How does Postscript compare to other SMS platforms?

Let’s face it: Any of our competitors are a good place to start. But when you need a purpose-built solution to do SMS right, you turn to Postscript. 

So... who is Postscript for?

Brands on Shopify or Shopify Plus

Brands who don't want to annoy their customers and ruin SMS

Brands who want to maximize ROI through highly targeted messages

We've tested other platforms and the others simply fell short. The segmentation, integrations and ecommerce strategies are great, but the continued support we've received throughout our company's growth is unparalleled.
