Announcing Enterprise plans for Phone Call & SMS Reminder Software

We’re super excited to announce that we’ve released monthly subscription plans of JustRemindIt that will be useful for Enterprise scale businesses.

So far we’ve been focusing on helping Small Businesses to send Phone Call and SMS reminders to their clients or consumers to send reminders to their friends or themselves. We’ve been also continuously working on adding new features, improving existing features, and improving our performance.

While doing this, we’ve received few customer requests who wanted to send large volume reminders. So with all new improvements and enhancements, we believe that we can support more businesses which have high volume requirements.

So based on customer demand and also based on recent developments, we decided to also help Enterprise businesses along with Small businesses to send Voice Call and SMS reminders the easiest possible way. So please check out our new pricing plans for Enterprise businesses. We believe we offer the most affordable pricing in the market for Phone Call and SMS reminder solution out there. Hope you also find so!

Also, let us know if you have any questions or feedback about anything. Just email us at help@justremindit.com and we will get back to you right away.

Announcing Caller ID Support, Gathering Receiver’s Feedback, and more features

A lot has happened since we launched our monthly subscription plans a couple months ago. Many customers upgraded their free plan to Premium plan and finding it as a good move. Few of them even have written to us about how happy they’re with our reliable service and excellent customer support.

But it’s not all good and rosy out here. Few of them also complained about bugs we had in our service and some features that we didn’t support early on. But we stayed strong, listened to feedback, and executed on what customers were asking for.

Today, I’m really happy to share that we’ve improved our usability, fixed known bugs, and most importantly launched few most requested features.

Announcing new features -

  1. Use your Phone Number as a Caller ID: Till now we were sending all reminders from 1-877 number. But most receivers don’t recognize that number and sometimes they wouldn’t pick up the call. So many of our customers wanted to send reminders from their own phone number. Now you can exactly do that. First you need to verify your number with our service, then we’ll use your number as a Caller ID to send both Phone Call and SMS reminders.
  2. Gather receiver’s response at the end of a reminder: Many of our customers are using this service to send Appointment Reminders, and the most important part was to know if the client is still going to show up for an appointment or not. Now you can gather response from a receiver with simple feedback mechanism, where receiver needs to press different keys to Confirm, Cancel or Reschedule an appointment. We’ll show you this response status on the reminder History page with nice color-coding for a quick glance!
  3. Send custom greeting message: Some people didn’t like our standard greeting message that we send with each reminder message! But that’s all right, we understand people have different preferences. So now we’re enabling you to send your own custom welcome greeting message for each reminder that represents your business or suits to your personality!

Here is how these features look on the Settings page -

This is how it looks on History page when feedback response from receiver is received about appointment confirmation -

Currently these features can be enabled only from our Web Application. Use your same login details that you use for the iPhone app. Once you enable these features from Web application, they will be in effect even though you schedule reminders from iPhone App.

Also, these features are available only for all Premium plans. So if you’re using a Personal plan, and want to use these features, then you need to upgrade your account to any Premium plan!

I hope you’ll find these additions useful and valuable. Please don’t hesitate to report any issues you see or suggest new ideas you have that can improve our service.

KillerStartups says JustRemindIt iPhone app is ingenious!

Few days ago KillerStartups wrote a nice review about JustRemindIt iPhone app. You can read the full article here – http://killerstartups.com/Mobile/justremindit-com-send-voice-reminders

Our favorite part is -

The way Just Remind It works is actually quite ingenious, as all you have to do is specify who should receive the reminder, and then type a text message and have it sent out to Just Remind It. The company will take care of converting that text message into voice, and call the person up when the time comes.

Thank you KillerStartups for a nice review!

Twilio writes about JustRemindIt iPhone app’s story

The nice guys at Twilio wrote a quick blog post about JustRemindIt’s story - JustRemindIt Uses Twilio to Help You Forget About Forgetting

They summed up how JustRemindIt started really well -

Aditya’s wife prototyped the first version of JustRemindIt for a class project. After getting positive feedback from both her classmates and friends, Aditya decided to build a commercial version. Reminders are as low as 8 cents, and the free iPhone app makes entering reminders a breeze.

Working on Twilio platform was really an awesome experience. It’s a straight forward technology with great value proposition. Getting started with their technology was super easy, thanks to their well documented APIs and examples. And we love their great customer service too – their developer evangelists are always available to help and answer your questions!

I’ll write more technical details about JustRemindIt’s architecture and how we use Twilio in a future post but in short, it’s a great experience to start a new business (not just an application) on top of Twilio platform. There is a tremendous opportunity for many interesting businesses to get started using their powerful platform. I’m excited and looking forward to build many interesting things for JustRemindIt using their interesting APIs, and also look forward to see interesting applications that fellow developers will build.

Thank you Twilio for providing such a wonderful platform, an awesome customer service, and nice write ups that help developers promote their applications.
