2019 was a busy year for Zipwhip. From publishing the first State of Texting report, releasing the industry’s first Texting for BusinessTM desktop app and moving offices, we didn’t slow down. Our hard work and amazing culture didn’t go unnoticed either. Along the way we added some new awards to our trophy case – 23 in fact! Check them out.
Our employees are a dedicated group who bring determination, enthusiasm and fun to everything they do. They are the reason Zipwhip is the de-facto software and brand for business texting. Throughout the year, our employees recognized Zipwhip as one of the region’s best places to work.
