Text Technology Allows Users to Say Goodbye to Business Cards, Brochures and Data Entry

Share Article

Michael Halvorson, a Phoenix business services printer has launched a novel way to help his clients communicate with customers, colleagues and friends--WITHOUT paper.

The new service, TextID, allows users to purchase unique text "domains", such as their names or businesses that allows them to pass along contact information and messages quickly and conveniently. They can give out their ID, lawn care or Angie for example, and the recipient texts that name to 555411. In just a few moments, they will receive a text back to their phones with contact information and the message the TextID member has chosen, which can also include a file.

Obviously the new service has a wide range of applications, from personal to commercial. Whether for realtors looking to get pricing and home information into a potential buyer's hand while they are out looking for a home, a hip teacher providing up-to-date assignment and test information, a restaurant passing on weekly specials, a club promoter pushing the weekend band, or someone just looking to make the dating scene a bit easier, Text ID can work perfectly for a variety of users.

Halvorson, owner and CEO of Desert Litho Printing, got tired of watching his bottom line shrinking as new technologies streamed into the market and printing costs (especially for small to medium-sized businesses) have begun to see a smaller piece of the company budget. His clients were eager for green alternatives to stacks of business cards and expensive brochures, and looking for new, cutting-edge marketing ideas.

At around the same time, Halvorson became interested text messaging technology and realized that this might just be what his clients were looking for. So he acquired the short code for 555411--a number that he felt just about anyone could remember.

The service launched September 15th and has a free version for use during launch.

According to Halvorson, "The beauty of TextID is really that just about anyone can use it, from one single person to a company. And whether it's for convenience or to generate sales or save trees, it's really where things are headed."
