Syniverse’s Enterprise Messaging Services to Authenticate Global Myriad msngr App Users

Syniverse today announced a new multi-year agreement with Myriad Group to enable the authentication of global end users of the Myriad msngr app via Syniverse’s Mobile Enterprise Services. Myriad msngr has seen a steady rise in traffic, including a recent increase to 67 million registered users with significant peaks in Latin America.

As one of the region’s largest mobile messenger services, the agreement with Syniverse includes direct connectivity to numerous top-tier Latin American mobile network operators that enable increased speeds and stability for Myriad’s app subscribers.

“Syniverse demonstrated the agility and innovation needed to help us to simultaneously grow and streamline our business, opening up new growth opportunities around the globe,” said Stephen Dunford, CEO, Myriad Group. “As a result, our msngr subscribers, both new and existing, will benefit tremendously.”

When an end user registers with Myriad msngr over a mobile phone, Syniverse’s highly reliable platform will deliver a one-time verification code via SMS. The one-time code is delivered directly to the end user with low processing latency, subsequently allowing the user to complete the registration and activate the app.

An integral piece of the app registration process requires Myriad’s subscribers to receive SMS messages. Reliability is of critical importance. Syniverse has built a reputation for consistently delivering more than 700 billion messages annually in real time. By personalizing the user experience in the mobile moment, Syniverse’s services result in deepened customer touch points that increase brand affinity and revenue while promoting and protecting brands.

“With our work together, Myriad now has the means to seamlessly validate the identity of their subscribers via SMS anytime, and anywhere in the world to provide an extra layer of security that today’s mobile users are growing to expect with registration,” said Alfred de Cárdenas, President, Enterprise and Intelligence Solutions, Syniverse. “In tailoring the end-user experience, Syniverse can help increase loyalty and build brand advocates for Myriad msngr service.”

The agreement with Myriad continues a steady stream of Mobile Enterprise Services announcements, including agreements with Amazon China; U.K.-based mobile video service provider swanbay.tv; threaded messaging communication provider Boomerang; Chinese Internet portal Tencent; and Cleartrip, one of the leading online travel companies in India.

From simple text reminders to short video advertisements, the services empower mobile messaging operations to enable the reach, reliability and security that enterprises and over-the-top providers need to achieve business objectives. In addition to one-time passwords, Syniverse helps brands deliver other personalized, time-sensitive actionable information, including reminders, news of sales or promotions, weather alerts, public safety alerts and more.

Additional features include intelligent message processing, two-way messaging, and multilingual, multiple time zone support.
