Manual Texts

Manual texts are ones that you manually send while on a call.

When setting up a campaign, you can save a number of responses as templates and send them based on how the conversation goes.

Manual texts come in handy when you need to share additional details with the contact or share an event or donate link.


Add a new number to send texts to

You have the option to add a new number to send the text to. This is in case the call is made to a landline number or you simply wish to send the text to a different cell number.

Send custom responses

Don’t have a templated response for the conversation you had? That’s not an issue. You can even type out a custom response while on call and share it with the contact.


Automated Texts

Automated texts are sent out automatically by the system. These texts are sent out based on the call dispositions (like busy, unanswered, call back, etc.) you add.

When setting up the campaign, you can add an automated text to be sent out for a specific disposition; for example, an unanswered call.

Automated texts are used to send a follow up text to contacts you speak to. You can even maximize contact rates by letting contacts know that you tried reaching them.

Set up texts for multiple dispositions

Save multiple templates for different dispositions. You can have a template for busy numbers, for voicemails, for answered calls, and more.

Automated texts to urge contacts to call you back

Came across a contact who didn’t pick up? Let the system drop an automated text with your number and get them to call you back. You don’t need a separate inbound calling campaign to receive these calls.

Frequently asked questions about texting from call center

What is texting from call center (or call center SMS)?

CallHub’s texting from call center is a feature that provides you with the benefits of both SMS and calling in one dashboard. It allows agents to send a text message while on call (or after it) right from the calling dashboard.

What happens if we're calling a landline number?

In the manual texting option, you can either send the text to the number you called or add a new number while on call. So if it’s a landline number, you just have to type in the mobile number. For automated texts, the system selects the number from the “Mobile Number” column to send texts to. So even if you called a landline number, the text goes out to the corresponding mobile number of the contact.

What is the cost of call center SMS?

With CallHub, this advanced feature is available to you at no additional cost. You are only charged for the texts you send and nothing else. Please refer to our pricing page for more details.
