Global Warning System (GWS) announces a partnership agreement with the US-based PicCell Wireless group. GWS’ Safeture Pro service concept will be re-branded Safey, customized for the study abroad market and added to the PicCell Wireless global product portfolio. Sister company Safey will be dedicated to offering the re-branded Safeture services using PicCell market and sales channels. The agreement is based on a revenue share business model.
The GWS Safeture service concept is a personal security service when traveling, which provides critical information about disasters and other threats, directly in the traveler’s smartphone through an app that is easily downloaded. PicCell Wireless is focusing on making it easy and affordable for anyone to have and use a wireless device while they are abroad. PicCell Wireless partners with large networks to provide convenient and competitive wireless products and services, and addresses the challenge of providing flexible, short-term contracts for impermanent residents, offering many of the benefits of local wireless services. By adding Safey, the re-branded Safeture Pro service, to the PicCell Wireless portfolio, they can strengthen the offering and add customer value. Brandon Ferrante, CEO at PicCell Wireless, comments on the cooperation:
“Safey is a perfect add-on service for study abroad students or business travelers. They are per definition very mobile, often visiting many countries. This will give them a better and safer travel experience abroad, and that is definitely fitting our mission.”
Andreas Rodman, CEO of GWS, describes the benefits from GWS point of view:
“We think this is a very exciting cooperation. The customers of PicCell Wireless will definitely experience very high value and benefits when using our service. Our services are a perfect match and we are looking forward to developing the partnership, serving customers all over the world through the PicCell Wireless sales channels.”
