This year’s Messaging and SMS Global Awards were handed out at a ceremony in London this week, with Infobip walking away as the big winner.
The messaging company picked up four gongs at the Awards, running for the fourth time, at the ceremony in London’s Tower Hotel. The awards were for Best Messaging API, Best Messaging Innovation – Carrier Solution, Best Anti-fraud Innovation, and Best SMS/A2P Provider for the EMEA region.
The awards, which were judged by a panel of expert judges, covered five category areas: Best SMS/A2P Provider, Best Product/Service, Market Innovation, Projects, and Special Recognition.
Other big winners include Yuboto, who took home two awards – one for Best SMS Cloud Provider and one for Best Messaging innovation – Consumer.
Other double winners include C3ntro (Best Messaging Sales Team and Best Carrier Partnership), and Mahindra Comviva (Best Messaging Security Product and Best Messaging Innovatin for Enterprise Solution).
HGC Global Communications won an award for Best Strategic Partnership, while Indentidad Telecom took home the award for Best SMS/A2P Provider for the Americas. The final category of the tonight was for the much-lauded Best Global SMS/A2P Provider, and this was picked up by Vodafone Carrier Services.
Sophia Simpson, conference producer for Capacity Media, hosted the awards alongside Capacity deputy editor James Pearce. Simpson said: “Congratulations to all of our winners and thank you to all of those who submitted entries this year – we had some excellent submissions. I’d like to thank our sponsors, Infobip and C3ntro Telecom, for their support.”
