Why is the Whispir share price charging higher?
Investors have been bidding the Whispir share price higher this morning after it announced a multi-year contract with global telecommunications leader Singtel.

The company notes that its solution enhances App Push, Email, Voice, WhatsApp and Rich Message capability to enable more impactful and personalised communication for Singtel across all stakeholders, at scale.
Whispir’s CEO, Jeromy Wells, commented: “Singtel is a globally recognised brand that has selected Whispir to unlock more value from its digital services. We believe this signals a step-change in the way businesses in the region are looking to use the Whispir platform to transform their businesses and communicate more effectively with their stakeholders.”
