Respond to People Outside of Your Team

Leads, customers, and partners no longer need to join your Slack workspace to reach you there. Heymarket empowers them to text your existing business phone number or new designated phone number. They can also message in through popular messaging services, like Facebook Messenger. Your team will see the incoming messages in your Slack channel and reply from there.

SMS as a Slack Command

With Slack, send text message conversations with a simple slash command. Using the /heymarket command, you can kick off chats with customers and search through previous conversations—all without having to leave Slack.
