GSE Partners with Ocens Data Services
Global Satellite Engineering (GSE), pioneers in developing software and customized solutions for satellite communications, is pleased to announce its partnership with the Ocens data services. Ocens will be using GSE’s unique SatCollect software to help them reduce their in-bound call expenditure for all satellite phone usage, via Inmarsat and Iridium networks. SatCollect is GSE’s flagship software solution to allow satellite phone users to select one or many local phone numbers in 41 different countries that will terminate to their satellite phone. For local numbers in the US and Canada, customers can pick their own 10 digit local number. This value added service means that SatCollect customers will always receive calls via a local number that has been forwarded from their satellite phone. They will only be charged the local rate for that particular country to receive a call, as opposed to the expensive satellite long-distance rate. Using SatCollect can also eliminate the cost of roaming charges.
Commenting on the new agreement, Mark Freeberg, CEO of Ocens said, “We wanted an easy, flexible and cost-effective means of helping our customers address a recurring challenge...that is dialing Iridium and Inmarsat phones. Many of our customers are inexperienced satellite users. It goes without saying that their friends, family and business associates are probably even less so. SatCollect provides the most intuitive solution to this problem...simply dial a local number like you would to call the neighbors or the local pizza delivery...and does so inexpensively and reliably”.
Freeberg has received exemplary service from GSE and comments, “I received nothing but the highest caliber of technical expertise and assistance. We continue to be impressed with the innovative satellite hardware and service solutions that Global Satellite Engineering consistently delivers to the marketplace. The customer satisfaction with the SatCollect experience is excellent. The service does what it says it will do and has proven to be an effective and dependable means of reaching our customers”.
SatCollect provides real time billing and real time reporting. SatCollect has also a second tier of control with the option of your bill being prepaid or post paid for either individuals or by group/department or company. Activation is instant online and no special software is needed. Customers go to www.satcollect.com to sign up.
For those customers who require a low cost voice or fax over IP service can purchase as an option GSE’s own customized terminal that plugs into the Internet. The terminal integrates with the worldwide SatCollect platform and can be programmed with its own local number and has the capability of calling anywhere in the world. Recently the SatCollect platform has been expanded to add fax support, and tests have demonstrated that the SatCollect fax service is faster than eFax!
