Announcement on Yahoo Finance can be viewed here: "Texting Base Secures Patent for Personalized Texting.”
When I got the news, a wave of unusual emotion swept over me. This is an exciting time for all of us at Texting Base. We can now say "Texting Base invents personalizing group text messages” because we did, and we have the patent to prove it.
The patent for invention number 9,516,478 B2 is a system or method for including functionality which requires a primary user to upload contact information having unique recipient data, storing the data into a database and create group messages having core content and unique recipient data.
The patent covers the end-to-end process of handling and displaying data into a group message, the system and process for handling the data, the interface and the protocol so each recipient receives a unique and personal message.
I’ll put together a follow up post on the behind the scenes of what it took to make this happen, that’s a story of its own.
This news gives us tremendous momentum as we enter 2017. Wait until you see what we have in store for you next!
Hope everyone has an amazing Christmas, Kwanza, Festivus or Hanukkah...whatever you celebrate, be safe and THANK YOU for all your support.
