The problem with texts is that there is still an expectation of immediacy, which can be a problem in a customer based response.

People are starting to have the same expectations with email, but I find if I am consistent in my response time and always use a more formal, business letter email style, I can shape their expectations.

At my job, we have a saying. We call business partners, and we text our friends.
