November 9, 2020: Denver, Colorado – MessageMedia Group, a global leader in business messaging has entered an agreement with Phizzle to acquire their SMS messaging business. The transition will allow Phizzle’s SMS customers to enhance their user experience and provide additional tools for communication.
Since 2008, Phizzle has been a messaging provider for small businesses and organizations in the sports and entertainment industries. Phizzle is moving away from messaging and is focusing resources on the Industrial Internet of Things. The decision to partner with MessageMedia Group was made to ensure continuity of services for existing organizations and to provide features and functionality that will allow organizations to be in a prime position for future success.
Doug Rubingh, President of MessageMedia US said, “We are excited to be able to support Phizzle customers moving forward who are all high-quality organizations. Our 300+ employees are focused on supporting organizations with a world class customer engagement platform and we believe we can add a lot of value to their customer messaging strategy.”
Ben Davis, CEO of Phizzle said, “SMS was our core business for 10+ years and allowed us to work with renowned sports teams and entertainment companies. In doing so, we created software innovations that create tremendous value in the Industrial Internet of Things for pharmaceutical manufacturing in particular and other industries. MessageMedia has a great platform and team who we believe will be the perfect fit for our customer’s needs.”
MessageMedia Group is a global messaging provider that helps businesses of all sizes — from SMBs to enterprise-level — better connect with customers. With more than 50,000 customers worldwide, MessageMedia drives business success by creating engaging mobile experiences that customers love.
Through partnering with MessageMedia Group, organizations using Phizzle services will be able to upgrade services and have a smooth transition with the assistance of Phizzle and MessageMedia Group employees.
