Imagine all the people being connected

- 5 MIN READ - 10 Mar 2013

Have you ever wondered how many people actually own or use mobile phone?

Recent studies have shown that by the year 2017 there will probably be 5 billion unique mobile subscribers all over the world. Whereas by the year 2012 the number was approximately 3.2 billion, which is a bit less than half of the world population. This fact shows, that in less than 5 years, the mobile industry is expected to grow and spread even more, reaching countries and regions which do not even yet have proper infrastructure.

It is obvious that the growth is decreasing in developed countries and increasing in developing countries. For example in Africa, only one third of the population is in the list of mobile subscribers.

Who’s to say that the whole world must be covered with mobile networks? Still, we see how these crazy technical ideas and solutions have helped us in our every day life, in business and most of all keeping in touch our loved ones. Needless to say, one can not even imagine the amount of new cool services that can be built on such powerful platform of communication.

I am anxious to see, how does the growing number of mobile network users impact the mobile services industry, as well as the usage of smartphones.

We’ve developed solid APIs for global SMS messaging and two-factor authentication, which are currently part of processes for hundreds of companies and facilitate thousands of transactions every day. Yet we aren’t stopping there. Effectively communicating with customers and securing customer account access online are two aspects of business technology we focus on. While there’s much more to business technology (much, much more,) these are the two areas which we strive to be the best.  

That’s why we keep developing our tools to address evolving needs in the areas which we specialize.

Tools to avoid breaking the budget with SMS

01 Aug 2017

Getting the most bang out of each buck in a marketing communication strategy requires solids budget estimation. Yet when the budget is broken halfway through the month, the questions arise: How did this happen? How have we sent twice as many SMS messages than we should have at this point? Well, this is where the multipart SMS comes into play.
