Already a leading provider of SMS messaging in the UK, Text Messaging Centre (TMC) can now serve customers worldwide through a partnership with Ericsson Internet Payment Exchange (IPX).
Using a fully scalable, web-based application, TMC provides user-controlled and managed web-based text messaging solutions for business. The company´s software tools and services allow organizations to control their own sending and receiving of unlimited global text messages. In addition to its web-based applications, TMC also develops a number of bespoke solutions for customers who want to integrate SMS into their enterprise communications. High profile UK-based clients include Balfour Beatty Rail, St John’s Ambulance and Citigroup Inc.
TMC uses the IPX Bulk Messaging service to send and receive SMS messages globally. With direct connections to over 220 countries and up to 20 backup channels per destination, TMC now has the reach and the reliability it needs to take its enterprise solutions to the next level.
Peter Tanner, Managing Director, TMC, UK explains why the company chose to partner with Ericsson IPX: “We evaluated a number of suppliers to find a reliable service with a broad reach. Ericsson IPX was chosen because they offer a resilient service with a valuable global footprint. This has made Ericsson a trusted messaging partner as we continue to develop our services.”
TMC can now reach every mobile phone in Europe and has extended its services in parts of the Middle East, Asia and Australia. IPX’s international presence and award-winning service has made it possible for TMC to send over 100 messages per second and ensure reliability.
Peter Garside, Regional IPX Manager, Ericsson explains the benefits the partnership brings: “TMC’s customers are widespread and require a service they can depend on. They need to know that their messages will be delivered securely and IPX offers global reach and a reputable service, making us the logical choice.”
TMC continues to work closely with Ericsson to develop innovative new services for its Enterprise customers. The company recently unveiled a ‘quick-fire’ SMS service which enables customers to send and receive SMS messages directly from Microsoft Outlook. The product uses a combination of Ericsson IPX SMS Bulk and SMS Long Numbers to enable recipients to reply to the sender’s Outlook inbox via SMS.
