Omagh, Ireland (PressExposure) September 23, 2008 -- Northern Ireland-based web design company, Webdistortion, has announced the launch of a new text message marketing facility that will enable its clients and partners to target their customer base via SMS using an innovative, user friendly interface that can be hosted on the clientâs own website.
Webdistortion MessageMate is a fully featured SMS marketing system that allows online businesses to target potential customers easily, quickly and directly using bulk text messaging.
Visitors can opt in to receive information and updates from their favourite websites, or the client can import their existing contacts and start sending straight away for a flexible, cost effective way to market their website. Best of all, users can personalize their messages with a customerâs name, making this a highly effective, hard-hitting tool for any web manager.
âI decided a few months back that there must be a better way for web managers and marketers to tap into the SMS text marketing arena - and the idea for MessageMate was born. It is vendor independent, meaning that we can integrate it with any of the major SMS Gateways available on the web today. If you have an already existing account with an SMS provider, we can provide you with a version to work with them,â said Webdistortion owner, Paul Anthony.
Features of the new product include admin/contributor user profiles, fully skinable frontend/backend, ASP.NET Themes, CSS Support, API to allow third party integration and multiple SMS Gateway support. It runs on Windows servers running ASP.NET 2.0+ (Visual Basic) and SQL Server versions 2000, and 2005 (including Express versions). Full source code is provided with the system, as well as a pre-compiled version, which makes it easier for clients to amend the system if required.
