FrontlineSMS and FrontlineCloud has added txtNation to deliver SMS messages on their latest version of their Cloud Technology.

FrontlineSMS was one of the first platforms to help harness the power of mobile technology for social change. Having seen how SMS was widely used in sub-saharan Africa in 2004, their Founder Ken Banks built and launched the first prototype of FrontlineSMS in 2005.

Skipping forward, in 2014, FrontlineSync, added a new Android SMS gateway app. Together, FrontlineSMS, FrontlineCloud and FrontlineSync provide end-to-end support for our users for SMS and missed calls, whoever and wherever they are. They deliver on the tremendous potential of the professional use of SMS to engage customers, clients, and citizens, through their platforms, consulting, the community they bring together and the resources wthey share.

You can see how customers are using Frontline below, using txtNation’s gateway for both One-Way Bulk SMS and Two-Way SMS.

txtNation has finalised a deal with a UK mobile apps development team, responsible for creating mobile apps for restaurants and eateries all over the UK and Ireland.

txtNation is now working with over 500 apps in the marketplace with over 100 developing specifically for high street eateries.

Using txtNation’s Bulk SMS Gateway and Virtual mobile numbers, app developers worldwide can create compelling two-way SMS communications.

The integration allows compete SMS ordering via their mobile site, app or advertisement, built within a full integrated ordering system.

Michael Whelan CEO txtNation, commented “Our virtual numbers enable SMS and voice communications to eateries all over the country. They have proven extremely popular, instead of short codes which can be cost prohibitive for each franchise, as well as being dedicated, serving the functionality of a normal mobile number. If a user wants to order they SMS, if they want a menu they SMS and if they want a receipt they get an SMS.

Working with app developers directly has resulted in SMS functionality built into their apps as well as the eateries other direct channels. The biggest advantage of course, is that users can be ‘off site’ or ‘off app’ to be able to interact with the eatery.”

  • Nearly all MNO’s see the advantages in OTT and being part of the action.
  • Over 3/4 of MNO’s want OTT partnerships to bolster revenues.
  • Nearly half of MNO’s want to partner with Facebook and WhatsApp.

With P2P voice and SMS messaging revenues in decline over recent years, network operators are needing to look to alternative revenue sources.

Over the last several years txtNation has been building up its messaging and billing footprint to facilitate such service models, highlighting chat and dating as the fastest growth area. txtNation are currently working with many OTT providers across mobile messaging and several social services across mobile operator billing.

Making use of txtNation’s Virtual Mobile Numbers (aka. long numbers) and enabling multi-communications, true two-way interaction is now possible for OTT application developers worldwide.

txtNation CEO, Michael Whelan comments “We have added significantly to our coverage in Virtual Mobile and SMS routing over the past year, tying up deals with many worldwide network operators. We will continue to build on this growth and coincide this with existing technologies like short codes.

My vision is simple; the future of the phone number being virtual and to enable Voice activation alongside SMS, building on our successes and bringing MNO’s back into the mix! Making them relevant for such high growth OTT services.”

txtNation want to change the way in which operators participate in OTT, allowing users to take complete control of their messaging and voice flow across all communication channels, giving the mobile customer the choice on how to develop their conversations.
