US telecommunications companies Telinta, offering cloud-based, white label switching and billing solutions for VoIP service providers, and TextBetter, a provider of cloud-based business-texting services, have announced a joint initiative to deliver cooperative solutions for VoIP service providers. VoIP services such as hosted PBX, business and residential VoIP, and mobile connectivity accessible through Telinta’s cloud-based softswitch platform, can be integrated with this unique SMS solution.
The white label solution from TextBetter makes it possible for any US phone number to send and receive SMS via email. TextBetter SMS services can be easily added to Telinta’s hosted softswitch platform, without the need to change the ownership of the DIDs.
According to Telinta, “this powerful cloud-based combination of VoIP switching, billing, and SMS technology requires no software or hardware for service providers. TextBetter pairs the end user’s existing email with an associated phone number, so that SMS messages can be both sent and received via the end user’s existing email address and client.”
“TextBetter’s SMS solution unlocks tremendous value for VoIP service providers and resellers. Our partnership with Telinta represents an exciting new chapter for the VoIP Industry as a whole,” explained Dean Garfinkel, the TextBetter CEO.
Alex Ferdman, CEO of Telinta, stated, “Since 2002, Telinta has helped VoIP service providers around the world to differentiate themselves in the marketplace, using innovative cloud-based solutions offered by both Telinta and our partners. TextBetter is a unique and valuable addition to our comprehensive ecosystem of industry-leading partners.”
Anthony Stiso, Telinta‘s vice president of marketing and sales added, “A Telinta customer can use our specialized portals, billing and commissions calculation tools with any of our solutions in a way that helps them serve an unlimited number of resellers and distributors. The addition of TextBetter helps our customers to profit from the growth in SMS and other forms of messaging.”
