Garland Words Choose MPP Global’s Web And Mobile Solutions For Greetings Cards

MPP Global Posted by MPP Global on Tuesday, 30 October 2007

Garland Words has selected MPP Global to create a combined online and mobile solution for the sale and delivery of greetings cards to mobile phones. The greetings cards can be purchased off a website using card payments or purchased directly from a mobile phone. The service also provides the personal touch – each card is delivered as if sent directly from the customer!

A strong requirement for Garland was the ability to sell the cards directly from a website as well as press advertising. The straightforward nature of the mobile sales process means that a single SMS message can define which card is required, who is going to receive that card, and also complete payment for that card. Darren Garland, Garland Words’ CEO, said: “MPP Global’s ability to provide a cross-platform solution that made buying a card as easy as possible from any location convinced me that they were the right choice”.
