SAN DIEGO -- Single Touch Systems (OTC: SITO, today unveiled its extremely popular Mobile Dialing Code (MDC) platform--along with an impressive list of major brands, retailers and wireless carriers that are already using the system.

MDCs are short, branded phone numbers that function as a front door for consumers to step into the compelling world of m-commerce. The wildly popular #MTV, #BET, #TAXI and #WMT are all powered by Single Touch and have proven that consumers will flock to an easy and functional method to engage in mobile retail.

Operators, brands and retailers have fallen in love with the ability to reliably extend branded environments to customers wherever they are and whenever they want it."
