Message Bus Offers Industry First Quality of Service Guarantee for On-Time Delivery of Transactional Email

CORTE MADERA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- Message Bus, pioneer of cloud-based infrastructure for email, mobile and social messaging, today announced the first ever email guarantee for transactional and triggered emails that take the form of password resets, delivery confirmations, abandoned shopping cart notifications, receipts and other interactive messages. Transactional emails sent through Message Bus' Global Delivery Network will be generated and handed off to a receiving ISP in 30 seconds or less. The newly released Global Delivery Network is a service that lets enterprises, email service providers and application developers send trusted messages at scale: https://www.messagebus.com/message-bus-launches-cloud-native-service-sending-trusted-email-mobile-social-messages-scale/.

With today's email guarantee, Message Bus is putting a stake in the ground and will over time drive this guarantee down to even shorter time frames thereby delivering on the promise of blazingly fast modern cloud architectures.

"The first communication many users have with a given company or web property, mobile or otherwise is through the transactional email that confirms their registration," said Jeremy LaTrasse, CEO and Co-Founder of Message Bus. "This is an organization's chance to make a lasting first impression, and it's surprising that no one has provided any kind of quality of service guarantee to ensure this critical message type is delivered on time, every time. We believe every company will respond favorably to this guarantee as every single organization engages in some form of transactional messaging."

Consumers rely on transactional email to close the loop on purchases and interactions and as auditing references and reminders. However, the audit trail isn't the only benefit of transactional email, abandoned shopping cart emails and other forms of triggered email account for up to 60% of new revenue according to research from Jupiter. Transactional email that is delayed, blocked, poorly timed or routed to the spam folder can negatively impinge on a brand's reputation. According to the same survey, 54% of marketers stated that marketing content included in transactional or triggered campaigns helped drive brand awareness. With so much riding on highly focused and targeted messages, companies need a quality of service guarantee to prioritize the transmission of these emails.

Along with driving top-line revenue growth, automated transactional email delivered on time can also provide significant cost savings. According to Gartner, companies have saved upwards of $600,000(1) a year in customer service costs by leveraging automated transactional email systems. Gartner estimates that 20-30%(2) of all helpdesk calls are for password resets while Forrester research puts the average help desk call for a password reset at around $70(3).

All the research points to the indisputable importance of the transactional and triggered message type. Up until now, no company has prioritized these messages by giving them an effective high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane to ensure timely delivery. Message Bus separates transactional and marketing email at the level of the IP and then through complex rules and self adjusting telemetry feedback, delivers on the promise that transactional messages bound for customer inboxes will arrive on time and on target. By expediting and prioritizing these emails, companies will ensure their brand's awareness in customer inboxes and close the loop on digital interactions quickly and efficiently.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for s...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
