Esendex signs 1,000th business 'texting' customer

* Market grows over 200 per cent in last year

Esendex, the leading provider of business text messaging solutions, continues to benefit from the ever-growing importance of SMS as an effective communications tool for companies wanting to keep in touch with their employees and customers.

The Nottingham-based company today announced that it has signed its 1000th customer, and that over 100 new customers are signing up to use its market-leading service every month.

The 1000th customer is Overview Mapping Ltd. It has integrated Esendex's SMS SDK as part of its location based services under the VeriLocation brand, one of the UK's largest mobile phone and fleet tracking providers in the UK.

And the good news for Esendex goes even further. Not only is the company attracting scores of new customers every month, but those companies using the service are also sending more messages than ever before.

This year, the number of 'texts' being sent by the average customer has increased by over 35 per cent over the same period.

Esendex now handles more than two million SMS messages every month, and many of its customers are using the technology for business-critical communications.

"Customers see texting as an affordable, reliable and non-intrusive form of customer and employee communication," said Esendex's managing director, Julian Hucker.

"We have seen our market grow by over 200 per cent in the last year as companies recognise that business texting is an affordable, reliable, effective and non-intrusive way to keep in touch with their employees and customers.

Esendex provides SMS messaging solutions to organisations of all sizes, including BAA, First Choice Airways, NTL, Parkers Price Guide, RAC Auto Windscreens and public sector organisations such as housing associations and police forces.

The company recently announced the opening of overseas offices in Barcelona, Spain and Melbourne, Australia.
