GENEVA -- Echovox, a pioneer in the delivery and monetisation of mobile content, applications and services, today launched the first pan-European cross-network MMS ‘Chat’ service. MMS Group Chat will allow users to interact with multiple participants in a chatroom by sending both SMS and MMS messages in real time. The solution enriches existing SMS-based chatroom services through the addition of pictures, sound and video content.

MMS Group Chat is a complete turnkey application that allows companies to brand and market the service under their own name. The Echovox solution can go live within 24 hours of being installed, generating an immediate revenue stream. It is fully interoperable and companies that deploy MMS Group Chat will be able to target subscribers of all operators across 10 European countries. It is ideal for existing Internet chatrooms and online dating agencies looking to expand their services and exploit the mobile channel, making the most of the ubiquity of handsets to generate new sources of revenue.

David A. Marcus, CEO of Echovox, comments: “Developed in response to demand from over 50 of Echovox’s existing SMS Chat customers, MMS Group Chat builds on Echovox’s existing SMS credentials. SMS Chat, its precursor, enjoyed huge success across Europe and among Echovox’s top ten customers alone, the service has carries nearly 10 million messages per month. We are very excited about the potential of this market and believe that the reach, flexibility and safety features of this new application add up to a strong proposition.”
