ABC Financial and Textmunication to Launch RCS in 2019

ABC Financial and its preferred mobile texting partner, Textmunication, are working together to develop and introduce Rich Communication Services (RCS) to the health and fitness market in early 2019. RCS is seen as a successor to SMS and supports rich media content, hot buttons, video and other features in a single text.

Textmunication recently added Thomas DiBenedetto and Joseph Griffin as investors and advisors for business strategy and investment execution. Both bring valuable business and investment experience to help scale the Textmunication mobile marketing platform named “Smart Automated Messaging”. Textmunication was recently recognized by CIOReview as a “Top 20 Digital Marketing Solution Provider” of 2018 due to its scalable software platform and upcoming RCS solution.

DiBenedetto has over 40 years’ experience in the investment business; he is the founder and principal stockholder of two investment firms.  In addition, DiBenedetto is a partner in the Fenway Sports Group LLC (FSG), the parent company of the Boston Red Sox and Liverpool Football Club, a Premier League Soccer team.

Griffin, a retired Wall Street executive, spent his career with two firms: Century Capital Associates, a flexible equity-oriented investment advisor with over $2 billion in assets and Renaissance Technologies Corporation, a money management firm with over $5 billion in assets.
