Seattle – August 7, 2019 – Zipwhip, the leading provider of texting-for-business, today announced the public launch of the Zipwhip desktop app, the first-ever desktop app available within the texting-for-business industry. Zipwhip’s desktop app enhances the user experience with new notification functionality and auto-launch on system startup, maximizing adoption and ensuring businesses never miss a customer message.
Zipwhip’s desktop application provides the full functionally and experience of the web-based product through an easy-to-use application installed on the user’s operating system. Available for both Windows and Mac users, the desktop app will launch as the user’s computer is turned on and is then viewable from the dock (MacOS) or task bar (Windows).
