Makes Communication with Staff Easy

Used weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2018-09-12
Review Source: Capterra

I've been using this software for the last couple years to communicate with our staff about events, policy changes, etc and its awesome! It's relatively inexpensive and easy to use and any time I have noticed any bugs or issues, they address my concerns immediately! I highly recommend them!

Pros
The simplicity is my favorite thing about this software! It really is easy to use and now that they offer an app, it's even more easy and convenient.

Cons
I wish I could send emojis in messages. I also wish that when sending pictures or gifs, it would automatically resize them to an appropriate size to send out...now I have to go out and do it on my own which can be difficult.

Easy to use for the marketing and communicating in an effective way that's affordable and easy to use.

Pros
The open rates of text message marketing make it a no-brainer for me. Additionally, I've got to say that it's really fantastic to be at a speaking engagement and have the room text a word into their phones all at once. It's as close to automated as you can get while you're standing right there in the room. I love it! And the attendees love it because they get whatever they're texting to receive right away. We live in a "right now" world and to deliver in that way is impressive to the attendees. They love it!

Cons
Slick Text has been a wonderful provider for my company. However, I don't like it when a text word is already taken. It has only happened once but it's just part of how text message marketing works.

Terrible service, refused to cancel our account when we no longer using the service

Used occasionally for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2020-07-28
Review Source: Software Advice

Terrible. Stay away! There are far better services you can use!

Pros
Nothing, the customer service was particularly terrible.

Cons
We sent a cancellation request over a year ago. They didn’t cancel our account and continued to bill us for 12 months. When we called to cancel for the second time they argued with us and refused to hear our complaint. The employee said (direct quote) “I’m not talking to you about this and there’s no management for you to talk to.”

I've been completely happy. So affordable that I have stepped up my plan as our followers grow. Money well spent!

Pros
I love that it is so easy to send a message and watch your followers grow. Great and efficient way to raise public awareness, with notifications and a way for our followers to take action. The Support staff make themselves available, are knowledgable and patient.

Cons
I wish it was easier to attack photos and links.
