Interoute, owner operator of Europe’s largest cloud service platform, is supporting Kids Non-Profit Organization (KNPO), a charity dedicated to reducing the number of child deaths caused by traffic accidents in developing countries through its Bead Initiative.
Interoute provides KNPO with free use of its cloud-based Unified Communications solution Interoute One Bridge. The solution from Interoute helps KNPO collaborate and operate across the globe and improves productivity, communication and effectiveness.
KNPO manufactures and distributes colourful reflective beads that can be made into bracelets, headbands and bag decorations. The beads reflect the beams from a car’s headlights making the children more visible to drivers.
KNPO uses Interoute One Bridge to connect and collaborate with volunteers and ethical production partners around the world on a daily basis. Accessible on any device, anywhere and with WebRTC capability and unlimited video and audio conference bridges that use local direct dial numbers in over 40 countries to reduce costs, collaboration is easy.
Founder Richard Ahlström said: “The Interoute One Bridge solution that Interoute provides for us means we can now collaborate and share ideas virtually anywhere, regardless of whether we are near Lac in Malawi, Stockholm or San Francisco. This also saves us money, which means we can produce more beads and, ultimately, save more lives.” Mark Lewis, VP for Communication & Connectivity Product Solutions, Interoute said: “KNPO’s Bead Initiative is a brilliant way to tackle the problem of how to reduce child road accidents in developing countries. Interoute is delighted to play a small part in helping a bright idea light up the world.”
