marketwatchDid you know that most Fortune 1000 corporations now spend approximately $5 million to $10 million annually on e-discovery, the process of collecting digital data when a company is being sued or investigated?  You’ve probably heard the term recently due to security-related controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton using her personal email to send messages regarding government business.  Today, companies can avoid the lawyer and preventative software fees altogether by turning to mobile messaging for their corporate communications.  Thanks to advances in encryption and highly secure wireless networks, mobile messaging is often more secure than email.  Read more on the topic in [...]

In a recent article for Wired, John Lauer, CEO of ZipWhip, gives us his take on SMS today:

5 Incredible Mobile Breakthroughs of 2013

2013 was the year of innovative mobile technology. Twenty years ago, we used our mobile devices primarily for calling and, really, not much else. Today, our mobile devices help run our entire lives and without them we would be lost. We book appointments through our devices, navigate directions to our favorite hotspots, calculate tips at restaurants, and take shameless “selfies” in public to send to our friends.

Happy 20th birthday text messaging!

20 years ago the first SMS was sent, a Christmas message typed out on a computer and sent over the Vodafone network by Neil Papworth to Richard Jarvis.  Little has changed with SMS since the “Merry Christmas” message was sent except maybe the size of the handsets ( the Orbitel 901, a “mobile” phone that weighed nearly 5 pounds) and the spelling ability of the senders.

Seasonal workforce united by TXT

Yes, you read right, the cookies don’t sell themselves (but they really are good enough to be able to do so). The fact is though that the sorts of people that do this seasonal work are best reached via TXT. Whether they are migrants or youths, they are more likely to be reachable through their mobile and the cost in both money and time to call each [...]

TXT Fundraising – Small donations for Big Causes

Much has been made recently about how the US Presidential Campaigns have been allowed to utilise SMS for fundraising and this has raised awareness of the avenue but it is not just for Donkeys and Elephants.

SMS Fund for fundraising has been used by Charities for many years as a way to generate donations especially from the younger markets, some campaigns with more success than others.  Is Obama Inc. a charity or does Romney really need your $5 when Corporate America is bank rolling their luncheons?  Probably not, but [...]
