FastSMS chosen as Best SMS Messaging Platform 2015
We’ve had quite a ride here at fastsms. Last month we were featured in Corporate Vision Magazine. This month, we’re proud to announce we’ve been selected Best for SMS Technology – UK & Best Messaging Platform – UK by Technology Innovator Awards 2015.
Earlier this year we released NetMessenger 2. This major release of our SMS web-based platform was a huge step toward embracing new technology that enables us to add features and respond to customer requests faster than our competitors. Oliver Burt, our Marketing Director describes it this way:
“We’ve always developed all of our systems in-house with our own dedicated development team. We rebuilt our entire messaging system on BootStrap and have been able to ramp up the rate of development significantly.”
The recognition from Corporate Vision magazine, its readers, the Technology Innovator Awards committee, and our customers feels wonderful. We’re grateful to everyone that voted for us and we’re excited to continue our mission to make SMS messaging easy and affordable for everyone.

SMS was once considered to be a dead technology, but the humble text message has proved it’s around for the long haul. And what with Nokia reintroducing the iconic 3310 with its never-ending battery life and non-smart interface, straightforward texting fits right into our busy lifestyles.
One of our newest team members is Jordan, who joined us earlier this year. We asked him to answer some questions so our customers could get to know him better. He manages a variety of sectors so take a few moments and find out how Jordan can help you with SMS messaging.
It’s been an exciting year here at fastsms. We’ve pulled the highlights together and asked Operations Director Sandy Burt to give us his thoughts on this year, and what he’s looking forward to in 2017.
