Easy to use

Overall, I like the software and I see myself continuing to use it as long as my customers give me positive feedback. The main concern I have, and a reason that may keep me from continually using this software, is the no short code option. My customers can remember a 5 digit number MUCH easier than a toll free 10 digit number.

Pros

Offers everything that I need for sending mass texts. I like that my customer can subscribe via keywords and that I can add them as a subscriber without having them text first!

Cons

I do not like that I can't use a short code instead of a 10 digit.

Hi Christopher, We are so glad you like our service and the Pony Express HQ dashboard, also thanks for the kind and detailed review. When you sign up Pony Express HQ, you'll get a free dedicated local phone number or a toll-free number. A ten digit number simply feels more authentic, economic and your customers can respond in a more personal way as opposed to just texting ?STOP? to unsubscribe. Plus, if you activate Forward Incoming Calls feature (which you should), it makes it easy peasy for a customer to call you back whenever they want. All the best, The Pony Express HQ Support Team

Its a good company

Its okay. The customer service leaves something lacking and I wish there was a direct phone number to a person.

Pros

I used previous companies, and due to the nature of my business they terminated the contract without warning. I appreciate this company's policy.

Cons

The cost of the credits is a little high.

Finally a low-cost texting service!

Pros

The low pricing, and a free local number.

Cons

The online format isn't the most user-friendly, and there is no apple app.
