Feedback Requests via SMS Text Message

Using GatherUp, you can send feedback and review requests via text message to stand out. Send text-only SMS (Short Message Service) requests or include an image using MMS (Multimedia Message Service) requests.

Feedback Requests via text are sent between 9AM-9PM in the time zone your business is located in.
