Our Story

At Rally our core values drive everything we do. For example, we believe that people should always come first, and we believe in the power of relationships.  So, when we sat out to solve our own challenge with connecting with the people who wanted to hear from us but often couldn’t because of the noise and chatter in their inboxes, we built Rally.

We wanted to meet people on the channel they prefer and to do it in a way that was both personal and relational — the way we would want the organizations we deal with to treat us. Frankly, we were appalled at how impersonal, one-sided, and robotic other text messaging platforms were.

We started Rally because we’re driven to help people like you create better, more trusting relationships with their audiences. We know what’s possible– and we’re on a mission to help organizations better connect with and move people to action.
