Very slick demo / product. Have you thought about other forms of messaging (on top of or instead of SMS)?
Ted HansonMaker@ted_hanson · Founding Engineer @Avochato
@hariananth Thanks for the feedback! Are there any other forms of messaging that you would find compelling @jobr?

Chiming in as an Avochato user for the past 3 months. I launched an app three months ago, and we've been using Avochato to communicate with ~100 or so beta users who can easily send us a text to give product feedback or send a picture of a bug. The Slack integration is awesome, and the new product refresh is too - makes handling these communications a breeze. And people really like being able to just shoot us a text whenever they have a thought (as opposed to email which can feel more formal).

Check out this great new tool for communicating with customers via SMS. It integrates with Slack's new threading feature, which makes it really easy to handle all your text convos right through Slack.

@dyah10 Thanks Dom! Slack's threading feature is great. Our customers are really enjoying the new integration

What happens if I call the number? 😲
Christopher NealeMaker@_neale · Co-Founder @ Avochato
@jevinsew incoming calls will notify your slack channel and start a thread. If it's a mobile number, you can text back immediately from your channel, or click a link in the thread to call them back through your web browser, using your webcam microphone (just like in a google hangout). We also make it easy to setup call forwarding from your avochato numbers to phone trees or personal phones, and provide links to any voicemails left by your customers.
