sometimes, it's better to pay more

- 5 MIN READ - 04 Jun 2015

Every company, whether it's a start-up or a large enterprise, is built to earn profits. This means that all companies are looking to find ways how to optimize running costs, and still be better than competition.

I have often come across companies who are looking to save money on messaging service by splitting quarter of cents and are ready to risk losing in delivery quality. At first you might think it will save you few tens or hundreds of euros per month, depending on size of your traffic. 

Using low prices usually means your messages are sent via third party connections or SIM farms where there are no interconnection fees calculated in the price. Nowadays, when operators are starting to protect their networks and filtering incoming traffic, that means that these low cost routes, also known as LCR, simply don’t work anymore and your messages will have a poor delivery quality.

So if you take a closer look and analyze what cutting back on quality might cause, then you have a question – is the money you saved worth it?

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.
