ProTexting, one of the industry leaders in providing text messages (SMS and MMS) services to businesses of any size throughout the United States, is now available in more than 200 countries.
According to ProTexting CEO Kalin Kassabov, “There are currently close to 5 billion people using mobile devices globally. SMS messaging is now one of the most popular ways to communicate and keep in touch with clients and team members. We’ve helped businesses in the U.S. make the most of this technology and we recognize that text messaging isn’t just an American but a worldwide trend that is growing. We want to do our part to let people all over the world benefit from our services.”
The ProTexting team has recently modified the system to accept all special characters within SMS messages, giving clients the ability to send messages in all languages. This function will make it easy for businesses to engage with their customers via text message no matter what language they speak.
Users around the world will be able to enjoy the same robust ProTexting platform already popular with many U.S. businesses by using any of the available 2-way long codes. Long codes, which are dedicated 10-digit phone numbers that allow users to send and receive messages from anywhere in the world.
Long codes are becoming popular as a way to deliver more personal messages using traditional looking phone numbers (rather than short codes, which are only 5 or 6 digits). As a result, the ProTexting team has decided to provide international coverage via long code.
Kassabov says, “We will soon start to gradually provide plans for several countries at a time. Current customers can easily purchase subscriptions to international plans as well.” The worldwide expansion will begin in United Kingdom, Australia, Hong Kong, Canada, and the United Arab Emirates. From there it will expand to many other countries.
