LAS VEGAS, NV, and BASKING RIDGE, NJ — From CTIA WIRELESS 2010®, the company with the nation’s largest and most reliable wireless voice and 3G data network said that industries ranging from healthcare to education rely on Enterprise Messaging from Verizon Wireless to send large numbers of 450-character text messages to their workforce or customers reliably and safely from their “in-house” messaging applications or directly from an online self-serve portal. Enterprise Messaging is a secure solution for enterprise and government customers.

“Verizon Wireless’ Enterprise Messaging service is the answer for any organization considering an interdepartmental communication plan to alert key personnel in the field or for education administrators looking for a smart solution to send students, faculty and staff messages as part of a process- or event-driven communications plan,” said Mark Bartolomeo, vice president – global enterprise marketing for Verizon Wireless. “The Enterprise Messaging management platform allows organizations to communicate efficiently and cost-effectively via text messages to employees and customers directly on their wireless devices, plus reap the benefits of message tracking, reporting and list management.”

The Enterprise Messaging service from Verizon Wireless provides enterprise customers with a wide range of benefits, including:

 

  • Support for three protocols many businesses already have integrated into their existing systems:
    • Simple Network Paging Protocol (SNPP)
    • Wireless Communication Transfer Protocol (WCTP)
    • Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)
  • No spam filtering or volume threshold limitations
  • Group lists can be uploaded and synchronized for each protocol
  • Online self-serve portal in a secure environment with message delivery confirmation
  • Easy management and organization of specific messages for specific departments

Enterprise Messaging is available for organizations with at least 100 corporate-liable lines. Message recipients must first opt-in to receive messages. To ensure privacy and the integrity of the sender’s identity, the sender’s IP addresses and domains will be subject to authentication.

Business customers who would like to register for Enterprise Messaging should contact their Verizon Wireless Business Sales Representative at 1-800-VZW-4BIZ. For more information on products and services from Verizon Wireless, visit www.verizonwireless.com.
