I have not had to communicate with Twilio support in the last 3 years but my past experience with them has been very positive. They replied to my previous requests promptly and kept me well informed to resolve my inquiries. With their documentation that's available, I hardly imagine why anyone would need to contact support since it's all there in a concise and easy to understand format. It would probably take you longer to type out a support ticket than to just open their doc websites.

The best part is that we don't need to call Twilio. Barely ever does anything go wrong. When do have to call regarding questions about billing or account settings, they are always happy to help. We don't feel like we are burdening them. Support typically has answers for us in the first call and we seldom have to wait for escalations.

Good interface to connect with different API systems for communication through different channel[s]. Twilio has good market coverage of the client across the globe for generating revenue through multi-channel approach. It works with [a] programmable feature that makes life easy for every user. Automated call is one of the advance[d] feature[s] of this tool.

I would say support is not the greatest at times. Sometimes, the turnaround on a support ticket can be 24 - 48 hours even if it is a tier 1 issue. Other cloud contact centers I have worked with can resolve some tier 1 support issues on that same day.

I haven't had to interact with them in a lot of occasions, but when I have it was with very deep specialized questions and the person that took care of me know the software inside out. They knew how to address my questions and help me solve my problem. They also have a lot of resources in their community.

I've never had to contact Authy's support. Of course, that's because Authy is so simple and easy to use that there hasn't been any need to. Authy correctly implements the time-based one-time password (TOTP) protocol, and becomes it conforms to the standard, it easily replaces Google Authenticator for your needs.

I give Authy a 10 here simply because it has been so easy that I have not had to reach out to support, either Authy's or a vendor. It just works and is one less thing to worry about for 2FA. I have not lost access to a resource secured by 2FA since switching to Authy.
