    Hi All, with my small business I'm looking at putting a live chat function on. Podium has been recommended by some marketing people but it is expensive! (About $500 a month, but they are offering some other features and includes the SMS cost)

    To me the main advantage is that the client enters their mobile number and all the chat is done for the client via the webpage or mobile SMS and for us it's via an online website (PC) or app (Android) but is sent via SMS. They can be off the website but the chat can still continue.

    Does anyone else know of a similar feature/app. I know a lot of them like Zendesk can have the live chat on the webpage but my impression being 'data' that they have to still be on the website.

    My google fu is failing me.

    Thanks Josh.
