Two decades of SMS continuance

- 5 MIN READ - 30 Nov 2012

We have seen remarkable evolution of text messaging for around 20 years and more importantly – have learned a lot along the way. The very first SMS was sent by a 22 year old British engineer Neil Papworth on 3rd of December 1992 wishing Richard Jarvis Merry Christmas. The occasion set off a revolution in the way we connect today and evolved text messaging since then. For years SMS has been used ingeniously and extensively across the world and plain simplicity of text messaging technology have had an incredible impact across all continents.

How we help with the regulations of global messaging

26 Jun 2017

Forgoing the need to integrate network operators everywhere you need messages delivered is one of the main advantages of using a global messaging platform. Each connection includes legalities, which includes reviewing several agreements and negotiating terms, and technical tasks, like setting up the connections. So, a single company going through this process on their own would invest a lot of time doing things that have already been done by a messaging platform. Also, the company would end up with higher pricing from network operators, as it has much less traffic.

Your sales lab time is scarce

In the series about sales research, I touched upon allocating about 30% of your research time on finding new ideas and possibilities around sales tactics. But how do you actually do it and what do you look for?

An open letter to financial institutions from Yuriy

09 Jun 2017

To the bank, credit card company, and investment firm I work with: I trust you. I really do.

If I didn’t, I wouldn’t put my hard-earned money in your hands. While I’m not a Certified Financial Analyst, I am financially savvy, so I understand that we have a mutually beneficial relationship. From a high-level, banks use the money I deposit to sell loans and invest in other financial instruments. Credit card companies make money on interest charges, other fees, and transaction fees from merchants. The brokerage firm makes money through fees on my account. On the other hand, all I expect is that you are honest about your services, provide returns, and keep my money safe.
