CloudContactAI

CloudContactAI is a great platform for communicating with customers and sending them deals. Through CloudContactAI we inform customers about good deals, business updates, and to schedule meetings in bulk. We don't have multiple physical locations, but the clients functionality is a great feature that enables users to create different sub accounts to manage multiple store locations, departments, or clients.

Twilio Programmable SMS

Twilio SMS is fantastic for anyone that wants their marketing or product to be more omnichannel. Meaning connecting with your customers on more than just email and social media which have become standard these days. On top of that, SMS marketing has insanely high open rates and due to that solid conversions, so it's a great tool for testing for direct e-commerce or selling things online to see if it produces an ROI.

Twilio Programmable SMS

  • Reading, Marking, and Archiving messages require far too many clicks.
  • Both Twilio and Salesforce are to blame for this: Configuring how messages are routed should be much simpler. Admin users still receive all text messages in their inbox. This requires time-consuming sifting and sorting.
  • Twilio does not have message previewing. I wish I could hover over an unread message and read its contents without having to open and read the message.

Usability

Based on 1 answer
I give CloudContactAI a 10/10 because it solves all of the issues I have on just one platform. Before I discovered CCAI, I was using multiple platforms to manage all of my communication. This started to become an issue--I had so many tabs on my browser that it began to be counterproductive. CloudContactAI simplifies communication.

CloudContactAI has offered their total support throughout the entire process. They helped me onboard and establish my organization. Whenever I've had a fast, simple question, I was able to consult their documentation page or chatbot on their website to find the support I needed within just a couple of minutes.

Alternatives Considered

CloudContactAI

CloudContactAI provides SMS, email, and voice all on one platform so that you don't have to switch between accounts. These other software solutions offer all of these features but on separate accounts. Without CloudContactAI, I would have to use SimpleTexting, SendGrid, and Google Hangouts to leverage the same functionality that CloudContactAI offers on its one platform.

Twilio Programmable SMS

Bandwidth is 2/3 the price of Twilio for sending SMS messages. However, we decided to simply go with the market leader because it was the safer choice. At our scale, the increased developer effort outweighed the marginal increase in costs due to the per-SMS pricing differential. Overall we feel confident we made the right decision.
