Mile High Tech: TextUs.Biz Brings Businesses and Customers Together Mike Awada November 1, 2012 Technology Courtesy of Chron.com A New Way To Do Business Talking on the phone and leaving voicemails is going the way of the dinosaurs; in 2011 alone, there were over 7 trillion texts sent worldwide. If businesses don’t adapt to the way consumers are behaving, they’ll be left in the dust. Fast. Luckily, a Boulder start-up is stepping up and allowing businesses and consumers to communicate in the most comfortable manner we have today. TextUs.Biz More and more people are living busier and busier lives. We simply don’t have the time or desire to talk on the phone anymore.
