Imagine all the people being connected

- 5 MIN READ - 10 Mar 2013

Have you ever wondered how many people actually own or use mobile phone?

Recent studies have shown that by the year 2017 there will probably be 5 billion unique mobile subscribers all over the world. Whereas by the year 2012 the number was approximately 3.2 billion, which is a bit less than half of the world population. This fact shows, that in less than 5 years, the mobile industry is expected to grow and spread even more, reaching countries and regions which do not even yet have proper infrastructure.

It is obvious that the growth is decreasing in developed countries and increasing in developing countries. For example in Africa, only one third of the population is in the list of mobile subscribers.

Who’s to say that the whole world must be covered with mobile networks? Still, we see how these crazy technical ideas and solutions have helped us in our every day life, in business and most of all keeping in touch our loved ones. Needless to say, one can not even imagine the amount of new cool services that can be built on such powerful platform of communication.

I am anxious to see, how does the growing number of mobile network users impact the mobile services industry, as well as the usage of smartphones.

Recently, I’ve had several discussions about company culture. And here’s a common question: How do you build a culture that supports growth and create a workplace that everyone’s happy being part of?

In today’s world, it feels like the technology changes faster than we can keep up. As technology becomes even more ingrained in our lives, it’s obvious, that for our own good, regulations need to evolve as well. And it’s extremely important that business owners and leaders understand new regulations to adapt in the best way possible.

Scrub customer databases and make SMS more effective

31 Oct 2017

It’s often that we are asked, “what is your average delivery rate in (fill in the blank) country?” People usually expect an answer like, “98%.” Yet cost efficiency and SMS conversion is more important than a percentage number; without context it doesn’t mean anything.

The more important question pertains to how delivery rates are calculated. Let’s point out that there are mobile operators in some countries that do not send delivery reports, or if they do, they are unreliable. Is the delivery rate statistic based on messages sent and the number of messages that received a “delivered" status? That is the most common and brutally simplified way to calculate delivery rate. First of all, in fact, it is best practice to start with clarifying whether or not the mobile number databases contain phone numbers that are deliverable.
