Big news! OneReach has debuted a new shared short code, 70700, as an alternative to our existing long code numbers. Clients can choose a name for their short code program (ie “CompanyInfo”), which will also serve as their keyword.
End users who text in that keyword into the shared 70700 number will be directed to a client’s flow associated with that keyword. Clients can also assign several different keywords to the 70700 number and have all the keywords direct users to the same flow.

OneReach CEO Rich Weborg was recently featured in an article from the April issue of CRM Magazine, “Text Takes Precedence as a Customer Service Preference.” In it, he discusses the history of text messaging within business, the advances made in today’s text market, and best practices surrounding the text channel.
‘When texting started, it was expensive for businesses to get started, and it was heavily regulated,’ Weborg says. ‘What we’ve been seeing over the last few years is that it’s becoming flexible and cheap for businesses to set up. The price is so low now that any business can have access to [text messaging],’ he adds.
