SendHub is an online contact organizer that helps anyone working with a large audience gather contact details. Users pick a keyword and a free phone number from SendHub. The number and keyword can be shared with the user’s audience or any contacts they wish to save. When the individual texts the keyword to the phone number provided, SendHub prompts them for their name and automatically save their phone number. The information is collected and stored for the user. The user can return to their SendHub contact database any time they want to send a message to many contacts. Rather than text each individually, the user can send one message to a large group.
