Text Messaging, A Medium Changing IHRSA

A look back at some of the highlights of our team’s journey at IHRSA and what a direct communication channel such as text message marketing means to the health, fitness and wellness industry.

PLEASANT HILL, CA, April, 16 2018 — Textmunication Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK: TXHD), about a month ago we preparing ourselves for one of the most notorious trade shows in North America to start in San Diego–IHRSA, the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association. IHRSA has created a platform for businesses of all scales in the health and fitness to have a place to meet, greet and connect with one another, furthering the communal ties and relationships of software and hardware contributors. 

 

What is IHRSA?

IHRSA is a unique trade association dedicated to bringing huge awareness to consumer trends, ideas, best practices, the expanding interest of gym owners, all while promoting the most important ideal, which is the vitality. It is an organization that has taken on such immense responsibility but has done so holistically and is growing so much every year.

 

Why was Textmunication there?

Our team went out to IHRSA this year to meet with some of the great people behind the relationships we have made. To connect with them a little further and learn more about their products, services and how text messaging has helped our partners impact their business models. Some of our Partners include:

1. ABC Financial

ABC has been in business since 1981 and currently works with over 7,000 health clubs making them the nations leading software and payment processing provider for the health and fitness.

2. Jonas Fitness

Jonas software was created from the acquisition of software, billing services and other assets of Club Solutions by Fiserv, Inc. and has over 25,000 customers in more than 15 countries worldwide.

These are both partners who have yielded positive results from integrating or using text messaging for member engagement. Our partners have software and payment processing running all of their clients billing needs and also have a text messaging provider improving the communication that is needed in those areas, one text at a time.

The essence of it all was that IHRSA brought us all together, which is exactly why we wanted to attend! Here are some captures from our Marketing team who were there to document it all:

Textmunication Holding, Inc. 2017 Recap

PLEASANT HILL, CA / ACCESSWIRE / January 4, 2018 / (OTC: TXHD)

As I reflect on my past 9 years as CEO, I’m amazed by how much our company has changed over the years. In this letter, I would like to summarize some of the transformational events that have shaped our company and help thousands of businesses grow through our SMS mobile marketing solution.

In 2017, we executed bold measures bringing together the right people and the right assets to help transform Textmunication. Our innovative SMS solution instantly connects our valued clients to their members and prospects providing ROI, retention and loyalty.

Our entire team is committed to a journey we began more than three years ago. We recognized a need to fundamentally change our internal operations to target specific SMS verticals. By targeting the Health and Fitness market, we found a sector needing instant communication tools. Our SMS solution is now the leading Health and Fitness SMS solution for the more than 37,000 health clubs in the United States.

Our vision has always been centered on our clients: Be the best. Be more relevant. Be more efficient – and most importantly, be more client-solution focused with our SMS services.

Our management team is the best in the mobile space and together we developed the vision and strategy being carried out today. Our vision is delivering long-term shareholder value and incorporating a “best-in-class” service experience for our clients.

Textmunication has taken recent steps improving the future of our company:

  • Hired experienced developers and integrated a team of strong API developers
  • Significant capital investments improving our SMS platform, CRM, marketing and back-office infrastructure
  • Improved our financial and operational efficiency for short and long-term growth
  • Focused internally on our company culture and becoming a top employer in the Bay Area
  • Executed several partnerships in the Health and Fitness, Salon and Quick Service Restaurant verticals
  • Hired financial advisors to assist in raising capital
  • Developed strategic technology partnerships with leading companies and technologists

There is no doubt we’re a better company today because of these changes – and we will keep improving to reach revenue milestones and company goals.

Our competition is strong, but we are well positioned for future growth. We have several advantages – including an outstanding team, the most innovative SMS solution and “best-in-class” service roadmap. We developed a clear connectivity strategy enabling us to effectively manage our legacy business while capitalizing on future opportunities with our new SMS platform. Textmunication is geared for strong growth by establishing solid partnerships, developing an innovative SMS platform, creating robust API capabilities and architecting a strategic operational roadmap enabling long-term EBITDA, free cash-flow, improved earnings and increased market share.

