Meet us in Stockholm!

This week I had such a nice meeting with one of our customers from Denmark. He was in Stockholm for a few days, and as our office is right by the Central Station it was easy for us to meet.

We had this really nice grilled sandwich and talked about everything, our companies, how we work, how they are using our services today and how we can go on and expand the cooperation.

We had such a good time, something I really appreciated. It’s so rare to meet in person nowadays.tt_globe_logo_200px

I really hope that YOU too will give us a call when you are passing by, even for a quick coffee. Welcome!

Life hack – anti fraud!

Hi!

Last week I attended the the Swedish e-legitimation board’s event “#elegdagen”. It was a day full of information from the chairman of the board, the Swedish Civil Minister as well as the head of the Police Anti Fraud division.

From a personal point of view it was a aha-experience when the police talked about the fraud situation in Sweden. And what I really would like to share is these two images (in Swedish no less);

What can an e-legitimation do to make fraud more difficult;
eleg_minska_risken
To make the image more informational I’ll translate it here;
– use as a standard to login to official websites
– when creating a new profile at e-commerce sites
– for certain types of large purchases
– to confirm that a credit information request is correct

Tips to minimize the risk to be id-hacked
tips_minska_risk
– if you get a mail offer that is “to good to be true” it is. Search for information.
– mail from unknown recipients – do not read or open attachments.
– use a digital mailbox if there is such a service to receive mail from authorities, one that use an e-legitimation to login
– in Sweden the Tax Agency provides an address change service that is protected by e-legitimation
– Use mobile e-legitimation with caution, do not let someone install it for you
– protect your snail mail by utilizing mailboxes with locks

SMS and Popcorn!

Hi,

This year we have at least two jubilars to celebrate, one international and one kind of local.

The international is that SMS celebrates 25 years! The protocol for sending SMS came to sms_green_100pxlife during the eighties but nothing really happened until december 1992 when the first SMS was sent, from a computer no less, exactly what we help our customers to do to this day – and more.

According to a number of sites, the total number of SMS sent in June 2014 was about 560 billions…compare that to one SMS in 1992!

What about popcorn?popcorn
Well in Sweden popcorn, or rather ‘movie popcorn’, celebrates 30 years 2017. And we go through about 16 million liters of popcorn every year, and that is only at the movies.

 

For more information about our SMS services please go to http://www.tellustalk.com or send us an email to sales@tellustalk.com.

Have a wonderful day and weekend, and don’t forget to Text and eat Popcorn!

We have three services that can help you solve that.

  • Login via BankID if you need to know who received and read the message.
    For now only for the Swedish market.
  • Or Signature using BankID for the more critical messages that might be regarding critical work orders and that needs to be done correctly and in a timely fashion.
    For now only for the Swedish market.

What will 2017 bring?

Hiya!

The last post was a recap on 2016 so let´s now look at the possibilities of 2017.

First, it will be very fun to get to know our new colleague that will be starting at the beginning of February, it will be great to have another girl on the crew! More introduction will follow.

We will also continue to set up solutions for electronic signatures from countries outside Sweden. They will be avaliable in our Electronic Signing and Secure Messages services.

A project to tune the web interface looks and usability is also on tracks. We are happy to receive any ideas and requests from our users, send an email to sales@tellustalk.com if you want to make a contribution!

I´m sure there are more fun stuff to come along the way.

The rest of the world then, according to Wired there´s a lot going on in 2017.
Among other things, they think that the tellusearthIoT (Internet of Things) will die. At least in the form of today. The cause is the last two years of malware attacks and problems. The need for and the great possibilities with secure and stable solutions that among others will save lives, will hopefully enable the IoT to live on, in one way or the other.

We´ll see what happens, now there´s a long weekend holiday coming up here in Sweden at least.

Be excellent to each other!

2016 Recap

Well, 2016 is almost over and a brand new 2017 is waiting ahead.
So, what really happened in 2016?

 

swish

In January Swish launched the Swish E-commerce service and TellusTalk was one of the first to offer a simple connection using our service Payment Request.
Unfortunately Swish had capacity issues and had to close the service for re design in the beginning of the summer. It looks like there will be a relaunch during January 2017. As soon as we have confirmed the service to be stable, Swish E-commerce will be avaliable in the TellusTalk Payment Request service.

In June we launched our service Electronic Signing, this gave our customers the possibility to use email and SMS to send messages and documents that could be signed electronically by the recipient using BankID.
This is a digital signature with the same probative value as a physical signature. The difference is that it is much quicker and easier to use. This service came about in wake of the Secure Messages service, launched in 2015, that also uses BankID. It´s really great that so many embrached this service and started to send their agreements using this clever solution!

text_to_voice_small

In November the Text-to-Speech service got more functionality, supporting 18 languages and the possibility to let the recipient reply to questions using the keypad. You can let the destination determine the language for the reading of the message, or you can let our system automatically detect the language of your text.
A very useful service as it can both be used to send texts to landlines and also raise attention for a normal text messages sent at the same time.

In December we launched our mobile adapted interface Mbox!
It looks and works like your normal SMS app, but it´s really a web page so you won´t need to install anything. Send your messages quick and easy and receive the replies at the same place. If you save it on your home screen, it will look like an app there too.

coding_all_elements_liten
In the background our technicians have been working hard with changes and improvements that mostly is not visible to us, but that has given us a quicker and more reliable platform. An important job that doesn´t always get the credit it deserves, so I would like to send them an extra Thank You for their good work this year!

Of course, some things have happened outside TellusTalk too this year.. Wired has made a video recapping this years gadgets:

With this I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year!tellusearth
