MessageMedia helps businesses optimize how they communicate and engage with their customers.

Who we are

We are a technology company that helps businesses across many messaging use cases.

What we do

We connect businesses to their customers through our web portal, API connections, and software partners

Why we do it

Our mission is to deliver a turnkey solution for businesses to communicate and captivate seamlessly.

What ignited our passion

It all started with an idea that was brought to life by Grant Rule in 2000. He saw the vast potential of the humble text message.

A simple prototype and an SMS gateway later, MessageMedia quickly became the market leader in Australia… and has since expanded globally. Our love of technology and problem-solving has led us to be trusted by more than 65,000 customers worldwide and integrated into over 85 leading software systems.

Helping businesses create two-way conversations
with their customers when and where it suits
them will deliver better results.
