Better Tech for Kids: Pareteum Partners with Troomi Wireless to Unveil Kidsafe Smartphone Service
New KidSmart OS™ technology allows parents to curate the content on their children’s mobile devices, keeping predators out and empowerment in.
NEW YORK, NY – August 3, 2021 – Pareteum Corporation, a global cloud communications platform company and AT&T Partner Exchange® solution provider, announced today it has partnered with Troomi Wireless to launch a brand new, kid-friendly mobile service.
The new service features KidSmart OS™, which enables parents to seamlessly graduate their kids from one level of functionality to the next, based on needs and maturity. Parents can start by limiting a younger child to talk and SMS texting only, then easily add device functionality—including selections from Troomi’s curated suite of KidSmart™ Apps—as the child grows. As well, with broad safelisting capabilities, parents can designate what website domains are allowed and which people can call or text the child.
“Every parent in America with young children is struggling with the questions of how and when to introduce technology to their kids in a safe and responsible way,” said Dave Preece, co-founder and chairman of Troomi Wireless. “We partnered with Pareteum to offer parents a better option for giving devices to their children that shield them from pornography, predators, bullies, and screen addiction while empowering them with the benefits of connectivity. By filling the market void for a solution that is both safe and flexible, our new KidSmart OS™ helps kids live balanced lives and thrive in the pursuit of their dreams.”
The Pareteum Experience Cloud delivers connected services in over 200 countries and territories. It enables a variety of mobility, customer engagement, analytics, and intelligence services over the world’s largest unified global network. This includes global cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity, application-to-person (A2P) messaging, location intelligence, and a host of other value-added services. The platform’s SaaS model enables rapid time to market for service launches and expansions. It also allows brands to pay-as-they-scale.
“Troomi’s vision is an admirable one and we’re thrilled to play a part in making it a reality,” said Christine Braelow, Pareteum’s Global Vice President of Sales for Enterprise and Brands. “Our solutions give them both the flexibility to create bespoke, kid-friendly solutions and the scalability to intelligently grow their business. Our partnership with Troomi is an excellent example of how we’re able to extend the benefits of our platform not only to service providers, but to their subscribers as well.”
