Cellit strives to put the power of mobile technology into all parts of your daily life. Today, Cellit is proud to announce that we’re going someplace new: The open road!
Our new Driveit technology allows you to control your vehicle (or any Driveit-enabled vehicle) through text messages sent from your cell phone! Imagine the possibilities!
Don’t want to go to the store? Don’t! Send your car there on its own!
No need to hold a clumsy steering wheel or push pedals with your feet. Let your thumbs do the driving!
Send your car to pick up the kids from school from the comfort of your living room!
Save money on gas without a driver weighing the car down!
Works with any text-messaging enabled phone!
How does it work? Simple! Send commands from your phone, such as FORWARD, BACKWARD, LEFT, RIGHT, EXCHANGE INSURANCE INFORMATION, or HONK, to a Cellit shortcode. Those messages will be sent to your car and your car will do what it is told! It’s that simple!

NFIB, the Voice of Small Business, just release an article outlining tips for boosting sales through text messaging, which featured Cellit’s David Wachs. The tips include targeting current customers, driving new business and going viral.
“Text message marketing is a low-cost way to get deals into your customers’ hands to drive sales. Texts are more convenient than email or print coupons, so it’s no surprise that they’re effective. Coupons sent via text message are redeemed eight times more often than those sent via email, says David Wachs, founder and president of Cellit, a mobile marketing company in Chicago.
To start sending texts, sign up for a mobile marketing service. Most charge a monthly fee, and some provide additional support, such as advertising materials and coupon-redemption tracking. You can send and schedule texts through an online account.”
“In our markets where those huge blizzards hit, we told our franchisees to get an e-mail or a text out to catering customers and deliver their orders to the offices if people were stuck,” CEO Mike Rotondo said.
“We try to teach our franchisees to use something like that to their advantage, especially if your competitors are rolling over and cutting staff in bad weather.”
Tropical Smoothie Café has been a great client to work with because they aren’t afraid to be creative with their marketing and are always looking for ways to use technology to help their franchises connect with customers.
