OzHosting.com Introduces Mobile Messaging Service Powered by Bulletin

Bulletin Messenger Enables A2P SMS and OTT Messaging for Parallels Automation Partners and their Customers

SAN DIEGO, CA, USA – June 2, 2014

BulletinOzHosting.com, a pioneer in Australia’s cloud hosting market, and Bulletin, a leading provider of cloud-based mobile messaging Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), today announced a partnership to bring innovative mobile messaging services to OzHosting.com’s business customers.

Parallels built-in support for Parallels APS has enabled OzHosting.com to provide Bulletin Messenger suite for seamless integration into its cloud delivery systems, and offer the services to its business customers in a quick and efficient manner.  OzHosting.com leverages Parallels Automation to automate business functions and back-end operations.

Application-to-mobile (A2P) messaging has seen rapid growth over the past five years as companies seek out new ways to communicate with their customers.  “The growth in A2P messaging continues to defy expectations.  Our new partnership with Bulletin enables our business customers using Hosted Exchange to communicate instantly with their end-users via SMS via email or web browser,” says Anthony Banek, CEO of OzHosting.com.

“Many service providers and hosting companies are unprepared to take advantage of the A2P messaging trend because they cannot yet provide their business customers with a feature-rich, easy-to-use, cross-platform messaging service,” adds Bruce Herbert, President of Bulletin.  “OzHosting.com can now roll out Bulletin’s SMS messaging and OTT services to their customers and begin generating revenue from the most profitable segments in the mobile industry.”

“Our partners are increasingly seeing the many advantages of our next-generation APS technology and its capabilities in bringing to market world-class services.  As businesses look for more ways to personally engage with their customers, and with recent industry research indicating that the A2P SMS messaging market will grow to $60 billion by 2018, Parallels is delighted to be part of this innovation with OzHosting.com and Bulletin,” comments Pavel Ershov, Vice President, Service Provider Business, Parallels Asia Pacific.
