How to Adopt a Real-Time Communication Strategy , sheds new light on how businesses can start real-time, one-to-one conversations to communicate faster, build better relationships, and grow faster.
“Customers want to engage with businesses on their terms, when and where they want. Real-time communication is fast replacing delayed, spammy emails, and cold calls,” said Andrew Kimmell, co-founder and CMO for TextUs. “From live-chat and video cloud conferencing to enterprise text messaging, the world of business communications is changing fast. We’re sharing the real-time communication strategy to help businesses better engage with customers and teams.”

The Age of the Seller is over, as are the days when the business controlled the communication process.
TextUs outlines how real-time communication maximizes the speed and responsiveness of integrated text, chat, social collaboration, and voice technologies for sales, marketing, and services teams.
