Israel-based Smart messaging pioneer MMDSmart begins UK ops

MMDSmart’s geographic growth continues. After previously opening offices in the past year in Hong Kong and Russia, MMDSmart, the smart messaging pioneer, and a leading global supplier of innovative communications products, including VoIP and online fax solutions, announced today the opening of its first office in London, and appointed Mr Dylan Fernando, to manage its UK operations.
Demand for both its voice and messaging solutions have increased dramatically in the last 2 years. While many telecom companies have reported a marked drop in their voice revenue, MMDSmart’s business of innovative voice solutions grew by more than 50% in 2016. This occurred simultaneously to the launch of the industry’s first results driven enterprise messaging solution, the smart messaging platform, which has also spurred double digit growth in demand for its A2P messaging products.
Globally, the A2P market reached more than $55 billion USD in 2016, and industry sources expect the growth trend to continue as more and more enterprises and organizations of all sizes adopt this trusted and efficient method for communicating with their clients, and constituents.
“London is one of the global centers of the telecommunications industry and it became clear that we needed a local presence to continue to grow our business in the UK and the rest of Europe. Many of our partners have offices or are based in London so it was a natural choice for our first Western European office,” said Arie Frenklakh, CEO of MMDSmart. “Dylan has years of experience in the voice business in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, a wealth of industry knowledge and many high-level industry contacts, and we’re confident that he will be a valuable asset in expanding our organic growth, and acquiring new partners and business,” he added.
Prior to this appointment, Mr Fernando was Senior Carrier Relations Manager at Mundio/ Vectone Mobile, managing the carrier department and operations in London, Chennai & Jakarta. He has also been Strategic Consultant & Accounts Manager at Businessmobiles.com, Head Operations Manager at Nexellent Ltd, and Carrier Relations Manager at Tritel. Born in Colombo, Mr. Fernando is a long-time resident of London and completed his MBA from Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Mr Fernando added: “I’m thrilled to be joining the MMDSmart team which is well known throughout the industry for its innovative approach and products like the smart messaging platform. This is a wonderful opportunity to expand MMDSmart’s presence in Europe, leveraging my own experience to deliver personalized service to our new and existing clients in and around the region. MMDSmart’s suite of unique technology solutions position it as a very attractive partner for many leading telecom industry companies.”
