Launched 2015

Whistle allows customers to communicate with businesses through SMS Text Messages and p2p text messaging. Businesses can easily manage and respond to messages, facilitating open dialogue.


A ten­digit number is issued, a regular phone number with your local area code. Phone calls to your Whistle number are forwarded to your main line.

Customers continue their regular messaging behavior - Rather than develop an app no one will use, your customers will continue the behavior they already engage in hundreds of times a day.

Staff manages and responds.
Whistle can be accessed by your entire team through any major web browsers. Respond and manage incoming text messages through Whistle’s simple chat interface.

Start a conversation - Initiate non­invasive text messages for reminders or for the customer’s ease of reply.

Message Archive - All messages between the customer and business are saved and archived for easy accessibility, transparency, and accountability.

Staff communication - Whistle serves as an excellent central hub for managing internal communication. Messaging dialogue with staff is no longer miscommunicated, and easy to revisit.
