Pareteum Expands Contract with Leading Global Tourism Retailer as it Enters New Markets with Additional $1.5 Million Contract
NEW YORK, NY – PRNewswire – March 23, 2018 – Pareteum Corporation (NYSE American: TEUM), (“Pareteum” or the “Company”), the rapidly growing Cloud Communications Platform company, announced today that an established Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) who, in September 2017, selected Pareteum’s Global Mobility Cloud Platform and connectivity to provide service for their retail customers’ mobile phones, phone cards, and internet service, purchased through hundreds of internet kiosks in airports, railway stations and shopping malls around the world, has added $1.5 Million to their contract with Pareteum.
The customer, who has been selling services to hundreds of thousands of travelers per year for the last 20 years throughout the USA, Europe, and South America, is now enabled by Pareteum to truly take control of its own customers’ experience, expand its reach, focus on customer acquisition, and launch new distribution centers. Through any one connection point, the tourism retailer can now expand its customers’ connectivity worldwide, enabling its customers to continue to subscribe and use their travel phone globally long after their initial trip has concluded. As they enter these additional countries and markets the platform will now immediately begin servicing these additional customers.
“We are very pleased to have been chosen to work with this established veteran of the mobile consumer retail business with a presence in transportation hubs around the world where many subscribers originate,” said Vic Bozzo, CEO. “When fully ramped, we expect this new customer to be servicing hundreds of thousands of recurring subscribers a month, representing $1,500,000 in addition to the previously announced revenue for our growing backlog over the 5-year duration of the contract.”
Hal Turner, Executive Chairman and Principal Executive Officer of Pareteum, commented, “The first critical decision comes with customers executing the agreement and making their buying decision. Customers buying “more”, because we have delivered on the “promises made”, and, they have experienced the value creation, is the biggest evidence of a successful customer engagement. We expect many more of these success stories to be shared throughout the coming months as we increase our speed to market, introduce new technologies and capture new business. We will continually expand our services roadmap and the services offered to meet customer needs. Enhanced quality of those offerings and attracting new customers to Pareteum are the by-product of a great customer engagement and their feedback, all delivered via our Global Cloud Services Platform.”
