Company description

The Octopi Network is a universal and secure messaging platform.

1. Send & Receive Messages Across Any Platform

Whether messaging with an individual or your entire staff or client base, it can be a headache sorting out all the compatibility issues with people’s various devices, messaging apps, and geographic locations.

Octopi Network changes all that, allowing you to bypass all compatibility issues to reach anyone, on any phone, anywhere in the world!


2. Works on all Devices

All mobile devices

This includes feature phones, which still comprise 50% of all cellular devices in the U.S. and 80% of them globally. Message recipients can receive and reply to your messages, even if they don’t have smartphones.

 

Works globallyIt’s as easy to send a message across the world as it is to send it across the street. There are no special international messaging protocols.

Business model

The Octopi Network was developed by Red Oxygen, a global leader in enterprise text messaging software applications and services- delivering over 100 million messages.  Our foothold in the industry positioned us to learn from Fortune 100 companies what communications services they need.  We are players in the global messaging market valued at $202B and growing to $310B by 2016. 

Universal secure messaging will be sold using a software as a service business model.  Initial sales from existing Red Oxygen clients base (over 300,000 users).

3. Integration.  Messages can be  easily initiated from a smartphone or computer (including Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes and CRMs).

4. API.  Secure chat capabilities will be available to integrate into a company's existing app.
