Starhome offers Global Daylight Saving Alert ..
Starhome offers Global Daylight Saving Alert to millions of roaming tourists This weekend, for the first time in history, international travellers around the world will receive a special Welcome SMS reminding them to put their clocks back. Starhome, a leader in global service provision for mobile operators, makes the global Welcome SMS possible. There's always the problem of millions of tourists abroad, who don't realise that they have to turn back the clocks - but this year it won't be the subscribers of the mobile operators which run Starhome services. The notification will be sent in the UK, Germany, Romania, Hungary, and more than 10 other countries across Europe. Starhome - the only roaming and content provider in the world with the global awareness and global perspective to offer this service - can identify incoming tourists, and give mobile operators the ability to alert users across the globe, in their own language, of the right time to turn back their clocks. "At Starhome, we believe in the 'Mobile Village' and in offering roaming services that are truly useful to users," said Eyal Rivlin, Starhome VP of Marketing. "The Daylight Saving Alert is an example of the global reach of our services plus the ability to individualise to users no matter what language they speak or time zone they're in."
