AwayPhone acquires US-based GlobalFon to extend global reach
Headquartered in Washington, it has offices in Australia, Brazil and Japan. The company has around 20 core distributor partners and 40,000 customers, including Coca Cola, Deloitte, Microsoft and Shell.
Sherry Madera, CEO of AwayPhone, comments: "This business deal is a strategic 'fit' for both companies - and therefore good news all round. GlobalFon has an impressive customer base and well-developed distribution channel which complements AwayPhone's service, growing partner network and market-leading technology. The move is also an appropriate culmination of our first year of trading during which we have continually pushed the boundaries to develop our offering and explore tactics to ensure it is widely available on a global basis."
