Hi there! If you're new to the site, you may want to subscribe to the the feed.
We’ve long been fans of kajeet, the cell phone service for tweens. In fact, in our next edition of the Prepaid Podcast, we’ll have CEO Daniel Neal talk a bit more about how the company has developed over the past six months. We got news late yesterday that the company has taken home an award for top MVNO service innovation at the Global Telecoms Business Innovation Awards, which took place in London.
While kajeet was recognized for all of their services, WalletManager stole the show. It is an application which lets parents and kids figure out who pays for what. For instance, the parent might pay the daily access fee and for 50 minutes monthly. After that, it’s on the kid. That includes extra minutes, text messages, and multimedia services. Even if the child’s account runs out of money, though, calls from parents can still go through.
“We are very proud to be recognized as an innovation leader in the global market,” said Daniel Neal, CEO and Founder of kajeet. “Families with kids have unique service requirements, such as letting parents set limits for calls and texts, and allowing parents and kids to block calls and texts they don’t want to receive. Telcordia’s ability to power innovative, real-time services has enabled us to differentiate ourselves in the wireless market as the cell phone service made for kids.”
