Skinkers - Communications you can't miss The original Skinkers communication platform was first released in 2002. Over the last 4 years significant enhancements have been made and a number of releases issued. As the technology has been deployed we found a common need emerging: the ability to deliver ShouldKnow information through an “unmissable” communication channel, directly to the screens of the user.

Skinkers is a privately funded technology company headquartered in London with offices in Milan, New York and Sydney. Our founders have been involved with the web since 1993 when email and online communication were in their infancy. The management team includes a mixture of serial entrepreneurs and seasoned enterprise software professionals. We believe this mix of talent and experience ensures we can not only think creatively and build innovative technology, but also have the business maturity needed to deliver enterprise software to the world’s largest corporations. Since we founded in 2001 our expansion has been rapid. Many of the world’s leading brands use Skinkers technology.

Skinkers universal push platform is the world’s first multi channel message and content delivery technology. Our Live Notification Platform delivers information directly to the screen of the most appropriate digital device, e.g. a computer desktop or BlackBerry. We enable organisations to deliver priority notifications and distribute heavy content through a controlled, highly versatile and secure universal communication platform.

Employees, customers and business partners receive the information they ShouldKnow, at the right time, through the right channel, to the right device.

In June 2006 Skinkers agreed an ‘Equity for Technology’ deal with Microsoft. As joint development partners we are co-developing technology to enhance our current products and create new solutions for real-time event notification and high bandwidth content delivery. Microsoft plans to incorporate part of the final technology into its product line.
