WidePoint and Truphone Announce Partnership
Truphone’s global mobile network lets WidePoint give customers an international presence, manage roaming costs and improve productivity
McLean, Virginia, February 20, 2014 — WidePoint Corporation (NYSE Mkt: WYY), a leading provider of secure, cloud-based, enterprise-wide solutions and services in mobile communications management and identity management solutions, announced today joining with Truphone, the global mobile network without country borders, to offer WidePoint customers doing business internationally a service that makes them local in a growing number of countries. Truphone’s global mobile service gives businesses an international presence, which reduces roaming costs and improves their ability to conduct business abroad.
One of the ways that Truphone achieves this is by providing people with multiple international mobile numbers on a patented single SIM card, so international contacts can always reach them by making high quality local calls, at a local rate. Truphone’s approach also helps people talk, email, and download just as they do at home, within a group of countries called the Truphone Zone. Bundles of voice, text, and high speed data work across the Truphone Zone, which includes the US, UK, Australia, Hong Kong, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, and Spain.
Outside of the Zone, Truphone serves people in over 200 countries, with regional bundles that provide predictable costs and higher quality network performance in key business areas including Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. Truphone also offers a mobile recording solution for those customers needing seamless and secure recording and storage of their mobile communications for legal or regulatory compliance.
WidePoint provides telecommunications lifecycle management, cyber security, and information technology solutions, and its Managed Mobility Solutions (MMS) was recently included in Gartner Inc.’s first Magic Quadrant for Managed Mobility Services, which recognized WidePoint’s core Telecom Expense Management (TEM) services and proprietary mobile security software.
“WidePoint is a leader in delivering strategic wireless solutions to blue chip clients,” said Steve Yost, Director of Channel Sales at Truphone Americas. “We are excited to be a part of WidePoint’s extensive portfolio of mobility solutions, giving Truphone a much wider presence with enterprise customers.”
“Truphone was purpose-built to serve the needs of global businesses,” said John Atkinson, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of WidePoint. He continued, “Our clients are global businesses. By partnering with Truphone, our customers will find themselves with happier end users around the world, and improved bottom lines.”
WidePoint customers include many government agencies and commercial enterprises with mobile users that communicate internationally. The partnership allows WidePoint to provide these customers with Truphone services that will enable them to better manage international wireless costs and provide a competitive edge with local phone numbers that make it easier to do business globally. Truphone services are another way WidePoint can meet its commitment to its customers to increase efficiency and leverage technology, services, and other options that optimize their telecom services and increase the productivity of their mobile workforce.
