KVSMS 4.0 incorporates many technical advancements and performance enhancements. The product provides support for additional charging interfaces, variable length Voice SMS messages, and allows third party applications to send and receive Voice SMS messages, thereby enabling a new class of mobile applications from partners.
“The Kirusa Voice SMS solution has been used by millions of mobile subscribers around the world, and their experiences and feedback helped give shape to KV.SMS Version 4.0,” said Dr. Inderpal Singh Mumick, CEO of Kirusa. “This approach to fostering innovation in the mobile industry is helping create a new environment that will change the way people share emotions in the future."
