A location represents a place in your customer journey. Each location has its own set of channels and appears separately in reports.
A channel is how you engage your customers. Loop is ‘omni-channel’ (meaning lots of channels and many of each). Loop has traditional channels (text messaging, email), messaging app channels (Facebook Messenger, Twitter Direct Message and many, many more), self-service channels (like our Pulse kiosks), embeddable channels (such as Loop Messenger, Loop Pulse, Loop Pulse Check) and dispay channels (such as our Pulse Scoreboard).
For the Loop Express plan, only sent or received text messages (SMS, MMS) and emails count as messages. For enterprise plans, see the [Benbria Messaging Credit and Fair Use Policy](https://support.benbria.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004222853-Benbria-Messaging-Credit-Fair-Use-Policy) for detail.
We charge for additional messages and will contact you directly.
Check the Accounts page for upgrade options. If you are looking to do more than what our self-service plans allow, contact us!

The best way to find out if Loop is right for your business is to try it out. Our Express plan gives you access to the Inbox and core features. Also, feel free to browse the Knowledge Base to learn more.
Loop is a software platform for handling conversations, survey responses and requests from your customers across any channel. You can respond to conversations or requests through the Loop Inbox or through your own product using integrations with our API and/or SDK.
A conversation is any number of sent or received messages between a contact (your customer) using a channel of their choice and a team member (you or a colleage) using the Loop Inbox. Please see Benbria’s Benbria Messaging Credit & Fair Use Policy for information on text messaging specifically.
A response is a set of answers submitted by a contact to survey questions you have asked on a Pulse experience. With Loop you can configure many unique surveys (say, for different places in your customer journey) that feed results into universal categories for reporting and analysis. Metric categories like quality, speed, cleanliness, service, value and experience are common. With Pulse you can collect comments, information (like the name of an employee who has done an excellent job or a customer’s loyalty rewards number), contact information and more. Using Loop’s rule engine, a simple response can start a conversation with a customer to thank or start service recovery.
A request is an order for service placed by a contact (your customer) that is tracked to completion. Requests are tracked as first opened, then acknowledged, then fulfilled and Loop keeps everyone informed (including the customer). Requests are well-structured and are created by a customer using the OnDemand menu features of the Loop Messenger Channel. You define the menu using the OnDemand framework. Integrations to ticketing platforms like HotSOS, HotelMGR, KNOW Service and more are available.
When in doubt, ask us! Features are available depending on your plan. In the Express plan, some features are not available as self-service and require assistance from support.
The platform is built using the most reliable tools and vendors on the market: Node.js, mongoDB, Android (java), iOS (Swift) and hosted on leading cloud platforms with 24×7 monitoring.
Our API (“Application Programming Interface”) allows your business systems or apps to interact with Loop automatically. The SDK (“Software Development Kit”) is a collection of code-level resources for your developers that are easily copy-pasted into your websites and apps to turn on Loop experiences and features.
