Here are some photos during the meet up with the the executives, Blue De Venecia - Globe Director was also there to give us insights about globe apps in connection with omytxt
90's was the era of flip phones, like the big ones aka "pampukpok". And so a lot of things happened , Martin and Gilbert together with friends from other telco industries kept brainstorming ideas regarding the changes beginning mid 2000 - present in he society.
• Financial crisis happened, they thought that the propensity of consumers to spend was damped, and some were scared to spend.
• Almost all people had cell phones.
• The introduction of social media specifically facebook.
Since there's already the social media platform Martin and Gilbert felt that conversation already can be done without sending text messages, that also helped damped the usage of cell phones a bit .
Here's a short background from Omytxt President Martin Nery and Director Jose Gilberto Paras
who has been to the telco industry since the 90's
It's time to change the model of messaging. Today it's mostly free for the guy who sends the message thru a mobile phone but the guy who replies get charged. This is the underserved market who wants to control user experience Omytxt is targeting. - Omytxt President Martin NeryLike any sms or phone call today, it's a calling party of place . A simple chat away without waiting for the guy to reply. This market segment was relatively untapped because the model has not been changed for the last decade. They also see some other elements like paypal, credit card payment online and gcash so might as well give a shot on it. And so they formulated Omytxt.com.
Omytxt is the first one that attempts to serve the underserved segment of the market wherein you don’t need to wait for a reply , you just buy credits online and continue sending messages online. - Director Jose Gilberto Paras
