SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- GetClose, the messaging app that lets consumers send messages to any business, any time and get a quick response, is available in the iOS App Store today with the goal of making unnecessary phone calls to businesses obsolete.
"The phone call is DEAD," said Brian Szady, CEO and co-founder at GetClose. "Communicating with businesses has NOT changed in over 20 years! With GetClose, connecting with a business is simple: Send a message, get a quick response. THAT'S IT. Our lives have enough havoc. Why should contacting a business add more stress? We want to give time BACK to consumers and businesses."
How it works

What Do People Send
Consumers can ask questions, send feedback, or anything such as:
- What time is the band playing?
- Is my car ready?
- Do you have an opening this afternoon?
- What's the special today?
- We are running 15 minutes late. Will you hold our reservation?
- Do you have this product in stock?
Consumers get quick responses, without having to make a painful phone call to a landline or conduct a web/mobile search. Consumers can "#GetCloseTo" a business.
Why it works
Everyone messages. GetClose simply extends messaging between consumers and businesses. Select a business, send a message, and receive a quick response. To make it even easier, GetClose provides each on-boarded business with the following tools:
1.) A free SMS number, allowing consumers to simply text the business – without even needing the app.
2.) A free set of marketing materials, such as fliers and stickers, to help get the word out.
