Soprano Design, a global leader in cloud-based enterprise messaging solutions and Telstra, Australia's largest telecommunications company, have strengthened their relationship by launching Version 3.0 of the highly successful Telstra Integrated Messaging product.
TIM 3.0 has been designed to meet the rapidly changing demands of Australia’s digitally enabled workplace making it easier for customers to access and deploy intelligent, large scale enterprise messaging across multiple platforms from SMS to IP and email, improving workplace productivity and business efficiency.
According to Soprano, the future is most definitely now as Australian businesses and government departments look for trusted partners and intelligent solutions that can seamlessly route interactive messages to the best available communication channel. This growth in demand, for easy to use enterprise messaging solutions, is delivered to Telstra customers through the new TIM 3.0 enhancement, providing a seamless user experience across multiple devices and touchpoints.
TIM 3.0 delivers a host of other added benefits for the telco’s business, healthcare, retail, transport, hospitality and government customers from voice API enhancements through to Microsoft Dynamics plug-ins and Rapid Alert, a powerful incident management tool and API for rapid response. Robin Ng, Soprano Senior Vice President for APAC, says the enhanced, integrated and secure TIM 3.0 solution gives Telstra’s customers greater access to integrated messaging capabilities including enhancements to email, social media, voice and location-based encrypted IP messaging, delivered alongside the robust SMS channel with a new omni-channel option.
“We know today’s digitally savvy customers are looking for simple to use, smart technology that gives them the ability to communicate with ease across multiple communication platforms, securely and from anywhere. TIM 3.0 gives Telstra’s business and government customers access to a variety of enterprise messaging channels powered by intuitive and interactive tools. It goes beyond plain text and allow users to interact with systems through simple, highly engaging and interactive features such as inbound responses, buttons, multimedia, maps, URLs and additional user-interface enhancements.
Mr. Ng says TIM 3.0 offers a seamless experience across multiple devices and touchpoints through to RapidAlert for incident management and secure IP messaging. “It has the benefit of instant feedback from customers on any device in any location and engaging with them in real-time. TIM 3.0 optimises message delivery with personalised and unified communication to enhance the customer experience. It supports multiple addresses for contacts and enhances the customer experience with personalised interactions which also enables greater individual customer insights, tracking and reporting.”
Soprano Chairman, Richard Favero says TIM 3.0 will help keep businesses competitive. “Soprano is committed to ensuring Australia’s enterprise and government organisations have access to the latest cloud-based messaging platforms.

Increasing mandates around the security of personal data have made encryption for every business. Australian businesses are leading the world in the use of encryption to protect backups, payment-related data, and laptops – and yet they still have a long way to go before encryption is both ubiquitous and manageable.
