Former Virgin Mobile USA Executives Launch ‘Mast’

Using smart phone

Three former Virgin Mobile USA executives have launched Mast, a software communications platform designed to eliminate the need for BYOD policies, multiple work and personal devices, and desk phones in the workplace which have all caused complications in the enterprise arena.

The mobile business communications platform gives employees the freedom and flexibility needed to be productive, a provided statement explains. The platform gives each employee one device with separate and personal numbers, simplifying the mobility management processes.

Mast is also announcing that it has received over $7million in funding from lead investor FirstMark Capital, along with DFJ, Eniac Ventures, Harrison Metal, HMM Investors, and Initialized Ventures.

Those behind the effort say Mast reduces inefficiencies and the costs associated with getting employees set up with a phone line. Once a company account is created, an employee can be added to the system in less than a minute and receive the new device within 24 hours. It allows employees to manage their work and personal lives more seamlessly.
