“Uplink allows sales professionals to connect with leads and customers in the same way they would a friend, having quick and convenient conversations that offer a more personalized customer experience,” said Jon Robinson, president of Lunar. “According to a recent study, 85 percent of customers said they would prefer to reply to a text message from a business compared to a phone call, and Uplink provides businesses with a way to reach those customers without sacrificing data insight or disrupting workflow.”
