SMS as a Business Critical Mechanism

All relevant research point to an unprecedented and continuous growth of both mobile messaging traffic and revenue - even with the current economic crunch. Enterprise messaging is expected to grow significantly, according to Informa Telecoms; enterprises sent 81 billion application-to-person SMS in 2008. The volume is forecast to grow 17.8% year-on-year until 2013. A recent survey indicates that Short Message Service (SMS) mobile text messaging has blossomed into a critical mechanism enabling enterprises to instantly send urgent alerts and notifications to support customer service, marketing, emergency management, and other time-critical business functions. Further, half of the companies surveyed expect to increase their usage of SMS in the coming year due to the immediacy, mobility, and affordability that the medium offers.
