ClearSky Technologies has announced the addition of Blue Wireless to the growing list of mobile operators using its national short code messaging service, iCode, enabling Blue Wireless subscribers to access more than 7,000 short code campaigns.
From promotional code discounts to restaurant loyalty programs, short codes are part of a multi-billion-dollar phenomenon and a competitive “must have” for wireless operators. Beyond voting for America’s next superstar, interacting with Twitter, or texting an inquiry to Google, short codes have become a vital tool for travel, finance and security.
“Our goal was to ensure that our subscribers had the same access to national short code programs as any other carrier, and with iCode, they have it!” said Barbra Leatherwood of Blue Wireless. “Our subscribers began interacting immediately.”
“When teaming up with our wireless carrier clients, we leverage the skills and expertise of both organizations, achieving the goal of being ‘Stronger Together.’ Close cooperation resulted in launching the service much faster than expected,” said ClearSky Vice President of Customer Success Management, Ron Willett. “Our reputation with the national aggregators facilitates quick approvals and reliable service.”
