Global Roaming Announces New Business Features for CelTrek

Global Roaming Announces New Business Features for CelTrek

Global Roaming Distribution (OTCBB: GRDB), a telecommunications holding company specializing in providing extremely low-cost roaming solutions for corporations and leisure travelers around the globe, announces new features and improvements to the Company’s flagship product, the CELTREKTM SIM Card. This innovative SIM Card provides full-service international roaming coverage effectively and without expensive fees.

CELTREKTM has two sets of benefits over any of its competition. The first is direct and simple: It is cheaper for users. Global Roaming Distribution has planned a customer-focused pricing system that offers discounts up to 90% on comparable charges levied by most local carriers.

The CELTREKTM advantage goes beyond costs. The second benefit and the benefit most appreciated by frequent travelers, is that this one card works in 165 countries, covering all continents, and provides users with a local US phone number. Customers can stay in touch virtually wherever they may travel on business or leisure and their callers can reach them with the ease of dialing a local number. The new enhanced CELTREKTM SIM card with its advanced facilities such as call forwarding and caller identification transforms a cellular hand set in to a full-feature telephone system no matter where you are in the world.

The following features as well as many more make up the new CELTREK™ Global roaming SIM card:

  • Call forwarding via the Web to any number worldwide. For example, a CelTrek user can forward his unique CelTrek phone number to his US number when back home, and additionally forward any number to his CelTrek phone.
  • CelTrek caller ID – The CelTrek phone number will be displayed when a user makes an outgoing call.
  • More options for recharging airtime. You can recharge through the CelTrek phone via PIN code. The SIM is also ready to add “scratch card” top ups.
  • New account access through the SIM menu with check balance, check number, and add credit.
  • A dramatic increase in the number of compatible phones and devices
  • Automatic Recharge web-based tool – available to CelTrek resellers/developers/direct users to manage on a SIM-by-SIM basis according to customers’ needs and security thresholds
  • Billing available online 24/7 directly though your account (resellers, developers, direct users and customers)
  • Enhanced security for CelTrek resellers and developers by adding 24/7 online ability to block SIM cards.

“Not only do roaming customers want great rates, they also want a phone that gives them all the features they would expect from their home office phone. We are always striving to surprise them,” says Jenny Callicott, COO of Global Roaming. “Our increasing list of features and competitive advantages assists the Company’s goal to be a leader in international cell phone coverage.”

Global Roaming Distribution can expect to make major inroads in the pre-paid, enterprise and corporate markets with its new SIM product. Multiple options for recharging, and user-friendly support around the clock, will surely draw in customers who have been accustomed to changing cellular telephone systems country by country until now. CELTREKTM also helps users stay within budgets, and to avoid the shock of outrageous roaming fees on their phone bills back home.

Resellers have important roles in pre-paid SIM card marketing. Distributors will be pleased with the latest version of CELTREKTM because the attractive pricing and valuable new features will help build their own enterprises. Surveys show demand for high-end SIM cards such as CELTREKTM rising rapidly all over the world. The Asia-Pacific region alone is expected to cross 1 billion units by 2010. Global Roaming Distribution is now a top choice for world travelers of all genres from the US.
