Oxygen8 Communications Launches New SMS Bulk Rates
BIRMINGHAM, England, April 14 /PRNewswire/ — Global micro-billing, communications and mobile enablement specialist, Oxygen8 Communications (http://www.oxygen8.com) today announces its new SMS bulk rates for UK media companies and corporates who are looking to send bulk text messages in order to maximise revenues from mobile marketing activities internationally.
Gary Corbett, Commercial Director at Oxygen8 Communications, says, “As bulk volumes continue to soar we have seen customers increasingly sending bulk text messages globally. As a result pricing for wholesale international SMS continues to decrease, creating new business opportunities for any company that is looking to expand their international business activities.”
Corbett continues, “The new SMS bulk rates are accompanied by the functionality of the Oxygen8 Mobile platform, which is very scalable and is able to handle hundreds of messages per second and hundreds of connections, enabling customers to increase billing collections and bottom-line profits by utilising bulk text messages. This means that companies can be managing sophisticated international campaigns in just minutes, whilst resellers are able to build applications and standalone business based on the capabilities of the platform.”
Key features of the Oxygen8 Mobile platform include:
- Creation of interactive services
- Integration via simple APIs
- Scheduled sends
- Advanced scheduling – managing rate and capacity of sends
- Dynamic headers
- Dashboard reporting
Corbett concludes, “We want our customers to be able to grow their business quickly and easily either within their domestic markets or across the globe. In today’s world that means having a resilient platform but with the flexibility that is required to adapt services to the increasingly sophisticated and complex way that consumers interact with new media. With the Oxygen8 platform, accompanied by our new SMS bulk rates, this becomes possible.”
Oxygen8 Communications has set a target of growing 60% in the next two years, building on its strong performance in 2009. Turnover in the last six months of 2009 was 20% up on the previous year. Whilst core markets such as the UK have seen an increase of 10%, emerging markets, particularly in Africa, are seeing triple digit growth.
