iPiPi.com Goes Corporate
Many of you asked us to make management of large corporate accounts easier. We are happy to announce that the first phase of this service upgrade is completed. With a corporate account, administrators can manage all users associated with a company. They can also take advantage of volume price discounts and define and modify SMS forwarding rules for all corporate accounts. We are working on more exciting functions. If you have special requirements or suggestions please let us know.
As of October 1 we will expand our reach and be able to send SMS to wireless subscribers in China, France, Italy and Spain. We are also expanding our reach to Australia's Optus network and to networks in Holland.
iPiPi.com Web Site Redesign
Over the last three years the number of our subscribers grew substantially. We also noticed that our users come from all countries and continents and some may have difficulties using our service as they do not speak English.
|Based on your suggestions we are updating iPiPi.com with streamlined registration and SMS sending processes. We are also adding new help screens and replacing text with illustrations. Finally, we are adding a few new faces to our application. Please welcome Mona and Nick, your iPiPi helpers.

On September 8th, 2003 we reached a major milestone for our company. We added 50,000th customer of www.ipipi.com. I hereby want to thank all of you for being our users and for your invaluable suggestions.
A Special Thank you to BC Firefighters
This summer our province of British Columbia, Canada has been hit with an exceptionally dry summer. This caused our forests to be susceptible to fire. Blazes that followed as a result engulfed many houses and caused even more people to leave their homes. On behalf of our team I wanted to express our sympathies to everyone affected by the fire. I also wanted to thank the firefighters for their bravery and hard work without which the situation would have been much worse.
I never thought I would say this but let there be rain!
