Less Messages, More Smile

Text messaging (SMS) is a convenient way to access showing instructions or get appointment updates. Since instructions can be long, cell phone carriers sometimes split messages into multiple separate SMSs, confusing agents and cluttering their phones. Now agents will begin receiving shorting SMSs from ShowingTime!

How can short text messages benefit agents?

  • Up-to-date Showing Instructions
  • Secured Access Details
  • Single SMS for Each Appointment Confirmation
