(PRWEB) June 20, 2013
Zact announced today that it has been named to the annual FierceWireless “Fierce 15” list, designating it as one of the top privately held wireless companies of the year. FierceWireless editors evaluated hundreds of organizations, and found Zact to be one of the “fiercest,” proven by their creativity and innovations in the marketplace.
FierceWireless, an internationally recognized daily email newsletter reaching more than 80,000 senior wireless industry executives, provides executives in over 100 countries with a quick, authoritative briefing on the day's top wireless stories, including new trends and technologies.
“Using the ItsOn platform, Zact delivers granular, customizable wireless plans for customers that are based around how they actually use their service,” said Phil Goldstein, Editor of FierceWireless. “By giving consumers greater flexibility in how they want to use mobile data, apps and their wireless service in general, Zact offers a plan that larger carriers can’t match.”
Announced by ItsOn on May 13, 2013, Zact is a new consumer mobile service that gives people a whole new level of freedom, flexibility and control. With Zact, customers can easily and quickly select almost any increment of voice, text and data independently of one another. Plans are adjustable right from Zact enabled devices. There’s no need to worry about unused minutes or data with Zact’s Never Overpay Guarantee since money is credited back to a user’s account if they’ve bought too much. With Zact, any plan is sharable – there is no limit to the number of Zact-enabled devices that can be added to an account. Outside of a nominal $4.99 line charge per each device, there are no additional fees and no need to buy a separate plan. In addition, built-in parental controls let users easily set curfews, and restrict apps, browsing and contacts on a child’s phone.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by FierceWireless, the industry’s must-read news leader,” said Greg Raleigh, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for ItsOn, parent company of Zact. “ItsOn’s technology allows Zact to deliver a truly game-changing approach for consumers to manage their wireless service plans. Our platform not only serves Zact customers, but it gives mobile operators, OEMs, and OS suppliers a cloud-based service platform that enhances existing mobile service plan offerings. It’s an honor for our company to be recognized for its innovation by the FierceWireless ‘Fierce 15.’”
