HTK Limited is a software-as-a-service company that provides mobile phone messaging and IVR services. HTK Limited is not to be confused with the HTK Hidden Markov model speech recognition toolkit, though the company does produce telephone services using speech recognition.

Founded in 1996, HTK is headquartered in Ipswich, Suffolk, UK.

HTK has received media coverage for its mass notification services,[1] and has been well publicised in the East of England for providing the "Police Direct" messaging service to Suffolk[2][3] and Norfolk[4] Constabularies.

In 2010 the HTK Horizon SaaS platform was selected[5] by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) for their Floodline Warnings Direct service.
