Have you spent countless hours in your app store looking for the best chatting app, only to find that you’ve basically wasted your time and money? Well you can close that app down, clear it, and put your phone down. Because we have the solution you’ve been looking for.
Here at SYNCRO we understand the industry and our customers, and before the concepts were designed, and the code was written, we knew what our customers wanted… NO APPS! So with that in mind we did our research online searching for things like sms marketing tools, text marketing, and a live chat app. Do you know what we found? Absolutely nothing that didn’t require an app download on your device. So we knew we just had to develop a program that was app free, and easy to use.
I could go into ALL of our features again, but I just did that a month ago! We’d rather our blog doesn’t get bogged down with the same content each month. So if you’d like to give it a read go here!
What we’ll do instead is look into why you should use live chat software that doesn’t involve downloading an app, and why.
The Cons of an app
Before I get into this list, I’d like to clarify that as software developers we fully support our industry, and understand that apps are important for the functionality and enjoyment of your device… they just don’t need to be used for everything! So please don’t hate us after reading this.
When it comes to looking for the right app, too much competition can be very frustrating. If you search for “chat programs” in your app store, you could be left with hundreds of apps to choose from. You might be thinking “why is that a problem?” As mentioned at the beginning of the article, you are now spending hours and perhaps money on all of these apps, and none of them could be what you’re looking for.
This point is important as most apps are able to be downloaded and used on many different platforms. The main problem with this is when an OS is updated the app can become outdated and may conflict with the new update. You are then left waiting for the developer to fix the bugs and release a new patch. Being that we develop software ourselves, we know how long those things can take. Did you also know that SYNCRO works without data? All you need is your SMS enabled on your phone and away you go!
Some of the apps may be free, but then you’re left with those pesky ads popping up every time you click a button, plus they are probably data mining your phone… To remove the ads, you will have to pay – so what’s the point? Then there are the apps that cost an arm and a leg just to purchase in the first place. Then if you don’t like it, you’ve already wasted your money, and most don’t offer a free trial.
The Pros of SYNCRO vs an app
When it comes to a live chat app, the biggest pro to SYNCRO is that it’s not really an app, in that it’s not in the same vein as a mobile app. With SYNCRO you don’t download a single thing to your phone, and it works without being connected to any data network.
The first thing we’ll do is offer you a free trial (again most apps won’t do this), and setup the account for you. All you need to do is add the simple piece of embed code to your website and BOOM, you have a working online chat tool right on your website.
When a user starts a chat with you it goes directly to your mobile phone as a text message, using your phones default texting application. You are then able to respond to that message just like you would if one of your friends or family were sending you a text message, from virtually anywhere I might add.
With SYNCRO it’s that simple. No time wasted looking for apps, no money wasted trying all these apps, just an easy simple solution that works on any SMS enabled phone.
If we haven’t caught your attention by now, feel free to give us a call and we can walk you through all of our features, and get you setup with the easiest online chat tool on the market, in seconds.
