SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexmo, the leading cloud communication company, today announced a strategic partnership with Telerivet, a mobile messaging platform, to empower organizations to implement reliable, cost-effective, two-way mobile communications anywhere in the world. The partnership delivers an easy-to-implement SMS service for businesses, even those without developer resources, while expanding Telerivet's global reach.
Telerivet provides a cloud-based mobile messaging platform that enables small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) to effortlessly communicate with their customers, employees, and communities via SMS—even without any implementation expertise. Non-developers will now be able to take advantage of Nexmo's best-in-breed SMS deliverability—and help expand Nexmo's reach to a wider range of businesses and organizations globally.
"Nexmo is very excited to be working with Telerivet. The partnership between a global messaging provider and a service-builder platform has never been so seamless for end users," said Sassan Saedi, Head of Product Marketing and Channels at Nexmo. "With this partnership, no developer experience or resources are needed for companies to start communicating immediately with their customers. This is the first partnership in the market to leverage reliable, global SMS deliverability and optimal usability to finally make mobile messaging technology accessible to the 'long-tail' of organizations."
The partnership benefits smaller companies and non-profit organizations who might not have in-house developer resources or budget to hire outside consultants to implement a more complex solution. Telerivet's mobile messaging platform was designed to be flexible to meet the needs of SMBs and non-profits alike, making it easily adaptable to a wide range of use cases. Non-technical users can use Telerivet to easily create their own SMS messaging services from any web browser, without running their own servers or writing a single line of code. Users of the Nexmo – Telerivet integrated solution now have even more flexibility with access to Nexmo's SMS virtual numbers.
"Telerivet serves a wide range of businesses and organizations in over 150 countries globally, which can now take advantage of the new integrated solution with Nexmo," said Joshua Stern, CEO, Telerivet. "In the dozens of countries where Nexmo provides virtual numbers for two-way SMS communication, this partnership establishes Nexmo as the default method of sending and receiving SMS within Telerivet."
Examples of customers who could benefit from the integrated solution include:
- Online merchants sending order status notifications and providing customer service;

- Transport companies scheduling logistics with drivers;
- Event planners automating outreach to attendees;
