(PRWEB) October 11, 2006
Esendex, the global provider of business text messaging solutions, today announced the next stage in its overseas expansion strategy with the launch of a new subsidiary in France and the website http://www.esendex.com/fr.
The Nottingham-based company already has operations in Australia, Ireland and Spain, and has opened Esendex France in Paris to deliver its affordable, reliable and effective SMS services to this fast growing market.
Esendex has appointed a new manager and team to support the operation, which will exploit the company’s significant investment in its back office systems and direct connections to the world’s leading mobile network operators.
With this infrastructure, Esendex France will offer the highest levels of service from the outset, with the capability to send tens of millions of messages every month.
“Our research shows that, despite a slow initial take-up, the French SMS market is expanding rapidly and is similar to where the UK was two years ago. We aim to capitalise on this growth market,” said Julian Hucker, managing director of Esendex.
“In the UK, we now have over 2000 customers and send well over four million text messages every month, many of them critical to the success of our customers’ businesses.
“This puts us in the best position to advise French businesses on how they can use text messaging to improve communication, and to deliver a leading edge solution that is both affordable and reliable to use.”
Esendex customers, in France, do not need to pay any upfront charges and can benefit from a wide range of plans designed to support all levels of usage. Uniquely Esendex offers its customers in France a 2-way service that allows them receive as well as send SMS messages.
