ZipWhip SMS platform Alternative (Limo Anywhere Messaging Manager)
- Posted By: Limo Anywhere
Twilio’s acquisition of Zipwhip, a text messaging provider, was announced in July 2021. In November 2022, Twilio officially announced that it would discontinue Zipwhip’s business texting service.
Twilio plans to shut down all functionality of the ZipWhip SMS platform on December 1, 2023. Limo Anywhere wants to make sure we are providing you a SMS alternative solution that seamlessly provides you and your clients with the features and functionality that you are used to with ZipWhip.
We have been working on this alternative ZipWhip SMS solution (Limo Anywhere’s Messaging Manager) based on feedback from some of our top Limo Anywhere operators.
Messaging Manager will be completely integrated into Limo Anywhere so you can manage and SMS your clients, drivers, affiliates, and employees all without leaving Limo Anywhere.
Some features that will be included:
- Designated to/from phone number for your SMS communications
- A space to manage and view your SMS threads directly in Limo Anywhere
- Click-to-SMS directly on the Limo Anywhere Reservation screen
- Group SMS
- SMS Templates
- And much more!
We expect our new design/style to be available to our operators soon. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to launch!
