Our company (Design Tree Maintenance) has been using Texty Pro for several months now. The system is virtually flawless and when I did have a problem I received help within just a minuet or two after sending an email about my issue. Excellent service! Excellent Product!

I had no clue about this company or the fact that our company used TextyPro. At first mention, our account had been suspended due to a payment issue. Not having a full grasp of the situation, I reached out to support with an SOS. I quickly got a call from David who was very kind and patient with me as he listened to my ranting of the whole matter. David then went over every aspect my problem in detail and offered helpful suggestions which assisted me in resolving the whole issue. Best Customer Service EVER!!!

We've been using texty pro for a full year now! We operate a lawn care business and use this service for coordinating with customers. It works great! Both using a web browser and the phone app. Support has been responsive immediately when needed.

the customer service and platform are fantastic. I will choose a company first every time who has a genuine representative on the other line! Thank you David and the TP team!

Mandi Jenkins

The set up was instant. I did get a notification that it could take up to 24-hours to send and receive texts from our existing, web-based phone lines, but it took about 24 seconds. There was an immediate issue, which had me scared, but a representative was live (a half-hour before their normal hours of business) within a minute and kept me on the chat while their team of engineers untangled it, which took about 25 minutes. I was blown away at the live service and how ready their engineers were. So far, very impressed.
