Stop switching gears

You no longer have to toggle between different platforms when you need to text customers. Our integration creates customer tickets in Freshdesk to match your Textline conversations, and all text conversations are automatically logged on tickets. You can also use Textline natively within Freshdesk using the top bar widget or ticket sidebar widget.

“We got texting, we got live chat, web forms, Facebook, all of these channels that customers communicate with small businesses, and it becomes really overwhelming for a small business. We can offer all this to the customer, but how are we going to make sure that we're making sense of all of this information and being responsive, and getting the questions and concerns to the appropriate team members? Feeding it into a ticketing system like Freshdesk really amps it up and it makes sense of everything and makes it all seem so much more manageable from a small business standpoint.”

— Adam Butcher, owner of Fred’s Appliance
