What is TextMeAnywhere?
TextMeAnywhere is a useful, powerful and simple two-way texting platform which uses a business’ existing phone number to meaningfully connect with their customers via text. They already have a business phone number that customers know and have likely spent countless time and money promoting the business. Does it make sense for customers to use some randomly generated number to text them? We don’t think so.
Why is texting a benefit for business?
Because customers want it and because people are already trying to text business numbers. 150 million texts per day are sent to landline numbers by those same people looking to buy products and services from businesses who don’t even know it. Increasingly, consumers prefer to text with businesses. In fact, 89% of consumers want another customer service option; 79% are unhappy with what’s currently provided to them and at least 78% of people who text wish they could have a text conversation with a business. Consider that. SMS is a rapidly growing technology and your business needs to adapt.

How did TextMeAnywhere come to be?
TextMeAnywhere was conceived by Brian Presement, CEO of Unite Communications. For the past 20 years, Unite has provided exceptional, customized telecommunications services to businesses. So, when their customers began to ask for a way to capture incoming text messages on their existing business lines, Unite naturally wanted to find a solution. Unfortunately, there wasn’t one service available which could provide them with exactly what they were looking for. In order to fill that need, Unite built the solution that customers demanded, TextMeAnywhere. We now offer a quality service to your business backed by Unite Communication’s dedication to customer service.
