Kidspotter needed to work with a partner that provided a robust SMS Gateway, to facilitate SMS Messaging for their core services. They chose txtNation following extensive research and testing.

The partnership with txtNation into our platform is very important as SMS communication is the tool that allows the parent to locate the Spotter being worn by the child through their phone. When choosing a partner, it was vital for us to work with a company with a global reach and have direct connectivity with multiple operators and txtNation very much fits that bill.

Course of Action

txtNation enabled KidSpotter to allow parents to register via SMS to tie their phone in with a revolutionary wrist device. If a child is lost, the parent can send an SMS message to a short-code, which instantly alerts them of the location. Added to this, is an extra security features where an SMS is sent to the parent when the child leaves the area. The child needs only to wear a small, lightweight watch-like device.


This solution in collaboration with txtNation anchoring the SMS Messaging was successfully deployed in major theme parks operated by industry leaders, including SeaWorld Entertainments and Parques Reunidos.
