Team-to-One Dialog…at Scale

There is a huge difference between our TrueDialog texting solution and basic 2-way texting, which limits administrators to text conversations with only a single staff member contributing to the dialog at a time.

TrueDialog has more advanced features designed to meet the needs of larger educational institutions. Our SMS texting software enables team-based 2-way texting that creates threaded, multi-agent, team-to-one conversations at scale. So your staff can all contribute to a single threaded texting conversation with your students, parents, teachers and staff.

TrueDialog Features

VoiceSuite

Multi-User, Threaded, Many-to-1 Dialog

Students and parents dislike being transferred from department to department. With TrueDialog, multiple staff members can contribute text messages into the same texting “thread.” This provides a win-win experience; a faster, more complete response for students and parents and increased productivity for your school's staff members.

What Makes Us Different

Professional Administrative Controls:

Contact center directors and managers can monitor response times, language and grant access to different agents at various levels of functionality: mass texting, individual texting and view only. When a rep leaves your organization, you keep the phone number, contacts and all text conversation history to maintain uninterrupted customer service.

Our Unique “TrueDialog” Feature:

Agents can handle multiple customer conversations simultaneously and multiple agents can chime into the same texting dialog with a single customer to create a seamless, threaded experience to fully satisfy your customer even if several agents need to get involved. Our platform is built for this level of dialog at scale for large enterprises.

Enterprise-Grade Software & Deliverability:

Unlike many of our competitors, TrueDialog has invested in building direct carrier connections which eliminate the middleman and provide our customers with two huge benefits: 1) it improves deliverability by reducing potential points of failure and reliance on third parties; and 2) it allows us to price our service significantly lower than our competitors.

TrueDialog SMS Mobile Apps:

Contact center agents can manage accounts directly from our desktop platform or from your company's white-labled text inboxes on each agent's mobile phone using our Android and IOS Mobile Apps.

Experience:

Now in our 9th year of serving customers, TrueDialog has built the perfect solution for enterprise-grade SMS texting with our Five-Star Rated cloud-based platform featuring an ISO 9001 database, 99.99% uptime, direct carrier connections and dozens of innovative features developed through years of carefully listening to our customers.

Extensive Pre-built Features:

Dozens of features have already been built for you like our unique TrueDialog Team-Based 2-Way Texting, Contact Center SMS Feature, Scheduling Engine, Admin Controls, SMS Safe Dual Cloud-Database, Landline Texting, Multi-Channel Alert System, Surveys, Click-to-Call and many more. No programming necessary with our full platform. Why build what we've already built?

SMS API:

For developers, we offer a fully-documented RESTful SMS API with advanced pre-built features. Our SMS API campaign endpoint lets you send millions of SMS text messages with just one API call. Save time. Code Less. Move Faster.

SMSafe:

TrueDialog maintains our own duplicate Opt-Out information in our ISO 9001 cloud-database for extra protection against accidentally texting a contact that has Opted-Out. To achieve this same level of protection on other SMS APIs developers would have to build this capability themselves. This is a significant cost to us, but is greatly valued by our enterprise customers who are serious about compliance.

Integrations:

Seamlessly integrate with information systems & CRM platforms like Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, Hubspot, Oracles' Eloqua, Campus Nexus, Velocify and others.

Free Multi-Channel Urgent Alert System:

Send instant Mass Notifications and Alerts with SMS Text and Voice. Urgent Alert System included at no cost to our enterprise customers.

Drill-Down Reporting:

Use our prebuilt reporting or build your own custom reports with our report endpoints. Drill-down into metrics, response rates and analytics on campaigns and also get admin reports for staff and call center agent productivity. Our CDR logs are stored, searchable and retrievable for compliance and to easily research text message history.

1-to-Millions:

Our campaign endpoint lets you send millions of messages with just one API call.  Other providers require one API call for each message sent.  Stop taxing your systems and bandwidth and get faster delivery.

VoiceSuite:

With our full suite of calling APIs, you can easily deploy click-to-call, bridge calls, conference calls, recorded audio, and call forwarding.

Need CRM and Marketing Integrations? Look No Further.

TrueDialog's cloud based platform has an API first approach which allows our customers to seamlessly integrate with leading CRM and Marketing Automation platforms like Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, CampusNexus, Eloqua, Hubspot and Velocify.
