Montreal’s Radialpoint has announced that Garlik, Trusted ID and Xooloo have joined Radialpoint’s partner program, expanding its ecosystem of digital home services. With these new additions, Radialpoint’s technology brand customers have a new suite of monitoring services that they can provide their customers in support of the Connected Home.
“We are committed to helping our customers monetize the Connected Home opportunity, and we are pleased to be working with the leading ID Theft Monitoring, Credit Score Monitoring and Parental Control firms to continue to bring our customers the services that end-users are spending billions of dollars on today,” said Michael Wexler, Vice President Business Development and Product Strategy at Radialpoint. “With our robust ecosystem and the unique delivery of our services, Radialpoint is further demonstrating how we differentiate our offering – by providing technology brands with value-added solutions to meet the consumer need.”
As consumers become more technologically sophisticated, electronics retailers, PC OEMs, MSOs and Telco’s are looking to drive a seamless experience for their customers that is more than just tech support. With an open SaaS platform, Radialpoint brings a rich line up of in-demand consumer services to their customers; services that help these customers to generate millions of dollars in consumer spend.
With losses from ID Theft reaching $37 Billion in 2010 (according to Javelin Strategy & Research July 2011), credit score monitoring technology emerging as a viable service category, and with an increase in demand for simple, yet functional, Parental Controls, Radialpoint offers its customers improved monitoring and protection options that they can in turn offer to their customers.
“We are extremely pleased to partner our identity protection service with Radialpoint,” said Andy Thomas, Managing Director at Garlik. “Now consumers have a robust and complete Connected Home solution that they can trust especially as more people are shopping, banking and sharing personal information online.”
“With the rapid growth of identity theft, protecting your credit and personal information both online and off is extremely important,” said Scott Mitic, CEO of TrustedID. “We are delighted to be working with Radialpoint to provide these key protections as part of the Radialpoint Connected Home solution.”
“The digital-life of kids is becoming one of the hardest challenges parents today have to face because they want to make sure that they are keeping their kids out of trouble while they are online, without hindering their independence,” said Gregory Veret, President of Xooloo. “We are excited about our relationship with Radialpoint and to be included in their award winning cloud based platform. Together we provide a strategic point of control giving parents peace of mind when their kids are online.”
