Having spent the last couple of weeks evaluating numerous SMS service providers for a project that I am working on for one of my clients, TextLocal as come out on top by a million miles. We needed a provider who could not also provide a flexible and fully featured API, but also be able to provide a nice and functional user interface that would be suitable for in house marketing teams to use. TextLocal came out on top on all points. Their API is absolutely superb. Fully featured and provides a full interface into their SMS application. I had no issues getting up to speed as the documentation is great and the API was easily accessible from a C#/.NET application. The system has all the functionality required and more importantly is extremely quick.The really big positive for me was the exceptional level of customer service. Nothing was too much trouble every time I spoke to them, and even nicer is the fact that you can email them or call them on the phone. This is a service dramatically lacking from other providers. A lot of other providers are very big on the "Sell" when you first sign up for a trial, but are unable to provide some/ if any after sales service and support. One (who I won't mention, but is a large UK provider) couldn't even be bothered to get in contact with me after numerous emails and calls. This is definitely not the case with TextLocal. They looked after me from the point of signing up and I have to say it was like a breath of fresh air to get this sort of service from a company. As a developer, they have really looked after me and I honestly cannot fault them in any way and would have now hesitation in recommending them to my current and future clients. In my opinion, don't bother signing up with any of the other providers, just give TextLocal a try. I am sure, like me, you wont be disappointed.
