An innovative new app from Portuguese tech company iToorer solves a longstanding problem for international travelers and digital nomads: the exorbitant cost of data and roaming charges. The app also presents new revenue and communications channels for hotels, travel advisors, and other suppliers who offer it to clients.
Porto, Portugal, Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iToorer, a Portugal-based developer of global technology solutions for travel connectivity, is introducing a new product that is set to revolutionize the way travelers use their smartphones while abroad. iToorer's mobile app, available for iOS and Android, gives users unlimited, secure high-performance connectivity shareable with additional devices, free international and local outgoing and incoming calls, and essential travel content — all for one low price.
With iToorer's app, international travelers will no longer have to purchase expensive international data plans, incur sky-high roaming charges, fear sticker shock from unintended data usage, or spend precious vacation time hunting down local SIM cards or unsecured Wi-Fi hotspots. The app lets travelers stay in touch with friends, family, and colleagues — and use all their web-enabled smartphone apps — in more than 100 countries around the world. Global travelers will be able to use their smartphones just as they do at home, confident in the service's cost, security, and reliability.
The app also provides a new revenue stream and communications channel for hotels, airlines, travel management companies, loyalty programs, and other travel supplier partners that offer it to their clients. Infinitely customizable, the app displays the partner's brand and allows for direct communication with the client for information, sales, and marketing. Through the app, a supplier can promote a special offer, encourage a future booking, send an alert about changes or disruptions, or let the client place a direct (and free) call to customer support.
This new mobile technology solution is the logical evolution of iToorer's legacy product, which provides similar services to both clients and partners via a separate device. By developing an app with a virtual SIM card, the app offers travelers unlimited data for both web browsing and international phone calls in over 100 countries while using their own devices and all of the apps they have installed. The app is compatible with most models of iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy, and Google Pixel devices, with additional devices being added frequently.
iToorer's new app includes the following valuable features for a low daily cost:
Unlike many carriers' international plans, iToorer will guarantee your high-performance connectivity usage. And because the app is powered by a virtual SIM card, there is no need to physically replace the SIM card in the user's smartphone. (iToorer also offers less expensive plans that cap data at 1GB or 500 MB per day.)
(Coming soon: A later phase of the app will include the option to obtain a local number for incoming calls.)
"This new app is an elegant, all-in-one solution for one of the most vexing — and costly — problems that global travelers will face as they return to the road post-pandemic: exorbitant fees for international data roaming plans and international phone calls," says Diogo Pinto Sousa, Business Developer of iToorer. "The app's launch is perfectly timed for the rise of the 'digital nomad' lifestyle, allowing employees to stay in touch with colleagues and attend virtual meetings while on the road."
The app is priced well below the global data plans offered by the major cellular carriers. For partners, there is no upfront investment required, and iToorer shares the revenue generated.
