TrueDialog overview

What is TrueDialog?

Now in its 10th year serving customers, TrueDialog is a cloud-based, enterprise SMS text messaging platform for business, higher education and developers. Built to support large enterprises, the platform features 1-to-millions mass texting along with a unique "TrueDialog" feature which enables team-based, 2-way personalized texting conversations at scale. Built for 1000's of call center reps. The platform seamlessly transitions between Short Codes and Long Codes to continue SMS conversations for exceptional customer service. SMS Integrations with Salesforce, MS Dynamics, Marketo, Hubspot, Oracle Eloqua and others.

TrueDialog's SMS API has 47 endpoints with pre-built features to save developers time and money. Unlike many SMS API's, TrueDialog's is less taxing on their customers systems as a single API call can send millions of messages whereas other SMS API's require an API call for each message. This, combined with direct carrier connections results superior delivery speed and reliability.

The platform's proprietary "TrueDialog" feature similarly offers scalable multi-user 2-way texting capabilities out-of-the-box, enabling multiple contact center agents to engage with customers within threaded SMS conversations. Other specific SMS features then include shared Short Codes and Long Code support, plus SMS surveys, coupon engines, MMS, built-in URL shortening, longer concatenated text messages and more. TrueDialog also facilitates landline texting and a dedicated VoiceSuite for deploying click-to-call, bridge calls, conference calls, call recording and call forwarding functions.

Other pre-built platform highlights include a free, multi-channel emergency alert system for sending instant mass notifications across not only text, but voice, email and social networks. TrueDialog also keeps a copy of SMS texting data within its cloud-hosted ISO 9001 database, maintaining searchable CDR logs if customers request. Message opt-out lists are duplicated "SMSafe" to help ensure compliance. Drill-down reporting tools are available for generating custom metrics and analytics on SMS campaign performance and call center productivity. Mobile support then comes in the form of pre-built Android and iOS apps with tiered administrative controls for remote account management, along with full mass texting and 2-Way texting functionality.

Hands down the BEST SMS Platform and Support you can find

We are able to send millions of text messages without delays in processing and get real time reporting. Its a no brainer.

Pros
The Customer Support is hands down the best I have seen at any company, usually getting responses within an hour. They are continually innovating and making tweaks to make the product better and faster. The welcome feedback and can make custom changes for you very quickly.

Cons
Nothing bad to say about the software. We haven't really tried any other providers to compare them to but they by far exceed my expectation in terms of customer service.

Keeping touch with customers. Being able to send text message to a wide range of people and since it saves your messages, you are able to keep track and reply to them.

Pros
This is the best text messaging software we have ever used. Will not only help us keeping track of our conversations to our customers, it will also make it very easy to manage and reply each of these texts. The system is so simple and easy to use, it will keep you from making mistakes. Using this software also helps you keep your customers engaged with your business by allowing you to keep in touch with them. Take your SMS strategy to the next level!

Cons
Could use some improvement on the CRM service. Sometimes it also "jams" and takes a while to either receive or send messages, although messages are always "sent" and "received", don't expect it to be received straight away.

3Seventy was easy & professional to work with. It was a relatively seamless cut-over!

3Seventy gave us a streamlined method of text messaging, where the replies to the texts are also stored in Microsoft Dynamics CRM and the original sender is notified of the reply.

Pros
3Seventy's SMS plug-in for Microsoft Dynamics CRM has helped to streamline our Admissions Coordinators texting prospective students. It not only allows you to send the text and store it on the CONTACT record, but if a reply comes back, the coordinator is notified by email. This is means that there is no more sifting through hundreds of incoming text messages and trying to match up the CONTACT with the correct coordinator (original sender) ' it is done automatically. This is a simple and cost-effective method to send (and track) text messages.

Cons
The initial implementation requires a strict 160 character text message. Some of our users would prefer a more variable field that would allow a longer message to be sub-divided into multiple text messages.

We found replying to incoming prospects via text reaches more prospects and is time efficient

More sales! All software takes some time to learn use effectively and customer support is almost always available, we have been able to add users quite easily and select area codes we prefer for different markets we are in

Pros
I have a dashboard and I can see what all of our agents are doing on a daily or weekly basis, review their history and notes. This product provides efficiency and ease of use that allows us to reach more leads than using the telephone with fewer sales agents
