I'm searching for a good synonym for communicative, but with an emphasis on being in constant communication over time, not merely the "amount" of communication (so talkative and such don't work). A short phrase will work as well.

Example context:

Unlike our inferior competitors, we are great because we are communicative (e.g. we constantly stay in touch with you).

  • Is it 'connected'? – WS2 Jan 13 '14 at 8:48

    @WS2, not quite. I may be nitpicking, but connected implies more of an uninterrupted stream of exchange than I want to convey. What I'm trying to say is, "Hey, we are always in touch with you when we (either of us) need to communicate." – Arman H Jan 13 '14 at 8:58
  • I would say 'Sam and I are in regular contact'. – WS2 Jan 13 '14 at 21:19
  • connected can also have social media connotations that could imply an intermittent form of communication that could come across as opposite to what you desire (unless you clarify).. – New Alexandria Jan 13 '14 at 21:40

For this particular instance I like at [one's|your] disposal. You could also say that you are a [call|click] away.

  • I like "at your disposal" because it has the closest meaning without alluding to other concepts, and is also succinct. – Arman H Apr 9 '14 at 6:36

I think you are really looking for accessible, approachable, available or responsive.

These, of course, are about being communicative when asked. If you are very communicative proactively, then I'd say you shouldn't be exactly advertising that, because it sounds like you'll be spamming me, or forcing your staying-in-touch with me upon me in other ways. I for one will then very much consider your "inferior" competitors who surely won't refuse answering a question or two of mine, either, but won't keep pestering me with their "just wanted to check back with you"s, "was wondering if everything's alright"s, and "our previous offer has expired, here's an update for your convenience"s.

  • Thanks for great suggestions. The context was of an advertising copy where a distinction of being "always in touch" was crucial. The industry for whom the message was intended is known to have companies that charge fees up-front, but have to be hounded by clients for results, so there was no concern of appearing too "spammy" in this particular case. – Arman H Apr 17 '14 at 8:13

Think about attentive and transparent.

The consistently-high level of communication you're describing is relative to a service rendered. Thus, make the words you seek to be contextual to that. it would have helped to call-out this more explicitly in the question's body.

Staying in constant contact in a service relationship is often regarded as being Attentive. Transparency reinforces this.
