Why It Matters


Answer Guest Text Messages Instantly

Don’t put guests on hold or make them wait for an email response to a question. Text messaging is instantaneous. Send an immediate reply when guests text questions like how to turn up the heat or whether late check out is possible.


Save Time

Texting can be faster and more efficient than answering guest questions by email, phone or face-to-face conversation. Use the time you’ll save to focus on other aspects of your business.


Burnish Your Business

Texting shows that your business is up to date, tech savvy and on the lookout for the latest ways to accommodate guests. Don’t get left behind.


How It Works


Receive A Dedicated Number

We’ll assign you a dedicated phone number with your local area code so texts don’t go to your business or personal phone number. Or transfer an existing number of your choice to receive texts.


Set Up Your Team

Create your Team Page to make sure each team member sees every text message and reply. Set up office hours and an automatic out-of-office message so guests know when they can expect a reply.


Use the Team SMS Inbox

Team SMS Inbox saves all guest messages and staff replies so your team knows that questions have been answered. Besides speeding up response time, it prevents double responses, improves customer service and stores all messages and responses so you have a complete record.
