Gourmetiz.com – Gourmet is Gourmetiz

Gourmetiz.com sells artisan food products from European producers to European customers. Being a foodie is much more than a question of taste buds; it’s about sharing other values such as respecting the environment, supporting local farmers, sustainable development and the discovery of cultural specialties. Gourmetiz.com believe in the promotion of these ideals should be affordable to all and for this reason we put producers and customers into direct contact. There is no intermediary, so the prices are kept as low as possible while securing quality produce remains our fundamental goal.

Sent.ly – Local phones. Global Reach.

Sent.ly lets merchants set up a localized SMS gateway on their Android phones. Setting up a Sent.ly account to sending the first SMS using the simple HTTP API takes less than 5 minutes. Sent.ly also allows for SMS replies that can be handled automagically – allowing for full customer interactivity. Expanding operations – no sweat, just add more phones as needed, and Sent.ly scales up.”

Small-scale e-commerce operators have not had a reliable and scalable means of interacting with their customer base. SMS is the medium of choice given the “greater-than-100%” mobile penetration everywhere in the world. Existing solutions involve using SMS gateway providers, but these usually come with set usage quotas and are specific to a country / region. These solutions need to be re-worked when operations expand to other countries and do not provide SMS local reply capability without minimum usage quotas.
