JAJAH powering voice, SMS for online dating sites


Online dating sites Match.com and eHarmony announced they are using JAJAH's IP telephony platform to enable users to make calls, send SMS messages and leave voice mail for other users, according to the companies. JAJAH is rushing to the altar for the opportunity by launching JAJAH's Platform for Dating, which the company will market to other online dating services.

JAJAH CEO Trevor Healy said in a statement that JAJAH's focus on reliability and security is making it easier for people to find love online, which is now my early favorite for corporate overstatement of the year. But, despite Healy's hyperbole, the market for Internet dating communications could be a lucrative one for JAJAH, since members likely will feel more comfortable contacting each other via individual JAJAH numbers, rather than giving out home or cell phone numbers to strangers met online.
