Instead of a phone system. Phone systems tie your team to desks and can be complicated to configure. Chalkboard is the simpler alternative to clunky old phone systems.

What people say about Chalkboard

10 Sept 2023

I subscribed almost instantly and have been using the app now for over a year and it has become an integral part of my business success.

Chalkboard frequently add new features and update their members and they’re always on hand if you need them.

The app has some great features… I love that it includes voicemail, but also that I can send a text response to missed calls.

Receiving voicemail messages as both a sound and text message is brilliant. Being able to ‘broadcast’ text messages to lists is really useful.
