Tampa Bay Telecommunications Company, Mobex and Haneke Design Collaborate on Ground-Breaking Application That Enables Text Messaging Between Clients and Businesses.
TextOurCompany Makes Existing Landlines, Toll-Free Phone Numbers Text-Friendly
Tampa, FL — (Aug. 21, 2017) — Phone calls can either be a lifeline or a landmine for businesses. If calls go unanswered, or if callers are left waiting on hold, it can leave callers frustrated, inconvenienced and even cause them to give up and take their business elsewhere.
Mobex, a Tampa-based telecommunications provider helps businesses better connect with their customers through new technology that uses existing business phone numbers to receive and respond to texts sent from their customers’ phones.
TextOurCompany by Mobex streamlines communication between businesses and consumers with ease, efficiency and affordability. Landlines, as well as toll-free numbers, currently associated with a business can be enabled to receive SMS text messages using this technology.
Those messages are immediately accessible from computers, tablets and smart phones.
What truly sets TextOurCompany apart from other technologies are the person-to-person capabilities it offers. Rather than pre-established, scripted messages, users send a specific text and receive either an automatic reply acknowledging receipt of their text or an actual response from a real person. And the exchanges can all be accomplished without having to change the company’s current voice provider.
The chat application developed by Haneke Design of Tampa for Mobex allows the texts to be accessed via a single computer as well as multiple screens, depending on the company’s requirements.
“The idea came from a personal experience I had when I contacted my vet about medication for my dog. I knew that there had to a better way for me to connect with them, get the information I needed and not have to call back or be placed on hold while they helped other people and their pets,” said John Dalyrmple, president and founder of Mobex.
“Haneke Design was able to swiftly take our idea and turn it into reality. In a startup environment, working with a local team was crucial for us. The ability to quickly make changes and be nimble made the process seamless.”
One of the best parts of the application for any business is that the it allows text enabling for a number without the business having to change service providers. This seamless transition will save companies time and money.”
“Seeing how Mobex has been able to pivot into a new market for SMS technology was an inspiring project for Haneke Design to be a part of,” noted Jody Haneke, president & founder of Haneke Design. “We are always looking to team up with local disruptors and people solving the real needs of businesses across any industry.”
TextOurCompany by Mobex won the first-place award in technology at the 2017 New Venture Expo held at the University of Tampa in April. The New Venture Expo is part of the Spartan Incubator program, a program designed for community members to join the Tampa Bay ecosystem and build their businesses.
