Product

We love Flocknote and they've built a great product, but there are a few things that set Clearstream apart. We're meticulous about providing a platform that is fast, easy to use, and beautiful to look at. We also have features unique to us - subaccounts, video, menus, and notes - and we're constantly developing more.

Integrations

We have two-way integrations with Planning Center, Rock RMS, and CCB/Pushpay. Not only can you sync existing lists into Clearstream, but you can also push info collected via text into your ChMS and create a new person profile and optionally add people to a Workflow, Group, or Process Queue. There are no issues with duplicate profiles or slow data syncing.

🎉 New: The Clearstream Add-On in Planning Center. Text using Clearstream without leaving Planning Center!

Automated Workflows

Mass texting is only the beginning of what you can do with Clearstream. Schedule or delay texts for later, auto-reply with different information based on someone's menu choice, send different texts based on how many times a keyword is used, route people to different accounts or workflows, and more.

Keyword "prayer" is used and a workflow is launched. Auto-texts are sent with helpful prayer questions

A2P Registration

We register all texting numbers with the highest vetting possible, giving you faster message throughput and less carrier filtering. You get to choose your own 10-digit, local number, and you get more than one number with each monthly plan.

If you're interested in a 5-digit number, Clearstream is a Premier Partner with the Short Code Registry. We're the most affordable option for leasing 5-digit numbers.
