Textlocal are Highly Commended at the World Communication Awards 2016

Holding their own against stiff competition from major global companies, Textlocal’s Messenger platform was ‘Highly Commended’ in the Best Small Business Service category at the World Communication awards hosted at Wembley Arena on 1st December.

One of the most prestigious award ceremonies in the global communications world, with entries from a diverse set of providers and countries, the nomination alone is a sign that the Messenger platform offers something unique to businesses.

A panel of eighteen judges made up of senior executives from some of the most successful companies in the global communications sphere whittled down the mass of entries; Textlocal were shortlisted alongside Vodafone, AT&T and Turkcell.

Awards were given out to companies who showed great results for their clients, so the ROI that Messenger is delivering for customers clearly impressed the judges. Whether it’s Carnage UK, who received a 50% increase in online ticket sales within 4 hours of a send, or the English National Opera who made £8,000 gross profit with an ROI of 16:1, the success of the platform is clear.

Textlocal Managing Director, Jason Palgrave-Jones, had this to say about our commendation: “It comes as no surprise to me that the judges recognised the potential in Messenger. For 10 years, our dedicated technical team have been building and improving the platform to meet the needs of all of our customers, so I’m pleased that our hard work has been rewarded.

“It’s a real honour to even be nominated against such strong names as AT&T and Vodafone, and it’s great to see that we’re able to hold our own in such a competitive arena. We’ve got great things planned for the platform in the future, so I hope to see us taking the top award next time!”
