MessageCloud looks to strengthen presence in Eastern Europe
After a successful year, we are looking to expand operations into Eastern Europe. The move will deliver direct access to extensive networks in Czech Republic, Serbia and Slovenia for our clients and follows our recent entry into Luxembourg, Greece and Cyprus. We are in the process of localisation and set up on the ground in these markets and we look forward to launching throughout the next year.
MessageCloud founder Michael Whelan said: “We are really excited about our new base to service Czech Republic, Serbia and Slovenia – all countries with highly developed mobile markets.
“Direct connections with local carriers would allow businesses in these countries can benefit from local numbers, seamless messaging and direct carrier billing integration.
“Our expansion aims to provide full support with local expertise, know-how and practical help on the ground.”
Established for more than ten years, we deliver cloud-based SMS and messaging products that enable companies to set up and manage one-way and two-way communications. In addition, we also offer products to analyse phone numbers, verify users and accept payments by mobile.
Our popular Pay product, which allows the integration of mobile payment via direct carrier billing (DCB), has seen huge growth during the Covid-19 crisis as consumers increase their usage of home entertainment, streaming services and online gaming.
“With more than half of all web page views now taking place on a mobile device, DCB as a method of payment fits perfectly into modern-day lives so it is easy to see why growth in this area has been so dramatic.”
With a combined population of over 21 million, and more than 100% mobile penetration, Czech Republic, Serbia and Slovenia boast more than 26 million smartphones and over 17 million internet users (Digital 2020 October Global Statshot Report, Hootsuite / We Are Social).
