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.

Massively recommend to everyone

I have been so impressed with Chalkboard since I first find them on the App Store.

They have developed the app so much in the last couple of years and are always updating the app with new features.

It’s also incredibly reasonably priced for the service you get and the support team are very responsive - any day or time and very keen to know about your experience and feedback.

I would absolutely recommend Chalkboard and will be using it for future team members when I expand my business!

Chalkboard supports my mental wellbeing

Before I found Chalkboard, my work/life balance felt blurry because I was constantly getting work messages and as well as personal stuff all routed to the same number, and I felt I was always switched on to the world of work. But now that I have a super affordable virtual number with Chalkboard, I can keep the two separate mentally.

It's super easy to use, and I can even turn off notifications when I need a break. Plus, if I'm feeling really organised or need more mental separation, I can use a completely device for all my work-related stuff - like WhatsApp or email apps.

Honestly, I can't recommend Chalkboard enough...

Easy way to get a mobile phone number…

Easy way to get a mobile phone number for my business. Saves me so much time, instead of wasting it setting up Twilio or any other tools.

I would like the app to develop a bit more to allow for greater sms marketing

- desktop access
- Uploading csv's to create the lists (instead of manually adding each number)

Business Number at an Affordable Price

Chalkboard has been such a help to my small business. It provides peace of mind to have my client related communications all in one place and not have my personal phone number posted all over the internet. I personally really enjoy having the texting options and after hours text messages. Chalkboard has gone above and beyond with regular updates of the system and customer service. You get so much for such a little investment. I love having a business number at an affordable price.

Great tool for small business owners

Incredibly easy to set up, with the ability to broadcast to specific lists of contacts (think mailing list, current/past clients).

Simple, clean interface that has everything you need. I really love the ability to set up a number of automated voicemails/messages, with the ability to create ones for outside of your working hours, holidays etc.

My only issue sometimes is a delay/absence of notifications coming through of new calls or messages

Amazing Customer Service

The customer service for Chalkboard has been outstanding - I've always received an answer in less than 24 hours and their team has always been eager to help me.

My problem or question has always been solved or answered even if it was something I couldn't do.

Their team has been happy to help even if it meant working on the back end for something for our small business.

Valuable app

I have been using chalkboard since setting up my new business and it has been a vital app for bringing in new customers, but also the ease of using it has saved me plenty of admin time per week. I would highly recommend using it for the ease, value for money and benefit to my business.

Two phones in one.

I wanted to separate work calls from personal ones but not carry two phones around with me - this app is perfect. I got it when it still didn't display the caller's number, then they fixed that. Then I asked for users to be able to share the same number and they fixed that. Good to see an app being constantly developed.
