We begin our story as a payphone provider, in 1986 when the entire national marketplace for public phones was deregulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in Washington, DC. Some 10,000 or more businesses opened overnight – a modern day ‘land rush’- to compete with the Bell Companies within the payphone marketplace. Now, two and a half decades later, there is one new leader – our public phone services company, Pacific Telemanagement Services (PTS), serving clients across the nation from 13 service facilities and client locations in 48 states. Along the way, we recognized that our commitment to high quality services, and the logistical expertise this generated throughout our organizations, made our field teams, our ‘go to market’ teams, quite special. We began to layer in additional businesses; each of which share unique characteristics with our payphone services operations. Our newest product looks to address the ever growing need for “People In Motion” to access the internet, their email, and their social media connections. We call it Free Connect and it is currently being installed across America in special locations where masses of people are in motion. Airports, shopping malls, hospitals, colleges, and other locations will be able to offer a free access portal to the web and all such applications. Many people carry a mobile device, but the majority of people in fact do not – and the Free Connect screens are fast, high definition, 22 inches wide, and FREE. Our display and content partners are creating a revenue model to support these offerings.
