Text-Connect™ is used by businesses and organisations across the UK across a wide range of applications.
Although the applications are many and varied, our clients use text messages when they need to communicate with clients and staff 'Right Now', wherever they might be.
Text-Connect™ delivers near instant communication directly to and from staff and clients even when they are in areas of low or intermittent mobile network coverage. Text messages need only a tiny amount of connection they can get through when voice and data communication is impossible.
