Texting Buyer’s Guide Webinar for Higher Ed
Along with driving initial enrollments, engaging and retaining students has become the most critical initiative for higher ed. And while many colleges and universities want to implement SMS/texting, many don’t know what to look for to immediately see a return on their investment.
In this brief session we’ll arm you with '5 Critical Evaluation Points’ you need to think about when considering a texting solution. Those include:
- Ease of use: The best practices and features for bulk and two way texting.
- Ease of deployment: Off the shelf, versus customizations that require developers.
- Ease of onboarding: How users can immediately text with UI based and native integrations.
- Cost structure: per message and seat fees.
- Support: what to look for during onboarding and ongoing.

What makes us better
TrueDialog offers more features than any other SMS provider available through our turnkey, enterprise-grade platform or our brilliantly designed API.
Enterprise-grade software and deliverability
Unlike many of our competitors, TrueDialog has built direct carrier connections that eliminate the middleman and provide our customers with two huge benefits: improved deliverability by reducing potential points of failure and reliance on third parties, and significantly lower prices than our competitors.
For over 10 years, TrueDialog has built our five-star rated, cloud-based SMS texting solution for large-scale businesses. Our platform features an ISO 9001 database, 99.9% uptime, direct carrier connections, and dozens of innovative features.
Truly Native CRM Integrations
Our SMS integrations are truly native - no pop-ups, no additional windows. Send messages from inside CRM platforms like Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, Marketo, Hubspot, Five9, Oracle’s Eloqua, Campus Nexus, Velocify, and more.
For developers, TrueDialog helps you code less and move faster. Our fully-documented RESTful SMS API with advanced pre-built features enables you to send millions of SMS text messages with just one API call.
Android and iOS mobile apps
Pre-built Android and iPhone mobile apps with full administrative controls. Mobilize your call center agents to engage in true one-to-one dialog at scale.
Schedule campaigns anytime using our Flex Schedule capabilities. No need to use third-party scheduling — ours is built in along with dozens of other included features.
With our full suite of calling APIs, you can easily deploy click-to-call, bridge calls, conference calls, recorded audio, and call forwarding.
Our proprietary “TrueDialog” feature
Send mass text messages and then effortlessly engage in one-to-one conversations at scale. Fully satisfy your customer, even when several agents need to get involved. By combining long code and short code messages into a single thread, multiple agents can chime into the same texting dialog to create a seamless customer experience.
TrueDialog maintains its own duplicate opt-out information in an ISO 9001 cloud database, an added safeguard to help our customers avoid accidentally texting a contact who has opted out. This extra layer of protection adds expense for us but gives our enterprise customers peace of mind they stay compliant. To achieve this same level of protection with other SMS APIs, developers would have to custom-build it.
