Text MessagingWhat is Business Text Messaging?


Business text messaging allows you to send and receive SMS & MMS messages with your business phone numbers. Traditionally text messaging has been restricted to a single phone number and the device that phone number is assigned to. For example, if you have a cell phone, you can only send and receive text messages from your cell phone number and only on that particular device.

Talkroute’s business text messaging allows you and your team to receive and respond to messages sent to your business phone numbers. This can be done by accessing our mobile app, online dashboard or text-to -email notifications. Now you can compose and respond to incoming messages and the sender will see your business number display on their end!
