“The really nice thing about the text channel is that putting together a high-impact text project with short-term payback is relatively simple. Our technology allows for a 6-8 week ramp up with minimal IT support and a really small investment to get started.” That’s Curtis Rapp, Air2Web’s vice president of sales and marketing, talking enthusiastically about his favorite topic – the mobile messaging space.

Air2Web provides “connectivity into the carrier networks” for high-performance, highly specific messaging capabilities, and provides a hosted user interface where customers can create and schedule mobile marketing campaigns, such as a customer survey or an outbound coupon, he says. The metrics can be persuasive. A customer accessing his account via his cell phone can save the support center a $7 call.
