Mobile payments are becoming increasingly popular around the world, with the volume of transactions in North America alone predicted to more than double in the next five years. Consumers of Blackthorn.io can now submit Paylink transactions to customers by SMS using a shortened URL, allowing them to complete transactions faster and more successfully.
“SMS is a crucial communication channel for any business. Most individuals prefer text messaging as their choice method of communication, but it’s hard for businesses to incorporate this channel into their day-to-day processes,” said Blackthorn.io CEO, Chris Federspiel.
“Textey’s team built a Salesforce app that’s easy to install and configure, lowering the barrier to adoption.”
“The company contributes to our larger vision of bringing easy-to-use apps with immediate ROI to the Salesforce ecosystem,” Chris continues. “You shouldn’t need a doctorate in Salesforce administration to install and use a Salesforce app. Textey, as with our other apps, removes that friction.
Our customers will benefit from adding SMS to their Blackthorn.io app stack through higher returns on donation campaigns, greater event attendance and engagement, and by receiving payments on their customer transactions faster.
“The apps from Blackthorn.io are among the highest-rated on the Salesforce AppExchange, and our interaction with the company’s team has validated the industry’s high appreciation for its solutions.
Our mission at Blackthorn.io is to empower businesses to use SMS as a primary communication channel with their clients, communities, and customers.
Textey powered by Blackthorn.io has a bright future ahead of it, and we are excited about it “Clint S. Lee, Textey’s founder and CEO, stated.
