LOS ANGELES, Calif., October 22nd, 2007 – Impact Mobile, a North AmericanLeader in mobile marketing, today announced the launch of its proprietary, and eagerly anticipated mobile ticketing product, JumpTXT ACCESS. JumpTXT ACCESS is a mobile ticket and coupon delivery solution that creates unique mobile-friendly barcodes and delivers them to any wireless device or cell phone for redemption at live events or retail points-of-sale.
