Looking for a Podium alternative for your alarm company?

Maybe you’ve heard of Podium, the web chat software company that is offering alarm companies an easy way to text your business right from your website. They also offer a bundled review management system so that you can even text your customers asking for a review.

The barrier that many security dealers face with Podium is that it’s just too expensive for them. While the functionality is useful and cool, hundreds of dollars a month / thousands per year just seems like too much to justify the investment. This is what we hear from clients and prospects, and the reason more alarm companies are switching to the webchat / text / reviews solution from Ignite every day.

Ignite is pleased to introduce IgniteChat – an affordable web chat / web text solution that brings 3 essential marketing tools together for your security business: web chat / text, Facebook Messenger and Reputation Management: all of the essential features that Podium offers, but at a fraction of the cost: $85 per month, with no contracts.

Check out the purple phone icon in the lower right corner of your screen to see how we use it for ourselves. The widget for your website can be easily customized for your brand and message.
