With a strong technical background and almost two decades of experience in product development and designing, it is my passion to introduce market demanding solutions that help businesses to overcome the traditional challenges. In the telecom segment, Teleossco is known for the value addition because of the innovative product line and solution platforms that my team has introduced.
I also am the founder of other technology-driven startups and enjoy working with startups and grow products to next level. I have been part and driver of the technology products at the initial level and have seen companies growing from one-two digit to three-four digit in the number of employees.
2. Tell us about your venture, how did you come across the idea?
We aim to deliver the product which is business friendly, with business workflow integrated into it. This helps our clients to run their business having very less involvement at technicality. We want our clients to focus on their business, with complexity set apart.
TeleOSS’s Bulk SMS Gateway solution is one of the most leading software products in the VAS segment. With our strong experience in designing solutions for the SMS aggregators and resellers, we observed the increasing demand for bulk OTT messaging because of the surge in OTT players as well as smartphone devices. Due to the technical and regulatory conditions, SMS Aggregators were facing challenges in sending multimedia messages through SMS.
We have product architecture with a vision to add as many communication media as possible. We found that there exists a demand to have a unified messaging gateway which can support various chat software and OTT messages.
We decided to develop a launch an OTT Gateway solution which can not only integrate with now and future players but also communicates with SMS Gateway as well as Email servers for sharing personalized messages to customers. TeleOSS OTT Gateway is robust enough to work with multiple OTT platforms simultaneously, send emails and SMS on failover and integrate with existing telecom components seamlessly.
3. What inspired you to start the company?
Being in the SMS and OTT industry for a while, we know the in and out of challenges and issues faced by the Aggregators. There are many SaaS-based and open source SMS gateway solutions available in the market. SMS Aggregators choosing SaaS-based models end up paying the high cost for each message and on the other end enterprise customers negotiate for low cost messaging plans. In between the service provider and the enterprise customers, SMS Aggregators struggle for mapping their profit margin. We wanted to support the industry with the right product and solutions that help them in enhancing their business growth.
TeleOSS SMS Gateway and OTT Gateway are product based software solution which can be seamlessly deployed in the existing network. SMS and OTT aggregators can scale up their messaging volume to millions and billions without major rental or additional cost. Aggregators can also enable their enterprise customers to customize and personalize the messages using images, URL, videos, etc., making it more interactive. The software has been designed and developed to integrate and work with other components. Moreover, there is a dedicated development team which can help you customize the solution as per your business requirements.
4. Describe your company in 2–5 words?
Unified Messaging Platform including SMS and OTT
5. Why is now the time for your company to exist?
During the 90’s when the SMS service was started by the telecom operators, the volume of messages grew to a level where it was difficult for the telecom networks to handle them. Because of the inability to manage the SMS volume, operators started offloading the volume to smaller aggregators which gave birth to the SMS aggregator industry.
Similarly, with the increasing number of smart devices in the market, the world is moving towards the digital era where the communication channel will be soon shifted to online messages like OTT platforms. The market needs a robust and stable solution that can support the increasing number of OTT messages. Having learned from our past experience, we are ready to support and cater the ever-growing demand for bulk WhatsApp, Viber, etc. messages across the globe.
