How UK consumers are ready for a richer messaging experience : A survey carried out on behalf of Acision by Vanson Bourne

Hi Will,


As we approach the bank holiday weekend, I wanted to send you an insightful infographic from the global leader in mobile messaging, Acision, uncovering how UK consumers are ready for a richer messaging experience. The full infographic can be found below and is also hosted online here.


The infographic is based on a survey carried out on behalf of Acision by Vanson Bourne that examined the trends, habits and views of 1000 Smartphone users in the UK. The stats the survey produced offer insight into UK mobile messaging trends, including:

·         80% of smartphone users in the UK currently use OTT services

·         76% of these smartphone users currently admit to using multiple messaging services to contact friends, families and colleagues

·         78% would be keen to try a rich messaging service such as the GSMA’s rich communications Service (RCS) Joyn

An App that can actually save lives / Giant iTab great result from our Giant iTab at the recent Rapid Response Systems and Medical Emergancy Conference in London - where The Learning Clinic used one of Touch2View's hire fleet of 55" giant interactive tablets.

This was hired to show off their VitalPAC App which is now being used in NHS and private Hospitals throughout the UK and has been shown to reduce cardiac arrest calls and actually save patient lives!

"Thanks again for your help over the last two days. The iTab worked really well, was truly eye-catching and attracted lots of attention"
