MSUA Member Interview | Patrick Shay, Founder & CEO, Everywhere Communications


Catherine A. Melquist

As vacations wind down, kids return to school and the satellite industry transitions away from summer and into the busy Fall season of conferences and 2020 strategic planning, MSUA members continue to innovate and make market development strides. Case in point, meet Patrick Shay, Founder & CEO of EVERYWHERE Communications.  In this MSUA Member Interview, Patrick details his vision and impressive company news.  

Catherine:  Patrick, Welcome to the Mobile Satellite Users Association!  We feel fortunate to have EVERYWHERE Communications join our membership and look forward to learning more about your organization. Thank you taking time for a Mobility News interview.  To begin, I understand EVERYWHERE Communications has some very exciting news!  Tell me more about your recent teaming relationship with Garmin and what your new dual-mode cellular and satellite innovation will mean to mobile communications. 

Patrick: Thank you, Catherine. It’s great to connect and have the opportunity to talk about how EVERYWHERE Communications is revolutionizing the industry. Let me first explain a little bit about EVERYWHERE, and how we are working to help organizations protect their most important assets – their people. 

Our focus at EVERYWHERE is on organizations with teams that are deployed in the field, who move in an out of cellular and satellite communications, and who need to be able to locate and communicate with those teams to ensure they are productive and safe.  
One of the things that makes us unique is our Intelligent Routing platform and ability to seamlessly connect a user over Wi-Fi, cellular or satellite networks, enabling us to deliver always connected solutions. This capability also allows a user to capture geotagged photos, audio and video files when out of cellular coverage – which is a large achievement, as historically it has been very expensive and difficult to send large files over a satellite connection. With EVERYWHERE’s Intelligent Routing, the user can capture the data in the field and when they connect via cellular, the large files are automatically uploaded using the customer’s existing cellular airtime plan.
Second, we are excited about our recently announced partnership with Garmin. We are thrilled to offer inReach devices, coupled with EVERYWHERE’s purpose-built enterprise software and Intelligent Routing, to government and enterprise markets. Our solution enables organizations to locate and communicate with their teams deployed around the globe. 
In essence, EVERYWHERE Communications is three things – a safety tool that provides the vital communications link for those in trouble; a location and tracking tool that provides customers with visibility to their people deployed around the globe; and a productivity tool to enable them to communicate between team members and back to headquarters.
Catherine: Partnering with a mainstream commercial technology player like Garmin is less common in the satellite industry.  How did this relationship come about and do you think it’s likely we’ll see other such pairings as the mobility field continues to evolve?
Patrick: Click for full interview.
