ClickSend is our reliable and confident business communications application, with quality services and affordability. The application has intelligent mail support, which is remarkable in analyzing the intelligence level of all stakeholders. Besides, ClickSend supports barcode scanning, which simplifies most of our operations. We make chats and other communication means efficiently, even though the use of mobile devices. Lastly, ClickSend has job management specifications, so effective in the proper running of the firm.
  • Messaging is one of the perfect job that ClickSend does in our company.
  • Bar code scanning is another procedure, that automates most of our activities.
  • There is proper job planning and management, ensuring the productivity of every employee is well felt.
  • ClickSend lacks email monitoring, which is critical.
  • ClickSend has no call recording or file sharing, also a big miss.
  • Lastly, ClickSend lacks contact database, which means, the information details of clients are not well captured.
ClickSend supports live chats, where instant messaging is done for both formal or informal discussions. Besides, proper management of tasks, from the simplified ones to the complex ones, and every player is well assigned. The option of bar code in this application ensures there is the automation of many tasks and reduces paperwork.

Bussi is a ride-hailing app in Mexico City with more than 60 routes, 32,000 active users a month, and more than 138,000 registered users. To communicate with our users, we use a variety of services including ClickSend. We believe nothing is more direct than SMS so if you have something important to communicate and is urgent SMS is your choice. We usually send 2 kinds of campaigns with ClickSend: general/promotion campaigns to different lists of segmented users (segmented per route, area, kind of engagement) or for sending automated SMS, for example, a welcome SMS or a discount. This kind of action lets us be closer to our users and it has shown to be effective as the retention increase and the churn decreases.
  • 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.
  • Definitely the UI--I mean you can do practically everything and so fast but still the general design feels a little bit old and they haven't renovated in the last 2-3 years that I have been using it.
  • Add Paypal. Currently, ClickSend uses only Stripe, and Stripe trend to block credit cards if you have a lot of transactions processed by Stripe (in different services). It may be a bank issue with Stripe in my country, but still, your users are affected and it's a pain not to be able to have more payment methods. Paypal is just fine and it usually doesn't have the kinds of problems that Stripe has.
ClickSend is not for activation account SMS. For that, you can use services like TWILIO. Neither is it for having continuous communication with your users, like a kind of chat over SMS (becomes expensive). Better to try to route your users to a common customer communication tool like Facebook Messenger or something.

It is definitely suitable for outbound marketing campaigns to already registered users. Some exmples would be to send a communication annoucement, send a general offer to all your database of users, to send offers to a particular segment of users by filtering them, automated marketing campaigns based on users who join lists (users that just register and you send 1-5 welcome SMS with tips and tricks on how to better use your product, SMS to users who have an issue with payment method so they can check quickly with its bank, automated SMS with offers each time the user makes a trip, a buy, or gets more engaged with the product).
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.
