Secure Messaging Company’s Success Fueled by Market Acceleration and Recognized Leadership Position; Company Added More Than 1,500 facilities in First 6 Months of 2013; New Customers Include Hoag Health Network, Adventist Health and Doylestown Hospital.

SANTA MONICA, CALIF. (August 22, 2013) – TigerText, the leader in secure, real-time messaging for the enterprise, today announced record growth and significant company expansion in the first half of 2013. With more than 2.5 million downloads, TigerText is establishing itself as the leader in real-time secure messaging tailored for enterprises and healthcare.
The company’s strong growth is due in part to its three year head start in developing the TigerText app, the industry’s most scalable platform enabling TigerText to service the robust communication and compliancy needs of enterprise and healthcare customers. Since the beginning of 2013, the company has added more than 250 new facilities on average each month.
“The first half of 2013 has not only marked an acceleration point for TigerText in terms of customer and revenue growth, but has also been pivotal in positioning Tiger Text as the leader in secure, real-time enterprise messaging,” said Brad Brooks, Tiger Text co-founder and CEO. “We’re currently providing messaging services for more than 2,000 facilities including some of the largest healthcare organizations in the nation. Due to our success in the first half of the year, we are doubling down on our investment into the business as this is a unique opportunity to radically improve healthcare delivery through faster response times and better coordination, all while reducing costs.”
TigerText’s early investment in the healthcare market has paid off with a large number of prominent healthcare organizations adopting the technology in 2013, including Hoag Health Network, Adventist Health, and Doylestown Hospital. Other recent wins include Danbury Hospital, Health Alliance and Scottsdale Health Partners.
“We quickly recognized the need for a compliant messaging solution that would simplify our communication process and reduce response times,” said Martin Fee, M.D., Chief Medical Information Officer for Hoag. “TigerText is just the solution we needed to help us coordinate care in a seamless, effective manner and improve overall workflow, ultimately helping to enhance our patients’ safety and satisfaction.”
TigerText’s momentum, by the numbers:
• Percentage growth of paid users in past 7 months: 400+%
• Number of facilities that use TigerText: 2,000+
• Number of messages sent across the TigerText platform per month: More than 100 million (Growing 10% month over month)
• Growth of TigerText team in the year’s first half: Nearly doubled
For the remainder of 2013, TigerText will continue to expand and innovate in the real-time, enterprise messaging space, one of the fastest growing sectors in the 200 billion mobile messaging industry as reported by industry analysis firm Market Research. The company recently brought on several new team members in Engineering, Marketing and Product and Account Management to help meet the growing demands and needs of clients, and is looking to expand its offices in the next few months.
