Pros: I liked how easy it was to set up. We had a meeting about sending out reminders and then after a quick google search, we found it and were up and running fast.

Cons: I didn't like the pay per use. We looked for a subscription service and found one that fully furnished everything for a fraction of the cost. So we went that direction.

Easy to use once you get used to it

Pros: Easy of use and pricing. We've migrated over from a different provider and the development effort was fairly low. We've had no major issues, no performance problems and support was always helpful.

Cons: As we deliver messages on a global scale with multiple fees I would love to get price for deliver on a per message basis, which we don't have yet.

System does the job very well and gets us leads fast

Pros: The ease of setting up a new message and then scheduling it to be sent out is very straight forward and easy to teach other members of the team.

Cons: When I am running my numbers to find out the performance of each send vs the cost and return on investment. It's very difficult to be able to calculate these figures without spending a lot of time. It is a bit of a nightmare.

Overall: We were able to generate new leads on demand and boost sales for the company. It enabled us to send out time sensitive offers with ease.

Pros: Easy to send bulk messages to all of my contacts. Easy to add contacts in bulk through import process.

Cons: The recent changes to the software appear to have made it more difficult to do some of the things I did previously. In particular not being able to select which groups a contact is in from the contact card is a real nuisance.

Easy, professional and high quality service

Pros: MessageBird is a well-developed service and knowingly outperforming its competitors. It covers an important scope and thus the in-house team have performed well to cover the reliability, security and thus quality of its routing/communication. the API has an insightful documentation, guides and support for developers and my company have had no issues implementing and using the service.

Cons: It seems that some people have had delayed experiences or have experienced a lack of promotion or communication from the CEO, personally the only improvement I can see is developing more features. -- there's also an issue with the form not submitting due to a lack of linkedin data pulled through (job title and organisation).

Pros: You can send messages effectively. The developer pack seems good. My developers are looking ot interface. Summary information on usage is good.

Cons: The export functionality is really poor. I supply security officers. I want to see what time officers text to book on and off. The columns move about in the export making analysis hard. Hours tidying the data before being able to move forard. The length of time information is held on the webpage is limited. If i wanted to look back over several months, this is not possible.
The search functionality is limited.

Overall: Easier communication with the team of over 100 officers.
