Introduction is a knowledge exchange service. Providers share information with Consumers through the medium of text messages up to 160 characters in length over the mobile networks using the MSISDN +6421674979 worldwide.

Consumers request and receive information on their mobile using text keywords sent to Msgwrx and linked to the Provider's information, which may be provided free to all or at a small charge to subscribers.
