Textlocal Acquired by IMI Mobile

Today, we are delighted to announce the recent completion of a successful business acquisition of Textlocal, by IMImobile PLC, a leading provider of mobile services which help businesses capitalise on the growth of mobile communication. This marks an exciting time for us as we move with pace into the larger mobile marketing and communications space, on a global scale.

We’re very excited to be joining IMImobile, who are a leading provider of software and services with 650 employees, dedicated to helping businesses in over 60 countries to help its client to engage and transact with their customers more efficiently through smarter mobile engagement products.

Our successful nine year history and respected reputation in the market place has brought about this opportunity to begin the next chapter of the Textlocal story. Our award-winning Messenger platform has been recognised as being the best in class by IMImobile and is now set to become a vital addition to their mobile engagement product.

This development means further enhancements throughout the business with consistent focus on customer service and service innovation. Our Messenger platform remains unchanged at present and there will be no disruption to the service that our customers receive.

As our Messenger platform is planned to be integrated with their own range of online solutions in the next six months, our recently released mobile voucher, loyalty and ticketing tool has been recognised as a dynamic force creating new revenue streams and driving customer engagement for our clients. Also, we will now be able to help our clients even further with deeper IT integration projects or bespoke and managed services, backed by IMI’s world class carrier grade platform and software solutions expertise.

Textlocal Managing Director, Jason Palgrave Jones commented: “We are delighted to be joining forces with IMImobile to strengthen our mobile messaging offering.

Textlocal work with clients of varying sizes, in a number of sectors, across the globe and we view this exciting partnership as another opportunity to increase our client reach and service offering in the market.”
