Cellhire launches Cellhire On Demand to give businesses control over employees’ data roaming costs around the globe – while providing greater data allowances at lower cost
Experience at major events – FIFA World Cups, Cannes Film Festivals, UEFA Euro Finals and the London Olympics – laid the groundwork for the new service
August 26th, 2016. York, UK. Cellhire – recently busy at the Rio Olympics with providing data and voice products and services to major media and other corporations – has launched Cellhire On Demand, which enables businesses to regain control over employees’ data roaming costs in 98+ countries worldwide.
Cellhire On Demand – www.cellhire.co.uk/ondemand – also provides greater data allowances at lower cost. Features include over-the-air SIM activation and deactivation, the ability to re-assign SIM cards to specific users at any time and a barring function to manage theft and loss.
The service operates via a secure online portal and a central pool of SIM cards and MiFi devices [small portable wireless routers] supplied by Cellhire, which businesses keep on site to ensure instant availability and abolish the need for multiple shipping charges.
Says Matt Bennett, Cellhire UK Managing Director, “Cellhire On Demand cuts costs, saves time and ends complexity. Further savings are achieved by the improved data allowances we offer at lower prices.
“It enables businesses to gain complete control over their mobile phone usage, including control over every connection and see an overview of all active data bundles at any time.”
Data sharing via MiFi
Bennett continues, “Compared to the current process of businesses phoning their network provider to enable a costly roaming data bolt-on, Cellhire On Demand is a real step forward. Another plus is that data can be shared securely between multiple phones, laptops and tablets by using a MiFi.”
He adds, “Activating and deactivating data bundles leads to a reduction in data roaming costs and is easy to manage. User organisations receive early high usage warnings with daily alerts and can reduce overage bills with the ability to automatically deactivate or renew data bundles once the bundle limit has been reached.”
Cellhire is a significant player in the UK and globally in wireless communications, winning contracts to provide major media and other corporations with data and voice products and services at leading events including FIFA World Cups, Cannes Film Festivals, UEFA Euro Finals and the London Olympics.
“Our experience at these events, combined with the services we offer from our offices in the UK, USA, France, Germany, Brazil, Russia and Japan, laid the groundwork for Cellhire On Demand,” says Bennett.
Founded in York in 1987, Cellhire is a specialist global service provider. The company’s success is built on providing the very best wireless solutions available anywhere and the company prides itself on being easy to do business with. Cellhire is a leading supplier to organisers and businesses during events such as the Olympic Games, FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro finals and The Cannes Film Festival.
In 2005 Cellhire won the Queen’s Award for International Enterprise as a result of its success as a specialist in the delivery of communications solutions for events around the world.

TestApproved launches, offers a new, on-demand way to test web pages and entire sites quickly at low cost
TestApproved is for use by independent web designers, SME and large Ecommerce operations, digital agencies and public sector website developers
Wakefield, July 5th 2016. Businesses are now able to test small and large sections of their website quickly and cost effectively thanks to TestApproved – testapproved.com – which launches today. An affordable alternative to costly traditional testing projects, TestApproved has individual page tests from as little as £50 and end to end checkout tests all the way up to full site testing conducted by experienced, UK based testers.
TestApproved provides a new, on-demand way of testing by dispensing with contracts and briefs and allowing customers to pick and choose online what they want tested – and giving them the option to purchase different testing credit bundles. The offering includes bigger discounts on larger credit bundles. Alternatively, customers can pay as they go without purchasing credits.
“The service is a perfect solution for digital agencies to outsource to because it provides a healthy balance between flexibility, resource management and price sensitivity,” says TestApproved Managing Director James Hepton.
“Traditional human testing of web pages can be time consuming and come with briefs, specs and high costs. TestApproved is the complete opposite. It’s quick and inexpensive making it ideal for checking a website or any part of it prior to launch or after an update.
“And by not being tied to a contract, customers can pick and chose from a menu whenever they want and at any time in the 24-hour cycle, without having to worry about contractual obligations.”
Testing reports are delivered through the website’s easy to use bug tracking service with every customer having its own private access. Customers have the option to be emailed every time a new issue or bug is found or a recommendation is made.
Hepton says, “We’ve worked hard to bring something to market that allows people to test the most commonly changed elements of their site easily and cost-effectively, with no time wasted on briefs and contracts. TestApproved is a genuine breakthrough in bringing on-demand, commonly required testing solutions to the mass market.
“Our test menus are produced and conducted by experienced people who have been building websites their entire career. As a result, we’re able to make recommendations around content, structure and general best practice.”
Hepton adds, “While our core products are complemented by a fully bespoke test creation for larger orders, the primary focus of TestApproved is on reducing the cost of everyday testing requirements. We all know how tight resource can be sometimes when having to get multiple projects over the line but too often critical testing gets overlooked. With TestApproved it needn’t be.”
A free trial without obligation is available at testapproved.com offering free credits to experience the process before making any commitments. “TestApproved can help make websites better with unbiased, fresh eyes,” says Hepton. “Our free trial allows users to find that out for themselves, at no cost.”

