Text messaging is quickly becoming a communication method of choice for many businesses. A compatible computer or mobile device can send messages between users electronically, either over a cellular network or an internet connection.
Text messaging has been seen as an informal communication method, reserved mostly for social contacts, family, and friends. However, businesses are adopting text messaging as a convenient way to touch base with remote employees, coordinate meetings and project leads with colleagues, and send out reminders about important company policies.
The convenience of text messaging cannot be overstated even in the context of business communications. It should be considered an invaluable feature both for personal communication and for team leadership in work activities, particularly if they have to be coordinated off-site.
