Bill Dudley, US SMS Pioneer, talks about his career, the development of SMS, Sinch and where the Industry is going today

May 31, 2021

We’re delighted to have Bill Dudley, evangelist at Sinch, on the Podcast this week.  Bill is a pioneer and evangelist of the SMS Industry in North America and he talks about his Mobile career back to his early experiments with Mobile Data.

Bill and I have both lived in two great US States that we share a fondness for.

Bill was instrumental in pushing for SMS Interconnect in North America in the early days of his career– something that we take for granted now.  Having joined Inphomatch, who were early interconnect pioneers, he’s still with the company after many corporate iterations and the company is now part of Sinch – who are a major player in CPaaS and Omni Channel marketing.

Bill talks about the mistakes that RCS made in the past but believes that with Google behind it that it has a great future. Bill explains the value proposition that Sinch brings to Enterprises and how SMS still has an important part to play.

Finally Bill reveals his very interesting hobby and he plays out with a piece of music that shows he hasn’t strayed too far from his Texas roots.
