iconectiv selected as exclusive provider of port corrected data

iconectiv, an authoritative partner of the global communications industry, has announced that the iconectiv MobileID offer has been selected to exclusively provide port corrected numbering data, the company said.

This service is critical to help foreign operators route calls and SMS sent to Spanish residents from businesses outside the country, mainly when the Spanish number is ported.

The iconectiv solution enables a richer, more valuable user experience by ensuring the right calls and messages reach the right customers. The solution also reassures businesses located outside Spain that they can reach a customer in-country via their mobile device, helping to maintain the long-distance customer relationship.

The service is being deployed at a time when SMS text messaging in particular has become a preferred medium of communication between many companies and their customers for loyalty programs, service updates, promotions and more. The popularity of the medium is reflected in studies that have shown 98% of text messages are opened by consumers versus 22% of emails, 90% of messages are read in the first three minutes of receipt, and mobile offers are redeemed 10 times more frequently than print offers.1

iconectiv´s port corrected data services also enable cost-effective routing of calls and SMS text messages to customers in Spain.
