Transcontinental Interactive has partnered with innovative wireless network Wind Mobile to provide short code connectivity to its customers across the country. Short codes, significantly shorter telephone numbers that address SMS and MMS messages to and from a mobile phone, are often used to receive news and alerts, as well as to donate to charitable organizations or send information to some emergency services.
Some of the services Wind Mobile customers will now be able to subscribe to include transportation short codes for the TTC in Toronto and TransLink in Vancouver, Airport information for both Toronto Pearson International Airport and Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport as well as news alerts from CBC.
Transcontinental Interactive is a leader in strategy, content and multi-channel delivery systems. It is recognized for its quality of partnerships, flexibility, and ability to anticipate consumer demands using new communications platforms, including mobile, making the partnership with Wind Mobile a perfect fit.
“At Transcontinental Interactive, we are proud of the solutions we deliver and the relationships we have developed with companies such as Wind,” said Christian Trudeau, President of Transcontinental Interactive. “It is an honour to have such innovative businesses recognize Transcontinental as a company that is trustworthy and that delivers on its promise. We are thrilled to work with Wind.”
The Wind partnership represents another way that Transcontinental Interactive is demonstrating leadership in technology and marketing solutions. By working with Wind to provide short code connectivity for consumers, Transcontinental Interactive continues to extend its commitment to providing day-to-day solutions for its clients and end consumers.
“We chose to work with Transcontinental Interactive because of their expertise, reputation and exceptional service,” says Scott Campbell, CMO of Wind Mobile. “As well, we are impressed with Transcontinental’s ability to connect to other areas of the industry that will ensure the best possible platform for our consumers.”
