Augnet is a London-based technology start-up set to revolutionise the SMS and messaging space. Founded in April 2018, Augnet is the brainchild of CEO, ex-Skype / Microsoft Senior Manager and Angel investor Daniel Gill, who developed a unique disruptive technology to address the global problem of lack of governability and traceability in SMS messaging.
Augnet’s transformative solution provides SMS suppliers with a strong alternative to the current outdated market provision. Business development and strategy expert Augnet COO Jekaterina Orlova, works closely alongside Daniel Gill and experienced CTO Andy Steward. Together they have gained attention from industry heavyweights and investors as a “technology dream team” that is set to have a significant impact on the SMS and messaging space.
Run out of Cass Launch Lab, Augnet tops the chart of start-ups at the Lab for a level of funding, having acquired 16 industry expert investors for its initial seed round, including lead investor Triple Point, and having been selected in a highly competitive process for European Innovation Council funding. Augnet is now giving back to its community by mentoring other start-ups.
Currently, SMS delivery cannot be tracked, leading to a lack of compliance standards and governance. This opens up the industry to possible abuse and difficulty in setting KPIs.
Augnet’s technology is the first with the capability to track 100% of SMS message delivery. It brings the ability to instigate compliance, governance and quality standards.
"Augnet is on a mission to bring trust, compliance, transparency and safety to the SMS and messaging space."
Jekaterina Orlova, COO of Augnet
