ForgetMeNot Africa

ForgetMeNot AfricaAccording to ForgetMeNot Africa’s Chief Operating Officer, Jeremy George, the company is already processing hundreds of thousands of eTXTs a day from Zimbabwe just two weeks after launch on the Econet network. Approximately 35% of those are SMSs initiated from mobile phones to the Internet.

Jeremy George revealed this to Techzim in an exclusive interview we had with him yesterday. We will post the interview on Techzim later today.

On the 6 mobile networks in Africa that are using the Message Optimizer (the platform on which eTXTs are processed), ForgetMeNotAfrica is processing millions of eTXTs a day. Currently, the messaging system is in use by Safaricom, Yu (both in Kenya), Glo (Nigeria), Warid (Congo Brazzaville) and Econet (Lesotho & Zimbabwe). The Message Optimizer core system infrastructure is in Hong Kong and London.

An eTXT is a message which can be sent and received seamlessly as an SMS, an email or chat message on any mobile operator’s network via SMS.

ForgetMeNot Africa Ltd. is a “software as a service” (SaaS) company specialising in unified messaging that supports interoperability between SMS, email and Instant Messaging clients for telecommunications operators. A ForgetMeNot Africa core product, the Message Optimiser, was recently implemented on the Econet network in Zimbabwe.
