GLOBETECH -- One of the quiet success stories is the revenue flowing from premium SMS or subscription text alerts in Ireland. Companies like Globetech partner with content providers to offer a range of subscription based SMS alerts. Customers (anyone with a mobile phone) can opt to receive information via SMS text on a daily, twice weekly, weekly or triggered by an event, basis. These are paid for using premium rate SMS, and all revenue is shared.
The most common SMS alerts include horoscopes, breaking news, sports scores, travel alerts, lotto results and weather forecasts.
Globetech develops hand-held software applications like two-way SMS.
