Businesses 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.
Zipwhip 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.
