decision-maker reach rates on those scheduled calls, and a 11.5% increase in sales conversion when decision makers were reached. The combined 22% lift in sales was a clear winner, and we are now looking to increase the automated use cases to include order confirmation, delivery confirmation, and more.

Great company but the people are better!

Pros: It was easy of use and quick to set up. Our customer support person at teckst was delightful, always available and very knowledgeable

Cons: The only thing we have in the form of a complaint (cuz there arent many) is the price. We would have liked the price to be slightly more competitive.

Pros: The tool is intuitive and provides our customers with real-time mobile support in ways that are more elegant than mobile chat widgets.

Cons: Real-Time Reporting is not yet at the level of some chat tools but is getting there quickly. We are able to embed it with tools like Domo to meet our needs.

Overall: Increased user immersion and longer use times of our products.

Easy set-up, simple to use, low cost, great customer support.

Pros: The customer support is excellent. We use the Zendesk integration, which made for the seamless addition of sms as a support channel to our existing support workflow.

Cons: Would be nice to be able to change automatic responses on our own, but customer support is more than helpful so its not a deal breaker.

Product was easy to setup with great customer support. I enjoyed working with the Teckst team.

Pros: The most valuable feature was the simple integration with our CRM system (desk.com). The integration allowed us to switch between texting and emailing our customers.

Cons: Cost of entry level offering. There was great value in the offering, but it was more than what we needed for our use case.

Team able to send and receive texts from the appropriate business line!

It works, and that's what matters. Great CX team as well.

Pros: Although it lacks a self-service dashboard, their CX team makes it so easy to get things done/updated/changed with a simple email. It works quietly and (from where I sit) seamlessly. Whatever they're doing to make this happen, two thumbs up!

Cons: There is no self-service dashboard for admin actions. Actions/triggers I expected to be in place (like auto-responders) sometimes were not firing.

Very quick and easy to get started.

Pros: Beautiful seamless integration with Zendesk. On-board in for the agents was equally easy. Customer support is always very responsive.

Cons: I love to see some sort of admin-dashboard to track billing/minute usage/self update logic. While always quick to respond to change requests, I'd like to have ability to review/change at a moment's notice.

Great team to work with. The product is also good and is moving in a good direction.

Pros: The support of the product is really good. The team that we have to help us with our needs has been great. Ease of use is really nice as well, it is easy to understand, implement and train on.

Cons: There is still a lot of room for the product to grow. They are allowing for texting within salesforce and trying to mimic that is a difficult task. There are some bugs in the product but that is the case with any new growing product.

Great product, easy integration, exceptional customer service

Pros: Teckst integrates extremely well into our Zendesk account. What originally drew me to Teckst's SMS solution versus others we looked at is that it really speaks to the hybrid nature of text support as a channel. What makes SMS so convenient for support is that customers can either respond right away like a chat or respond later at their convenience like an email inbox. Teckst speaks to each by offering both the email-like options and a more chat-like widget agents are able to pop out so they can have several conversations at the same time for real efficiency. We used a much less satisfactory solution before finding Teckst, and our agents were thrilled when they were introduced to the Teckst set up.

The customer service is exceptional. Our Account Manager is incredibly friendly and responsive. And she is just as much so now as she was when we first started with them all those months ago. She really makes it feel like we're a team trying to best optimize our solution and make sure it's working as well as expected and needed. The technical team of engineers is also on top of investigating any time we have an inquiry.

They also gave us early access to their Facebook Messenger solution, which works much like SMS does. It's quickly become one of our favorite channels thanks to their setup. It's been great being able to discover it as they are and to be able to give actionable feedback about the solution. Again, Teckst really makes it feel like you're a team.

Overall: Great integration. Great SMS and FBM support solutions. Exceptional customer service.

Our experience with Teckst has been amazing!

Pros: It has been really easy to use. I also feel like a valued customer with Teckts. Anytime I have any questions I can get a response to my emails in less than 10 minutes. They have been amazing to work with.

Cons: I would love Teckst to continue to develop more stats on texts to see how well it is performing from a company standpoint. For example response time, break it down by busy times, etc. However, with that said they have enough information for me to be satisfied at this point.

Great implementation and support team.

Pros: Plug and play - integrates easily into our customer service platform (Zendesk) and agents can respond to a text in the same fashion as they would any other medium. Our customers really like it as well.

Cons: At low volumes, the per unit price can be a bit pricey given their pricing model. However, will scale up nicely.

Pros: The functionality of the software with any/all Toll-frees to provide a text response to existing numbers. This has allowed us to create a contact base on an existing telco framework

Cons: Would like a more robust back end implementation - something that allows customers to do some of the customization and maintenance themselves.

Easy to use from day 1 of installation and they have the best service without being pushy!

Pros: The implementation is straightforward with Teckst providing a white-glove service. Integrating Teckst with a CRM (we were on Desk and now on ServiceCloud) allows for an agent to quickly learn how to handle SMS cases since they're already familiar with the case paradigm. The Teckst platform is fast and responsive, meaning that there is little latency between inbound and outbound texts through the CRM.

The use of emojis is incredibly impactful which allows us to provide empathetic service at scale.

Cons: Nothing major to mention! It would be great to have an admin dashboard so we could self-service, but I hear that is in the works.

Overall: We provide a faster support channel that positions us where our customers are: on their phone.
