Understanding Text-to-Landline

The SMS Revolution with SMS Factory



While mobile phones dominate our communication landscape, the significance of landlines, especially for businesses, remains undeniable. In 2020, 40 percent of US households still relied on landlines, a drop from the 90 percent in 2004. But as texting becomes the preferred mode of communication, with 90% of adults owning a mobile device, businesses are left wondering: “Can our landlines send and receive texts?”

What Happens When You Text a Landline?

If a customer sends a text to a landline without the right technology in place, that message goes into the digital void. It’s a missed opportunity for businesses. However, with SMS Factory’s advanced solutions, businesses can both send and receive texts via their landlines. This two-way communication, coupled with integrated features, enhances customer interactions and drives business growth.

Why Text-to-Landline is Essential for Modern Businesses

The ability to send SMS to landlines has been around for nearly a decade. Its integration with technologies like VoIP has made it indispensable for businesses. Those not adopting this technology risk losing market share as customers increasingly favor texting.
