Truphone, an international mobile phone operator, has successfully established its business sales base in the San Francisco Bay Area to serve the Americas. Truphone solutions offer economical calling, texting and data network access services for subscribers at home and abroad.
The base will control sales operations and is expected to support the company’s headquarters in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park and the Truphone Technology Center in Newark, N.J. The new office will be headed by John M. Badillo, vice president of business sales for the Americas.
Badillo said, “Truphone chose the San Francisco area because of its location on the Pacific Rim and its role as a hub for companies engaged in international telecommunications, internet applications and biotech, which can serve as both customers and sources of talent.”
With further expansion planned in the Americas, Truphone will hire more sales executives in the Bay area besides appointing managers for sales operations support and service delivery. Truphone is also actively hiring personnel for executive sales positions in other major U.S. cities to augment its sales force.
Truphone specializes in business-class voice, data and SMS service delivering them in over 200 countries. Also, its solutions eliminate bill shock as they bring down international mobile roaming costs. This helps people connect across international borders, said officials.
With Truphone services mobile users traveling internationally don’t need to carry multiple phones, nor do they have to change SIM cards. All smartphone’s are supported by Truphone which leverages an intelligent network, a multi-identity SIM card and a least cost roaming approach to offer cost savings.
“We are focused on business people who travel internationally and offer them a compelling alternative to other providers, particularly when it comes to voice and data roaming. Our mobile innovations and ‘least cost roaming’ approach enable international travelers to stay connected so they can be more productive while abroad without the fear of bill shock,” added Badillo.
Recently Truphone announced the release of its Tru SIM in the nano SIM format to fight the competition with other mobile operators around the globe, and to provide more and more people with access to its Tru service on trending devices, such as iPhone 5 and iPad mini.
