txtNation announce deal with KidSpotter for Child Safety SMS tracking


txtNation, leading mobile payments provider and SMS aggregator, today announced that they are working with KidSpotter, the leading child safety tracking system.

KidSpotter is the world’s first indoor and outdoor location system designed for safety conscious venues and operates in high footfall markets such as theme and leisure parks across the world.

KidSpotter is seen as the worlds most advanced child locating system in operation and is a recognised leader in child safety solutions.

With this deal, txtNation are enabling KidSpotter to allow parents to register via SMS to tie the phone in with their revolutionary wrist device. If a child is lost then parents can simply send a text message to the txtNation powered SMS Short-Code which instantly alerts them or the venue.

Added to this innovative offering, is an extra security mechanism where a boundary alert via SMS is sent to the parent when the child leaves the area. KidSpotter locating is achieved by children simply wearing a small, lightweight watch like device.

So far this solution in collaboration with txtNation anchoring the SMS Messaging has been deployed in major theme parks operated by industry leaders, including SeaWorld Entertainments and Parques Reunidos.

Andrew Dunne, Director of KidSpotter says "The partnership with txtNation into our platform is very important as SMS communication is the tool that allows the parent to locate the Spotter being worn by the child through their phone. When choosing a partner, it was vital for us to work with a company with a global reach and have direct connectivity with multiple operators and txtNation very much fits that bill.”

txtNation, who have a substantial history in the mobile alerts and SMS messaging arena are said to be delighted to be working with KidSpotter on this initiative.

Michael Whelan, Director of txtNation says "This is something txtNation fully endorse and are proud to be a part of. KidSpotter is setting the standard on child safety and communications with this innovative service. We think this is something all parents would want to sign-up for."

On the back of this deal, txtNation are inviting all brands and service developers interested in connecting to test the flagship global SMS gateway.

As the market leader in SMS messaging, txtNation are backing KidSpotter for success, with new markets opening to utilise this much sought after service.
