Tatango, the Seattle-based SMS service firm, announced it’s public launch. With over 500,000 users nationwide and over 25 million text messages sent since their private launch. Tatango aims to revolutionize group text messaging, allowing any group the ability to send and receive group text messages for free from the web or their own mobile phone.
Tatango has quickly become the leader in mobile group communication. The launch out of private beta was marked with a complete redesign of their homepage to better convey the message of “one to many” group communication.
Groups can now ditch their slow, inefficient email lists and phone trees, for the convenience of mobile group communication. With the development of Tatango, any group can now collect, manage and mobile message all of their group members via SMS with ease.
According to a recent Gartner forecast, more than 2.3 trillion SMS text messages will be sent across major markets worldwide in 2008, up 19.6 percent from the 1.9 trillion in 20071.
“SMS has become the most popular form of communication, yet there has been no website that has made this technology easily accessible to groups. We’ve developed Tatango exclusively, to fill this demand.” Said Derek Johnson, CEO and founder of Tatango. “Our mission at Tatango has always been to improve group communication through the use of mobile phones, with Tatango, we have achieved this.”
