Frontier-Texting-web-app_dental-use-caseBusinesses using Frontier Communications for their voice calling needs will now be able to send and receive texts with consumers thanks to a new partnership with a Seattle startup.

zipwhipZipwhip today announced a new deal with Frontier that will add texting capabilities for businesses that want another way to communicate with customers. Zipwhip’s technology allows companies to use their existing landline number as a way for people to send text messages about everything like scheduling an appointment at a dentist’s office to placing an order at a restaurant.

“Frontier’s partnership with Zipwhip to add texting to their full base of business phone lines represents the first significant shift in what we believe will become the new norm for consumer-to-business communication-text or call, one number does it all,” said Zipwhip CMO John Larson.

Zipwhip was the first company to bring cloud-texting to your desktop via your mobile number, and did the same for business landlines in April 2013.

    I think it makes sense for businesses to add this on to let the customer choose their method of communication. Call, social, email, and now…text.
