USA Mobility Wireless and Amcom Software Come Together Under Single Identity, Further Integrating Critical Communication Solutions

USA Mobility, Inc., including Amcom Software and USA Mobility Wireless, has announced a new corporate name, Spok (pronounced “spoke”), launching a new era in critical communications with an innovative and combined identity. 

“We believe our new corporate name reflects the significant changes our Company has undergone in recent years,” said Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief executive officer, “and will better define the strategic direction we are pursuing toward a successful future.  Why ‘Spok?’ Because it 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.   After all, a closed loop is what it’s all about.”

In 2011, USA Mobility, the market leader in paging and wireless messaging, purchased Amcom Software, an industry-leading communication software company offering solutions for clinical alerting, contact centers, emergency management, and secure texting.  Among Amcom’s recent contracts was in renovating the Clifton (NJ) Police Department communications center in 2013, replacing its outmoded dispatch technology, telephone, and radio systems.  The new Amcom PC/PSAP integrated with the agency’s existing PBX or Centrex telephone systems and is working seamlessly on the city’s new Avaya system.  (see case study here).

Now joined with USA Mobility as Spok, is a leader in critical communications, and its solutions are accessible from a variety of mobile devices to help ensure information is delivered when and where it matters most. Spok continues to provide more than 125,000 organizations worldwide with effective solutions for workflow improvement, secure texting, paging services, call center optimization, and public safety response.