We are investing in our technology, enhancing current and new partnerships, improving our customer service capabilities and ensuring Textmunication will be a significant and leading competitor in the SMS marketplace for years to come.

We are committed to maintaining financial discipline, enhancing our operational efficiency, executing our strategic plan and sustaining management accountability.

We will need to execute better than our competition. We need to remain humble and mindful of our client’s current and future needs. Our focus must be flexible with the ability to change based on new technology trends and our customer’s requests. We must continue staying two-steps ahead in the fast-growing SMS mobile marketing sector.

The importance of SMS in business environments will demand reliability and scalability. Our clients need and want SMS mobile marketing – so the need to deliver innovative and scalable solutions is critical. We are positioned to succeed and deliver with both technology and world-class service. Our partnerships with the leading Club Management Software (CMS) firms in the Health and Fitness and Salon sectors will assist with increasing market share.

Our new Smart Automated Messaging (SAM) software platform can compete with any SMS platform allowing Textmunication to plan aggressively for future growth and new alliances. Our SMS technology is robust and unique – and we consider it to be as significant milestone in Textmunication’s history. With our new SAM platform operational, we will focus on API development creating new partnerships and revenue. We will begin architecting GEN4 in mid-2018 allowing for the conversion of standard data into intelligent data. Our SMS aggregator has selected Textmunication to test its Rich Communication Service (RCS) in early 2018 allowing for higher definition images and video.

I’m grateful for our team and their unwavering commitment through this period of growth. They have always delivered with the customer as their #1 priority. On behalf of Textmunication Holdings and our leadership team, we thank them for their continued dedication to our company and our customers.

We also want to thank the businesses across the country who have chosen the Textmunication SMS services. We look forward being a leading provider of SMS services for years to come. Our business is not immune to the challenges of the market, but we’ll continue focusing on our strategic roadmap and use ingenuity to overcome challenges in the mobile space.

As we enter 2018 – our companies 9th anniversary – we proudly say we are humbled and privileged to serve our clients and shareholders. We look forward servicing our clients with a communication solution providing quick ROI and a way to stay engaged with members.

Today, we stand on a foundation that has never been more solid. A platform that is ready to hold the weight of the next generation of technology and services. Thank you for your confidence and continued support.

Respectfully,

Wais Asefi
CEO/Chairman

Textmunication Holdings, Inc. Provides Shareholder Update on Government Contracting

PLEASANT HILL, CA/October 19, 2017 – Textmunication Holdings, Inc. (TXHD.OB), a cloud-based mobile SMS marketing platform provider, issued an 8-K on October 9, 2017 detailing Aspire Consulting Group LLC’s (“Aspire”) confirmed Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) awards as a subcontractor.

Textmunication has a 49% stake in Aspire, a Maryland-based IT Services firm specializing in innovative IT solutions for federal and state governments. Aspire teams with IT Services leaders leveraging its core competencies in Business Process Reengineering, Health IT, Cloud Migration, Software Integration and Digital Engagement.

Aspire has three IDIQ wins with prime contractors in 2017:

  • Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
  • Social Security Administration Information Technology Support Services (ITSSC)
  •  The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) VECTOR

Indefinite delivery/Indefinite quantity contracts provide for an indefinite quantity of services for a fixed time. This type of multiple-award procurement vehicle helps streamline the contract process and speed service delivery. Teaming with influential Primes allows subcontractors to leverage the network and past performance of the Prime and win contracts. After an IDIQ is won, task orders are generated for the selected contractors to compete for, win and deliver. While this process can take time to implement following the IDIQ award, it provides long-term opportunities and major revenue potential. Aspire is building a varied contract portfolio consisting of IDIQ and program-based awards.

There are contracts not dependent on task orders, but instead program-based awards. These contracts offer immediate work for both the prime and subcontractor. While CMS, SSA and VECTOR are task order driven, Aspire has two proposals pending not dependent on task orders, but instead based on specific criteria outlined in the proposal. If these proposals are won, the work begins after the contracts are signed.

