On February 12th, 2020, SMSFactor celebrated its 10th birthday. We thought it was the perfect occasion to comeback on the key moments of our first decade, but also to thank you for trusting us daily with your business texts sendings. We would not be here without you!


10 years of sending business texts


10 years ago, Sebastien Magliolo created SMSFactor in his attic: a story worthy of American start-ups!


After several months of work, SMSFactor launched the first version of its platform, centred on the sending of marketing sms and alerts sms. It signs its first clients and officially send its first sms campaigns.


One year after the launch of its platform, SMSFactor is already sending several millions business texts for its clients.


SMSFactor joins the CEEI (Startups Accelerator) based in Nice. The start-up benefits from a professional support and sets its first premises in the local incubator.


For the first time since its creation, SMSFactor recruits its first employees.

The same year, SMSFactor upgrades its offer with a new version of its text messaging platform for businesses: quicker, more intuitive and that adapts to the progressive needs of its clients. SMSFactor also updates its website and its blog.

The next year, SMSFactor is a laureate of the Technology Fast 500 EMEA of Deloitte, being ranked among the compagnies with the best growth in Europe, Middle-East and Africa.

As a fast-growing company, SMSFactor starts to sponsor local clubs, among which les Aigles de Nice Hockey Club and l’AS Monaco féminine. We still accompany them today!

SMSFactor receives the French Tech Innovation Awards, delivered by Christian Estrosi, mayor of the city of Nice.

For the third year in a row, SMSFactor launches a new service, following several clients demands: reminders by SMS.


For the second time, SMSFactor moves: after benefit from the professional support of the CEEI for several years, SMSFactor stands on its own two feet and moves to Saint-Laurent-du-Var.

This year, the company also integrates the Trust in Enterprise Messaging (TEM), program of the Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF), which operates to create an ethic and qualitative SMS market.

SMSFactor also beats its record of text messaging in a day, with over one million SMS.
