TynTec to help low-cost VoIP provider go mobile with application-to-mobile SMS offering
September 29th, 2009 – Singapore: Mobile messaging provider TynTec (www.tyntec.com) today announces a deal with low-cost international VoIP provider Callforeign (www.callforeign.com) to provide Internet-to-mobile SMS delivery. Callforeign, which provides users with VoIP services aimed at reducing the cost of international phone calls, will use TynTec to deliver SMS sent either from the web or from a specialized mobile application.
The Callforeign Mobilesip application allows users to make phone calls over VoIP using either WiFi or 3G on their mobile phone. By working with TynTec the company has been able to integrate an SMS delivery element, allowing people to send international SMS over the Internet, saving a significant amount of money.
Additionally, by working with TynTec, Callforeign is able to provide a dedicated international SMS delivery portal which allows users to logon from anywhere in the world and send cut-price text messages.
Both of these applications are using TynTec’s SMS MT service to ensure every message sent is delivered within 15 seconds to more than 450 networks. This immediately gives Callforeign a huge international SMS footprint.
Henry Ong, COO of Callforeign said, “As more and more VoIP offerings come on the market, differentiation is increasingly crucial. Delivering SMS in this way adds to our mobile presence by giving our users a unique valuable extra service direct from our platforms.
“We selected TynTec because the quality of delivery and support we receive is unmatched. The company also has a heritage of helping Internet companies gain a mobile presence through SMS and was able to advise and deliver from a position of authority.”
Michael Kowalzik, CEO of TynTec said, “We are continually evolving our offering to help use the power of our underlying technology to take Internet brands mobile. The deal with Callforeign is an excellent example of how adding SMS can immediately provide these companies with an additional mobile presence.
“This provides a compelling extra service to attract new customers, at the same time as increasing use amongst existing users and reducing churn.”
