TalkTo Launches its Text-Any-Business App in Canada

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 7, 2013, 2013 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- TalkTo makes finding and texting a business as easy as texting a friend; text any Canadian business for information, appointments or reservations without the hassle of a phone call Today TalkTo ( announced its free Web, iPhone and Android app that lets you text any business now works with all Canadian businesses. Canadians who prefer texting to calling - such as busy parents, students and young professionals - can now send text messages to any business in Canada to find out if something is in stock, make a reservation or book an appointment, eliminating the need for time-wasting phone calls. Here's a video detailing how the app works.

TalkTo is completely free for users as well as businesses that can easily customize how they receive consumers' messages at The app has received rave reviews from its U.S. users and was acclaimed as one of "25 Standout Apps for 2012" by Mashable.

"Texting businesses should as easy as texting your friends," said TalkTo CEO, Stuart Levinson. "By bringing TalkTo to Canada, we are saving Canadians from the hassle of calling businesses and being put on hold." Users simply enter the name of the business they want to contact and type in their question, request or feedback. TalkTo makes sure the message is delivered to the business and that there's a timely text response. If the business is closed, users receive a response once the business opens so they don't need to set reminders or make multiple attempts. The apps keep conversations synced across devices, meaning users can send a message from any smartphone or Web connected device.

To make all this possible, TalkTo works in the background to find the best way to contact the business with your message. The app can deliver it by chat, SMS, email, or even an old-fashioned phone call if necessary, and then it makes sure you receive a text response.

About TalkToNow you can text businesses, just like you text your friends. TalkTo makes it simple to text a message to any business from the Web or your mobile device to get information, find a product, or make appointments and reservations. Use TalkTo to ask a question and then get on with your day: the people at TalkTo follow through to make sure you get a timely response. TalkTo is headquartered in Cambridge, MA and venture-backed by Matrix Partners. More at
