As a small business owner, it’s clear that your time and money is very valuable to you. And if you're here, you're aware that people prefer to text with businesses. That’s why Zang clients, such as salon or dentist office owners, are starting to build SMS applications to remind customers to confirm their appointments. And anyone can create these apps, no programming experience required. Your new SMS application will create a clear line of communication between your business and your customers, strengthening the relationship with the people that mean the most. With the DragToCode platform, building SMS and Voice apps is as simple as putting together lego pieces. Simply sign-up for an account, read some blogs or demos, and you’ll become a master of the craft.

Here is an example of a customer utilizing DragToCode and Zang APIs. Incorporated with their patient management system, when the script is called, a message is sent containing the date and time of the appointment.
