Pros
I like how easy it is to use and how effective it is. Our members like how they can stay current with information coming to their mobile devices which is another way to simply stay connected.
The ease in which we have been able to onboard both additional staff as well as volunteers to utilize Clearstream has been wonderful. Nice refinement to create an affective and simple product.
The Customer Service has been outstanding always willing to help, quick response and willing to look into your situation to give the best advice to make the product work best for you.
Cons
Worrying about the cost impact of how long each message is.
We've only had one time where it took them an extended amount of time to reply. Apparently when a hurricane destroys the city your corporate office is in, it gives you a reason to not be open.
I can't get the emojis to work that is the only negative.

Increasing our reach through text messaging

Reviewed 5 years ago

For a while, our church has struggled with an effective communication strategy that includes text messaging. Clearstream has solved that problem for us. We have been able to automate much of our workflows and increase our overall engagement rate by incorporating text messaging into our on-boarding process for newcomers.

Pros

Clearstream is simple to use, their customer service has been fantastic, and for our church, the way Clearstream integrates with Planning Center Online has been a game-changer.

Cons

Some of the pricing tiers don't line up exactly with our needs. For example, in order to get more keywords or subaccounts, we also have to pay for more text messages, which we don't necessarily need. It would be nice to be able to have a bit more selection over which features we pay for.

Easy to Use

Reviewed 2 months ago

So far, it's much easier to use than the platform we used in the past.

Pros

I love the integration with Slack and that I can directly reply to a client text through that medium.

Cons

Since there is already a preview window on the right side, It seems redundant to "View Preview" before sending. It would be nice to just send.
