SinglePoint Signs Distribution Agreement to Partner With Glympse(R) on Marketing Real-Time Location Platform for SMB
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/15 -- SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING), a state-of-the-art mobile technology and full-service mobile marketing company, announces today that it has signed a license distribution agreement with Glympse®, a revolutionary location sharing technology company, to market dynamic location capabilities to Small- and Medium-sized businesses (SMB) through its Oomy application.
Glympse is the pioneer in real-time location sharing, and its technology allows smartphone users to share their location with anyone for a pre-determined period of time. Recipients can view the sender's location on a dynamic map, either on mobile or web -- they do not need to have Glympse installed to be able to see the person move from place to place. Unlike other location sharing offerings, Glympse is simple, safe and easy to use.
The company already works with Fortune 500 companies in a variety of industries, including automotive, airline, mapping, and wireless. Partners include: Verizon Messages, BlackBerry and Samsung, who use its tech in their messaging apps: BMW, MINI, Ford, GM, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes, Volkswagen and Volvo, who have integrated Glympse into their in-car systems; watches from Pebble and Samsung; Garmin and NAVIGON in navigation systems; and Gogo inflight.
The Agreement allows SinglePoint to fully integrate the Glympse® Enterprise API capabilities, such as location sharing, route optimization, and real time last mile notifications to merchants customers, with Oomy, the Company's location based brand, allowing it to market Glympse's robust capabilities to small- and medium-sized businesses.
This allows clients to add multiple drivers to enable businesses to track, communicate, and streamline delivery operations including fleet management, commodity delivery and much more. In addition, Oomy will further benefit clients with payment processing, mobile ordering, customer engagement and retention opportunities.
SinglePoint CEO Greg Lambrecht states, "We are very excited to be officially a distribution partner of Glympse and have the access we need to successfully launch Oomy and service what the industry is witnessing as an insatiable appetite for apps which innovate the current geo-location landscape."
Glympse® CEO and co-founder Bryan Trussel states, "We have enormous inbound interest in our platform, and we are excited to provide our location technology to companies where it will have an immediate benefit. Working with SinglePoint's Oomy allows us to take the next step to expand into new markets and meet the needs of new customers."
Lambrecht adds, "The power of locational services and smart devices is enabling us to develop ways to give users the information they need to better manage their time. Thanks to this strategic partnership, Oomy provides this technology to small- and mid-size companies with an affordable, easy to use native or web-enabled application anyone can use."
