Established and headquartered in Miami, Florida since 1994, Blackstone is privately owned and managed by a team of executives experienced in payments processing, networking information services, retail marketing and telecommunications. Under their direction, Blackstone has established ongoing relationships with internationally recognized companies such as Americatel, AT&T Wireless, BellSouth, Cingular, Embratel, Cisco Systems, Fifth Third Bancorp, Hypercom, IDT and T-Mobile.
As the prepaid telecommunications industry exploded in the mid 90s, Blackstone Calling Card rapidly became one of the country's largest providers of prepaid telecommunications products and services with over 300,000 retail locations and over 7500 agents/distributors nationwide. Over the years, our agents, distributors, merchants and consumers have relied on Blackstone to provide dependable products at competitive prices.
During the spring of 1999, Blackstone Calling Card realized that point-of-sale (POS) was the key to long-term success in the prepaid arena, especially prepaid cellular. So development began on what was to be a tool to enable merchants to offer an entire suite of prepaid products without purchasing or storing any inventory.
Today, Blackstone provides innovative solutions to local, national and international companies seeking to maximize their full potential - from calling cards, POS terminals, merchant processing, vending machines to BioSnap Stations - Blackstone offers a complete array of services through new technologies and strategic alliances around the world. – less–ZoomInfo
