Besides, proper management of tasks, from the simplified ones to the complex ones, and every player is well assigned.

I think for mainstream ecommerce, the sites are super quick to spin up, easy to use, and fit the bill for most asks. The challenge can be when you need something more customized. I think they have the ability to basically do anything you need but they don't necessarily have the bandwidth to get it all done when you need it.
Read full review Pros You can add list of users just by uploading numbers CSV or by uploading detailed CSV. You can generate quick campaigns just like in email, save templates with URLs, send immediately, or schedule for a certain date and hour. They have analytics, shared, and private numbers. I like that it is super straightforward. You can make automated campaings that will be sent every time a new user joins a list. This you can do with 3rd-party integrations such as your own app or Zapier since ClickSend already has this integration. Super cheap and it's what I like most. You pay for SMS in bulk with really competitive prices. Most SMS companies want to charge by the number of users, and when you have 32,000 active users or +130,000 users it just becomes expensive so ClickSend is the SMS solution. In general, using ClickSend is quick and the learning curve for new users is flat since it's almost the same as an email marketing tool just for SMS and compressed.

Links sent through ClickSend are often marked as spam.

In general, support is good. Actually they usually write to you about things like when you upload your first contacts, send your first campaign, or when you forget to put the opt-out option. Of course, they are automated emails but it happens that if you reply to one of them a real support agent will attend to your case. If you have any doubt you can write directly to support by email. I'm not sure if they are using Zendesk or any other kind of program but they usually answer in less than 2 hours. Still, the option of an actual real-time chat is missing.

ClickSend is okay but limited in functionality as compared to
has more functionality and it is at a reasonable price point everyone. Apart from that support are the same for most platform and it is really great to have something that is easy to start using. Most important decision that someone have to make is what they want in these software.

They are very similar actually. What I like about Liftoff though is that we don't have to use 3rd party applications to do what we need which can add up super quickly. If we are in need of customer service, the staff is knowledgeable about everything since the functions are native functions.
Read full review Return on Investment The ROI is time. More time focused, less time distracted with a mobile device. Early days, however the customer survey and marketing campaigns will hopefully yield results. Customer adherence to appointments and/or rescheduling for missed appointments has drastically increased with the use of reminder and follow-up SMS options that normally wouldn't be used as often on a mobile device.