Several leading prime contractors have chosen Aspire for the following reasons:

  • Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) certification
  • Past performance credentials and expertise
  • Experienced leadership in IT Services
  • Network of specialized consultants
  • Connections to key federal and state agencies

Many contracts require a percentage of overall revenue assigned to SDVOSB firms. This number typically ranges from 2% – 8%. Aspire has teaming agreements for specific programs with leading System Integrators (SI) for opportunities either won or currently bidding. A teaming agreement doesn’t guarantee business, but offers opportunities with leading firms on mission-critical federal and state programs.

Building past performance is a critical step in becoming a prime contractor. Aspire is positioning itself to be a prime contractor for future opportunities by aligning itself on major programs with top integrators. The ability to team with industry leaders opens opportunities and provides key past performance metrics. Aspire has three bids pending for Q4 award notification in addition to working on IDIQ task order proposals.

Textmunication Holdings, Inc. Appoints former Philips Electronics C-Level Executive as Technical Advisor

PLEASANT HILL, Calif., April 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Textmunication Holdings, Inc. (TXHD), a cloud-based mobile SMS marketing platform provider, announced on March 13, 2017 in an 8k filing the addition of Rajeev Varshneya as Technical Advisor.

Mr. Varshneya’s roles at Philips included CEO of Philips Software Center, VP of Product Strategy, Engineering and Operations and SVP of Technology, Product Development and Strategy. He has also led numerous technology start-ups and is actively involved in government contracting with leading systems integrators.

CEO Wais Asefi stated: “Mr. Varshneya’s believes in the Textmunication technology blueprint and has explained, in-depth where he sees the mobile marketing sector evolving and how Textmunication will play a major role.”

Rajeev Varshneya, Technical Advisor to Textmunication Stated:

“Textmunication is at the heart of social interaction and modern means of business communication. The amount of digital communication we will do, in private and in business, is likely to exponentially grow based on text messaging – far surpassing any other mechanism (calls, emails etc.). This is a sweet spot that has incredible future business potential. Textmunication was a pioneer of text messaging campaigns before market acceptance. I’m pleased to see the evolution of Textmunication’s technology and vision for scaling mobile marketing to the masses.

The Textmunication SMS platform will undergo very rapid changes in the short and mid-term. It will become ubiquitous in the way it’s incorporated into existing corporate solutions for businesses as a white label option and, at the same time, organizations wanting to keep IT out of their areas of expertise will use subscription to the platform like never before. To achieve this, the Textmunication platform will move to a true multi-tenancy model in which businesses benefit from the existing domain knowledge Textmunication has access to and achieve a fast time to market and money. Others will benefit from the exceptionally intuitive user experience the next generation platform will achieve along with mobile device access and ‘anywhere, anytime access and communication’ paradigm.

Textmunication will also work with businesses to harness additional value from the data they have in the system for business optimization and business expansion. The platform is not just about text messaging, it is about business maximization by super-fast reach to the clients and engaging them in an enticing manner. Textmunication expects to be a “partner of choice” based on its technology roadmap and solution offering. Current and future partnerships will appreciate our new software platform bringing both new functionality and scalability.

I joined Textmunication because I believe in its vision for developing leading SMS technology in a rapidly growing sector. Textmunication is positioned to be the SMS leader through innovation and collaboration with its partners and vast network. Hiring top-notch architects and developers was a huge step for the company and will elevate Textmunication with a state-of-the-art software platform capable of serving thousands of clients and millions of end-users. I have been associated with companies similar to Textmunication’s growth path and truly believe this company is positioned to do great things.

I am excited about this journey.”

Aspire Consulting Group Executes on It’s Strategic Roadmap

PLEASANT HILL, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 17, 2017 / Textmunication Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK: TXHD), a cloud-based mobile SMS marketing platform provider, is minority-owner of Aspire Consulting Group LLC (“Aspire”). On January 5, 2016, Textmunication Holdings, Inc. (“Textmunication”) entered into a Share Exchange Agreement with Aspire Consulting Group, LLC (“Aspire”). Aspire is a verified Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).

Pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Agreement, Textmunication acquired 49% of all of the issued and outstanding membership units of Aspire. As a result of the Share Exchange Agreement, Textmunication became a minority owner of Aspire.

Aspire Consulting Group & SDVOSB:

Aspire is headquartered in the business hub of Washington, D.C. and provides IT consulting and solution-based services to commercial, state, and federal agencies. Aspire is connected to the government procurement community and has advisors who have served in state government cabinet positions and Fortune 500 companies. This network, along with the SDVOSB certification, positions Aspire as a sought after partner for government contracts.

There are less than 6,000 verified SDVOSB firms in the Unites States. Aspire is verified through the Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) program within the Veterans Affairs Department. Aspire’s acceptance into the “Veterans First Contracting Program” is critical. The purpose is to ensure legitimately owned and controlled VOSBs and SDVOSBs are able to compete for VA VOSB and SDVOSB set-aside contracts and are credited by VA’s large prime contractors for subcontract plan achievements.

Aspire Milestones:

Aspire was notified, on March 1, 2017, that it was awarded a significant 10-year government contract. Aspire is a strategic teammate on the CMS SPARC Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracting vehicle. The ceiling on the IDIQ is $25B and is shared with multiple companies. The Prime requested Aspire join the team based on its healthcare past performance and powerful SDVOSB certification. Aspire successfully performed on a 2016 Cloud and Big Data healthcare project gaining critical past performance marks. The Aspire leadership team has substantial Health IT (HIT) experience and is connected to the HIT network in D.C.

The remaining teammates come from Fortune 500 companies and well-known Federal System Integrators. Strategic teaming is key to winning the numerous task orders delivered under this long-term IDIQ vehicle. The Aspire SPARC team is divided into specialty areas and set-aside certifications. The SPARC agreement offers substantial revenue opportunity for Aspire. Once task orders within the IDIQ are won, announcements and revenue guidance will be made. Task order revenues vary in size, but most are substantial and are multi-year arrangements split amongst the teammates.

There are strict SDVOSB work share mandates required by the U.S. government. The Veterans Benefit Act of 2003 requires each government agency to set aside at least 3% of contracts for SDVOSBs. On the state level, the percentages vary, but in most cases are higher. Aspire is competing for state contracts where the SDVOSB requirement is a minimum 7% of total revenue.

The SPARC agreement also provides Aspire the necessary past performance credentials to compete long-term and be successful with future contracting proposals. Past performance is a critical benchmark, in addition to procurement set-aside certifications. Aspire’s SDVOSB certification is one of the most coveted in government contracting. The CMS SPARC contract is one of the largest IDIQs in government and carries substantial past performance metrics.

Aspire just submitted a proposal for the Veterans Affairs (VA) VECTOR SDVOSB contract. This is a $25B IDIQ centered on Management, Analysis, Training, Outreach, Supply Chain and Human Resource staffing. Aspire’s team on VECTOR now awaits the award of this contract. Two other contracts are pending. One is for system modernization of a state’s Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) infrastructure. The other as a subcontractor on a key federal agency.

Aspire has teaming agreements with Northrop Grumman – the #2 federal systems integrator, Tech Mahindra – one of the largest business transformation firms in the world and a Direct hiring agreement with Phase One Consulting Group on its Department of Transportation (DOT) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) programs. The SDVOSB certification helps these companies hit specific government goals as it relates to veteran-owned business credits.

Aspire – Textmunication Partnership:

Textmunication acquired a minority-stake in Aspire gaining government contracting access. The partnership also allows Aspire’s management team to open new SMS verticals in the government sector. Aspire is building-out a government contracting operation for the long-term.

The combination of government contracting access and new SMS opportunities makes the synergy strong. Textmunication will update the investment community once additional Aspire awards and task orders are won.
