goTenna’s provides unique radio frequency (RF) attachments for smartphones that allow users to communicate with one another without the need for cellphone networks. goTenna-enabled devices can be used to create secure, off-grid Voice, SMS, Data and Positioning Ad-Hoc networks at virtually no costs. But the company needed a platform to help them get their product to customers, monitor hardware and manage subscriber accounts—and lacked the in-house capacity to pull it off. Enter Silstone.
Silstone Group was able put a team in place on very short notice to help the goTenna team create a hardware commissioning platform. We created a business solution for the product, including a subscription system that managed services for different types of subscribers. We also created a web-based administrator portal that allowed the company to manage all of its devices, subscribers and allot usage frequencies. Our team was instrumental in helping goTenna innovate—we took a concept and turned it into a product.
