AMHERST, N.Y. — American Coradius International LLC (www.acillc.us), a leader in 1st and 3rd party debt collection services, has announced a partnership with San Francisco-based startup Yondr (www.overyondr.com) to provide a cutting edge solution to ensuring a “cell phone-free workplace”.
Yondr produces and distributes a lockable phone pouch designed for use in schools, concert venues, corporate offices and more. Yondr has made a splash in recent months in the entertainment world with artists including Dave Chappelle, Alicia Keys and Guns N' Roses enlisting the company to secure all audience members' phones in Yondr pouches before entering their shows. "Phones remain locked and in possession of their owners throughout the duration of a given event," says Graham Dugoni, Yondr's Founder and CEO. "Designed to scale seamlessly from intimate to larger settings, Yondr establishes phone-free environments in which security, exclusivity and privacy are of the utmost importance."
ACI struck a partnership with Yondr while exploring options to improve corporate cell phone controls; while being mindful of employee needs. All ACI employees will be assigned a personal Yondr pouch for their cell phone. Upon entering ACI’s facilities employees, vendors and visitors will be required to secure their cell phone in a self-locking Yondr pouch. Unlocking stations will be made available in non-production areas such as the lobby and cafeteria; where cell phone usage is permitted by company policy.
“ACI is very excited to incorporate Yondr’s one of a kind technology to ensure the strongest levels of security when it comes to our client’s and customer’s data. Our goal is to provide a 100% cell phone-free workplace, while allowing our employees to maintain possession of their personal cell phones”, says Robert Duggan, ACI’s Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
"This is an incredibly natural partnership for Yondr, as our company offers the ideal service to assist ACI in establishing, maintaining and improving upon its already rigorous security standards," says Dugoni. "We're looking forward to working hand in hand with ACI in achieving its goals."
