Text-enable Your Business Landline

Send and receive text messages using your business phone number and communicate with your stakeholders in a convenient and accessible way.

What is landline texting?

A text-enabled landline is a business phone number that has been enhanced with the ability to send and receive text messages, enabling you to use your existing phone number to engage with business stakeholders via SMS. Whether you’re responding to customer inquiries, confirming appointments, or sending important updates, text-enabling your landline allows you to do it all with ease.

Text-to-landline technology uses a separate system for handling text messages, so there is no impact on the voice calling function.
