LAS VEGAS -- Kirusa, the world’s leading vendor of Voice SMS and a leading developer of mobile value added services, today announced the release of KV.SMS 4.0, the next generation of its industry leading Voice SMS product. The new product, which will be at the core of all future Voice SMS implementations, comes with enhanced features that enrich and improve the Voice SMS usage experience, generate additional revenue for the mobile operators, and at the same time provide several industry firsts.

Kirusa Voice SMS product now supports seamless interoperability between carriers. In countries where multiple carriers have deployed Voice SMS, interoperability allows mobile subscribers to retrieve Voice SMS messages at no cost, using their familiar user interface, regardless of whether the sender is on the same network or on another network. Kirusa had earlier announced the world’s first exchange of Voice SMS messages between carriers, based on the technical specification developed by the GSM Association, the worldwide trade association for the mobile phone industry.

Some of the other advanced features that simplify and enrich the user experience include: International Voice SMS, allowing subscribers to send a voice message abroad, when convenient, without having to worry about time zone differences or the high cost of international voice calling, with the recipient able to retrieve and reply easily; Speed Codes, a fast and convenient way to compose or forward a Voice SMS message; Outbound message delivery, an ability to deliver Voice SMS messages using outbound calls; Background Music, allowing users to enrich and personalize the content in a simple way.

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."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
