RACO Wireless receives North American award for its success in realizing its vision of becoming the best M2M service provider

CINCINNATI, Ohio – February 7, 2012 – RACO Wireless, a preferred machine-to-machine (M2M) partner for T-Mobile USA, Inc., today revealed that it has been awarded Frost & Sullivan’s “2012 Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award” in the North American M2M communications market.

Frost & Sullivan recognized RACO Wireless as a visionary company that has made it much easier for solution providers to deploy M2M applications. The growth partnership company measured RACO Wireless’ performance using these criteria: growth strategy excellence, growth implementation excellence, degree of innovation with products and technologies, leadership in customer value, and speed of response to market needs.

Frost & Sullivan noted that the company’s speed of execution serves as a clear differentiator from other market participants – and clearly helped contribute to RACO Wireless’ 300 percent growth in M2M connections in 2011.

For instance, Frost & Sullivan analysts point out that RACO Wireless:

  • “can literally get customers up and running in a matter of a few hours;”
  • “works closely with customers to customize pricing around their unique business models;”
  •  “has already planned for future deployments by having the ability to scale up to 10 times from its present capacity without modifying its systems;”
  • “has a dedicated support staff available to help customers navigate the inherent complexities of the M2M space.

 

“RACO Wireless has set the bar for customer value in the North American M2M communications market. Frost & Sullivan attributes RACO Wireless’ exceptional performance to a robust product portfolio, strong service and support capabilities, and the overall strategic acumen of its leadership team who is dedicated to speed of execution,” said  Frost & Sullivan Global Research Director Brent Iadarola. “The company continues to grow by providing ‘complete’ M2M solutions that go beyond simply providing the connectivity services for M2M. This is just one reason the company has emerged as a preferred provider of end-to-end M2M solutions in North America.”

 

“This award recognizes RACO Wireless’ unique vision and approach to the M2M marketplace,” said John Horn, president of RACO Wireless. “Frost & Sullivan’s research clearly demonstrates what our M2M solutions partners already know: the combination of RACO Wireless’ unique tools, our relationship with T-Mobile and our highly qualified team – which has more than 200 years of collective industry experience – give our solution partners an unbeatable roadmap for M2M success.”
