The Vizru-Retarus partnership will deliver the world’s first Intelligent Business Messaging for Enterprises. The combined solution will bring together the individual strengths of each company, where secure messaging meets innovative business automation.
As a global provider of cloud based solutions, Retarus provides enterprise communication services via Fax, SMS, and E-Mail.

Vizru offers a core platform for empowering citizen developers to craft ‘Smart Apps’ by assembling spreadsheet, forms, or dashboard-based capabilities into workflows that deliver collaborative, enterprise-ready applications.
What makes this partnership special is how it combines the unique values of each company. Vizru brings its unique never seen before session management, a frequently missing piece of the puzzle for any hybrid cloud-based application. Session management is a very effective way to realize omni-channel use cases. It allows you to pause an activity or a transaction that is initiated in a channel and complete the same transaction on a different channel such as SMS.
Retarus provides the secure messaging backbone used for strengthening and delivering enterprise communication in a variety of modalities. Together, these capabilities are key to delivering features like omni-channel, SMS-based, customer experiences.
Vizru’s session management capability is able to string together otherwise separate interactions into a single, customer-focused workflow, even in hybrid cloud environments,” said Jason Bloomberg, president of Digital Transformation industry analyst firm Intellyx. “Such session management is quite difficult and critical for implementing secure digital transactions, especially for omnichannel applications.
“We are confident that this partnership will power the future of business automation. The ability to build apps that communicate with anyone and everyone in real-time, via a variety of Messaging channels and Authentication API
“Working with Enterprise leaders requires innovation to be at the heart of business strategy. Our partnership with Vizru not only fosters innovation, but strengthens our ability to deliver unique business processes to our clients and ensures robust integrated messaging”, said Steve MacDiarmid, retarus Inc.’s President and CEO. “Retarus’ ongoing commitment is to deliver unique, next-generation business products by uniting with industry’s thought leaders. This partnership is a step forward towards that commitment as well as to opening untapped markets”.

The global information logistics provider with 14 branches on four continents always plays an important role where large amounts of data need to be transmitted securely and reliably –– irrespective of which communication channels, interfaces, applications and devices are required.
