SANTA MONICA, CA (February 18, 2015) – TigerText, a provider of secure, real-time messaging for the enterprise, today announced it has been named a Gold Member to the Verizon Partner Program. Now, Verizon Enterprise Solutions customers who contract for TigerText’s services will receive a singular monthly bill from Verizon enabling them to view their collective charges online via their Verizon Account.
TigerText’s secure messaging platform and mobile app aim to safeguard communications and reduce the risks associated with employees using text messaging for business purposes, especially in the healthcare, insurance and financial sectors. Users can access the secure and private network on their own smartphone, helping to increase flexibility, productivity and accountability in their daily communications.
“Now that TigerText is available to Verizon customers, we’re able to provide our services more efficiently,” said Mike Vitale, Senior Vice President of Channel Sales at TigerText. “As the leader in the secure texting market, we are providing additional value to our clients that rely on TigerText for sending and receiving sensitive and private information as it provides a fast, efficient way to communicate.”
TigerText capabilities include message recall, set message lifespans, group messaging, file and media attachments, as well as a multi-directory data hierarchy in which employees can easily add colleagues to their private network, or securely communicate with personal contacts outside their company. With its easy-to-use interface, organizations that deploy TigerText typically experience high adoption rates and improved communications within their workforce.
“Making it convenient for the end customer is always our goal, and our collaboration with TigerText enables enterprise customers to have a secure, flexible and fast experience,” said Adam Famularo, Vice President of Global Channels at Verizon. “Enabling a singular invoice provides a powerful customer benefit that can lead to additional sales and revenue opportunities.”
TigerText is available for download for free on Apple and Android devices. Premium functionality, which enables enterprises to configure and control messaging for all staff, is available for a per user monthly fee. Users can sign up through TigerText by contacting 310-401-1822 or contacting their Verizon representative.
TigerText provides secure, real-time mobile messaging for the enterprise, empowering organizations to work more securely. TigerText’s encrypted messaging platform keeps communications safe, improves workflows, and complies with industry regulations. Developed to address the security needs, BYOD policies, and message restrictions in the enterprise, TigerText is committed to keeping mobile communications secure, private and impermanent. More than 5,000 facilities and four of the top five largest for-profit health systems in the nation, including Universal Health Services, rely on TigerText to comply with HIPAA and replace unsecured SMS text messaging that leaves protected health and other confidential information at risk.