April 27th 2016. York. People tracking apps from Vismo Tracking Solutions were used on used on two recently completed expeditions – Levison Wood Walking the Himalayas, and The Amazon River Run – to show their support teams where they were, allow visitors to the website of the Amazon expedition to track progress at any time and enable Channel Four to identify Wood’s location 24/7.
Both expeditions started in 2015 and employed a combination of the Vismo app on their smartphones and the RockSTAR Satellite Tracker for those areas where there was no mobile phone coverage.
It’s not the first time Vismo has sponsored and supported expeditions this way. In December 2013, British explorer and former parachute regiment officer Levison Wood started his nine month, 4,250 mile expedition along the Nile, through six countries, from its source to its delta in Egypt, with the Vismo app on his mobile phone.
Last year he set out from Afghanistan on a 1700 mile – or four million steps – trek along some of the most stunning but inhospitable terrain on the planet, in the Himalayas, again supported by Vismo.
In South America, Olie Hunter Smart and Tarran Kent-Hume kayaked the entire 4,000 miles [6,500km] length of the Amazon, the world’s longest river, in support of charities – the children’s muscular dystrophy Duchenne Children’s Trust – http://www.dc-trust.org – and the universal primary education Limited Resource Teacher Training – http://lrtt.org
They could be tracked live at http://www.amazonriverrun.com thanks to the RockSTAR and the Vismo app identifying their position every hour. They were also helped by NASA – which has provided them with flooded rainforest data – and other sponsors.
Says Colin Dale, head of business development, Vismo, “The RockSTAR is ideal for the expedition environment as it offers truly global coverage using the Iridium Network and has a battery life of more than 2500 transmissions from a single charge. And it’s waterproof, which is ideal when you’re spending months in a kayak. In conjunction with our app it can pinpoint an individual’s position very accurately.”
About Vismo Tracking Solutions
Vismo Tracking Solutions markets and supports innovative patent pending technology developed, in response to customer demand, by Cellhire plc, a leading global service provider of mobile communications based in the UK.
Cellhire is a Queen’s Award winning independent company that has been in business since 1987 and is represented around the world with offices in Dallas, Washington DC, London, York, Paris, Munich, Tokyo and Russia.
The company works with network operators globally to provide short and long term mobile communication services for some of the leading companies in the world.
February 25th 2016. York, UK. Vismo, the Global Tracking Solutions specialist, has been awarded a patent for its technology for GPS tracking on mobile devices. The company previously had a patent pending and has now secured a full patent for its unique operation.
The awarded patent, GB2470376, specifically covers the design behind the algorithms and innovative operations of the Vismo tracking software to optimise location accuracy with minimal battery drain.
The algorithms use a combination of metrics from the phone such as speed, GPS, network information and cell tower locations to determine optimal accuracy for locations from the device, without incurring the large battery drain usually typical of GPS tracking applications.
Fundamental to the approach is how Vismo utilizes the functionality of mobile devices, minimising the use of navigational sensors by placing them into hibernation between pre-determined intervals and using environmental information to quickly locate a device without lengthy GPS warm-up periods. Ultimately, this produces a chronological “trail” following a user’s location point-by-point on a map.
Colin Dale, Business Development Director at Vismo says, “We have always prided ourselves on the unique operation of our app and we are delighted to be recognised as owning the technology. One of our key USPs is maintaining such comprehensive and accurate international tracking while stretching battery life as much as possible.”
Vismo is available across all major mobile platforms including iOS, Android and Windows. For more information visit www.vismo.com.

Dinamiks Ltd announces Dinamiks HR Absence Management, a cloud-based tool that can also be used for human resource planning, improving employee performance – and presenteeism
– Optionally links to the company’s employee performance management solution, Dinamiks Lite –
November 18th 2015. Chichester. Dinamiks Ltd has announced the cloud based Dinamiks HR Absence Management, designed for use with all kinds of absence – holidays/leave, sickness, training and compassionate leave included. Priced at £1 per employee per month, it’s unique among staff leave planners because it can be linked with the company’s employee performance management solution, Dinamiks Lite.
The tool simplifies staffing processes and can also be deployed for human resource planning, enabling the user organisation to plug resource gaps caused by absence in order to meet business needs and customer demands. The optional integration with Dinamiks Lite allows absence to be measured against performance and a picture to be built up over time of an individual’s or team’s performance.
“Likewise, patterns of sick leave can be compared to performance over the same time scale, enabling the employer to take action, within the boundaries of employment legislation, where it sees fit,” says Dinamiks Ltd Managing Director Simon Barnes. “The action can be counselling, training, giving warnings and improving performance.”
Other capabilities of Dinamiks HR Absence Management, which costs £1 per employee per month, include tracking absence entitlements and flexible working arrangements, and providing better organised absence records.
“Because of what it can do, including the linkage to Dinamiks Lite’s capabilities, it’s an all-encompassing package for busy SMEs and HR departments,” says Barnes.
Highly customisable within an easy-to-use environment, Dinamiks HR Absence Management can also be used for managing presenteeism, the catch-all description for employees working while sick. “Considered by some to be the opposite of absenteeism, presenteeism – and its positive, negative or neutral effect on an individual’s performance – can be tracked, analysed and managed as effectively as absenteeism,” says Barnes.
A free trial of Dinamiks HR Absence Management is available via http://dinamiks.com/HRTrial.aspx
