Story

The

Story

GMS was founded in 2006
as a P2P messaging hub for the CIS region.

GMS was founded in 2006 as a P2P messaging hub for the CIS region.

Soon, the company realised that its sprawling network of direct connections with mobile operators in the CIS was a perfect stepping stone for transforming GMS into the region’s first and most successful A2P messaging hub. GMS’ growing expertise led it to pioneer domestic and international traffic segregation in this immense market.

After eight years of ample growth in the CIS, GMS was ready for the next big step. In 2014, it refocused its attention towards the global market, relocating its HQ to Switzerland and giving a new boost to its expansion.

Paving the road to success, GMS set up many new direct connections with MNOs and collaborations with some of the world’s largest tech enterprises. Expanding its CPaaS offering, GMS started an official partnership with Rakuten Viber in 2015, and continues to help enterprises build meaningful interactions with their clients, further developing its communication solutions.

As the preferred global partner of over 900 mobile operators and over 400 enterprises worldwide, GMS continues to grow its client base, pursue product innovations, and expand its extensive network of connections while ensuring safe and transparent traffic routing.
