USA Mobility, the parent company of Amcom Software and USA Mobility Wireless, has changed its name to Spok (pronounced "spoke"), to reflect the changes the company has undergone in the past few years.
Spok provides more than 125,000 organizations worldwide with solutions for workflow improvement, secure texting, paging services, call center optimization, and public safety response. Its solutions are accessible from a variety of mobile devices.
In 2011, USA Mobility purchased Amcom Software, a communication software company offering solutions for clinical alerting, contact centers, emergency management, and secure texting. Today Spok is a fully integrated company employing approximately 650 employees around the globe.
Vincent Kelly, the company's president and CEO, explained in a statement that Spoke "evokes an integral part of a greater whole: like the spokes of a wheel, each supporting the other and the overall network. It's about movement, strength, reliability, and speed--all the things needed in your critical communications.
"This is a unique time for our company as we evolve from providing reliable paging services and market-leading software offerings to an expanded, integrated set of solutions that solve a host of complex challenges in a variety of industries," Kelly added. "Our new single identity creates more value for our key audiences, including customers, partners, employees, and stockholders, as we transition our business to a global software leader in critical communications."
