SMS/800, Inc. Announces Launch of Texting & Smart Services Registry

SMS/800, Inc. has announced the launch of the Texting & Smart Services (TSS) Registry. Designed to serve as the centralized routing database for all multimedia services associated with Toll-Free Numbers, the TSS Registry is the system to support the growing demand for the text-enablement of Toll-Free Numbers. By text-enabling Toll-Free Numbers, Toll-Free Service Providers can broaden offerings to their customers, while messaging providers can now add Toll-Free services to their portfolios. This helps businesses expand the way in which they communicate with their customers as texting, along with other future multimedia services, allows for more convenient connections. For the TSS Registry, SMS/800 was chosen by CTIA, the wireless association that develops industry messaging guidelines, to operate the centralized registry for Toll-Free messaging and multimedia services. The TSS Registry integrates with the SMS/800 voice platform, helping to maintain the integrity of Toll-Free Numbers.
