Tokiva - The Most Popular IM Buddy on MSN, Yahoo, and GTalk, Connects
Text Based IM Systems With Voice Based Phone Networks
TORONTO and BEIJING, March 10 /CNW/ -- Today Tokiva announced the world's
first IM-To-Call service on its open mobile communications platform. Tokiva
IM-To-Call service is available immediately on leading instant messaging
systems, including MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AOL Messenger, and GTalk.
Since beta launching the IM-To-Call service in January 2008, Tokiva is
becoming the most popular IM buddy in the world, with tens of thousands users
taking advantage of IM Tokiva on a daily basis.
Without downloading any software, registered users receive an invitation
to add Tokiva to their IM buddy lists, and simply IM Tokiva to call. Tokiva
calls back to the user's land line or mobile phone, and immediately connects
the user to the desired number. Using Tokiva can save up to 90% of normal call
costs, because the calls are carried by Tokiva's global VoIP network that has
a footprint in over 185 countries.
"Tokiva users tend to be on IM systems all the time. Tokiva IM-To-Call
service is a natural extension to what the IM users are already doing --
communicating in real time with their friends worldwide," commented Tong Li,
Founder and CEO of Tokiva Inc. "Tokiva is connecting text based IM systems
with voice based phone networks in a simple yet powerful way."
Tokiva has filed a patent on the enabling technology platform that
currently supports MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AOL Messenger, and GTalk.
According to comScore Media, there are 90 million instant messaging users on
IM systems in the United States alone. By Q2 2008, Tokiva will also support QQ
Messenger, the most popular IM systems in China with 520 million users.
