Android VS Cloud
Android vs Cloud? What is the difference.We have two separate software systems so it’s easy to get them confused. We understand that is not your fault!
Here is a quick summary of each system and the pros and cons of each.
ANDROID TEXTINGWe have 44,000 registered businesses using our Android app. It works on your phone and therefore it can be very convenient and easy to use.
It works based on your SIM card’s plan with your carrier. That means it is much cheaper than Cloud because 1 credit equals 1 outbound text. Inbound texts are FREE but you have to put up with all the issues that come with SIM cards, Cell Towers, Carriers, etc. and that doesn’t include the problems caused by Android OS bugs.
However, you have to put up with all the issues that come with SIM cards, Cell Towers, Carriers, etc. and that doesn’t include the problems caused by Android OS bugs.
Typically our Android system is best for small businesses that won’t ever text more than about 5-10k customers a month.
We do have a web based system you can use to control your Android device. The login credentials are in the app’s settings area under your profile info.

Android has syncing issues so this system is buggy sometimes. We are working on improving it but most customers just migrate to Cloud when they are at this level anyway.
CLOUD TEXTINGWe only have about 1,200 companies using our Cloud but they are all spending much more money than Android customers.
The Cloud allows you to buy large amounts of phone numbers and our Smart Rotator allows you to pool them all together so you can send very big volume in short periods of time.
It is much more reliable and less buggy. It is designed for serious texting with a focus on generating leads and sales.

Android is a great place to start but we believe you will eventually end up in Cloud. It is more expensive but when something makes you more money than it costs, it pays for itself.
CONCLUSIONBoth utilize our artificial intelligence system for automated responses to messages like a chatbot. They both allow campaigning and customer management but Cloud is where you want to be if you are going to send large volumes or you have many locations to manage at once.
