Infobip, a global cloud communications platform company for businesses, strengthens its commitment to help drive growth and customer loyalty through its data-driven conversational journeys. This is powered via its enhanced array of Communications Platform-as-a-Service (CPaaS) solutions.
To lead businesses in their adoption of omnichannel cloud communications solutions, Infobip expanded its range of customer touchpoints, the widest in the market, to engage customers as early as possible and throughout their journey.
As the company edges closer to an IPO in the United States, Infobip recently acquired Anam, an SMS firewall service provider that offers solutions to more than 80 mobile network operators (MNOs) and services over 606 million users across the world.
This strategic acquisition strengthens Infobip’s position as the first choice for MNOs, including those in the Philippines, through enhanced product and service offerings. Their combined product portfolio for MNOs represents a proposition to mobile operators that will also benefit subscribers. This includes best-in-class SMS Firewall; SMS Hubs; SMS Center (SMSC) functions; CPaaS; Rich Content Services (RCS); and Authentication & Verification.
“The addition of Anam’s service offerings allows Infobip to better equip our telecommunications partners in the Philippines, further enabling them to connect with their customers seamlessly and efficiently,” said Charist Montenegro, country manager, Infobip Philippines. “The latest data from the Digital 2021 report of We Are Social and Hootsuite showed that there were 152.4 million mobile connections in the Philippines in January 2021. This number represents 138.2% of the country’s population as many Filipinos have more than one mobile connection.”
Google Business Messages
Infobip also integrated Google’s Business Messages, a mobile conversational channel that enables customers to engage with brands directly through Google Search and Maps, into its CPaaS offerings.
