Two decades of SMS continuance

- 5 MIN READ - 30 Nov 2012

We have seen remarkable evolution of text messaging for around 20 years and more importantly – have learned a lot along the way. The very first SMS was sent by a 22 year old British engineer Neil Papworth on 3rd of December 1992 wishing Richard Jarvis Merry Christmas. The occasion set off a revolution in the way we connect today and evolved text messaging since then. For years SMS has been used ingeniously and extensively across the world and plain simplicity of text messaging technology have had an incredible impact across all continents.

Today SMS lets you communicate with your customers in seconds for pennies offering new untapped opportunities for businesses and brands. Over the years SMS has proven itself to be one of the most popular, widely-used and ubiquitous forms of communication.

20 years and counting

Text messaging has been widely accessible for 20 years and still going strong as one of the mostly used forms of data communication. Happy twentieth anniversary!

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.
