Greetings from TechnoDG...
This announcement is to inform you about the Web Based SMS’s operator prices which are getting increased from May 15th 2018. As you may know, there has been operator consolidation with several smaller operators exiting the Indian telecom industry, and others merging, such as Vodafone and Idea, given that the industry economics and market dynamics have been less favourable for Telcos in India, compared to other international markets. With this industry consolidation, 3 key players (Airtel, Vodafone and Reliance Jio) are driving market pricing, capacity volumes and QoS benchmarks for all Indian telco mobility solutions.
Though several telecom operators had started increasing their SMS prices over the last 9 months, we absorbed those initial increases, but the price increase notification that was received last week, is a steep change in Application-to-Person (A2P) messaging cost. Given this, we have no option but to increase our pricings as well. So the new pricing will be applicable from May 15th 2018 onwards depending on your slab volume, successfully submitted to the operator. GST will be charged additionally as applicable.
In this process of implementation your SMS account will remain inactive from 14th May 2018 to 15th May 2018. No SMS operation can be processed through online web portals/applications.
As you know, TechnoDG is always in process over the years, to enhance the customer satisfaction, retention and acquisition experiences. We would like to thank you for your trust, and will ensure that we will continue to provide you with the quality of service and innovative solutions to meet your business needs.
