Overall Satisfaction with TextMagic

We are using textmagic for our communication and sell to our customers. All our services are based using SMS exchanges. It is the most important tool of my company. Sometimes messages need 20 [minutes] to reach the destination. The support is incompetent and not polite, each time you need something it is impossible. I am totally stuck with them because the phone number that I pay each month to textmagic is on of all my communication. Using Twilio and Smooch is 200% times better than Textmagic.
  • Chat window
  • Simple API task
  • Connection between other services ERP, CRM and Slack.
  • Textmagic is a tool for kids who want to SMS chat.
  • The possibility to change the SMS provider to Twilio or others. It is not legal to forbid that but they find a way to bypass that.
  • It is slow.
  • Some message are really slow.
  • The non-advanced user of my company can use it, but I implemented a setting with Slack and Twilio and after a very short explanation it was perfect for all.
It was a mistake to select textmagic.
It is perfect for simple chat. But there is zero interoperability to use other suitable tools so I would not recommend this tool for professional usage. For the support as soon as you have an issue it is not their system that is the problem but the carrier and a few minutes later the bug is solved. The support is lying to their customers.
