Barely 13 years have passed since Cyril Vidal decided to undertake the Crosscall business project when he detected a market opportunity in the absence of really resistant mobiles for complicated environments and extreme athletes. In 2022, there are already several companies and public institutions in France that already know first-hand Crosscall and its ever-increasing catalog of rugged mobiles, capable of withstanding all kinds of shocks and extreme conditions.
Crosscall models are part of the equipment of the professionals of the French public railway company (SNCF), the Gendarmerie or the fire departments. Before reaching these organizations, these mobiles, not particularly elegant in design but whose robustness can be seen with the naked eyehave had to pass a series of rigorous tests at their offices in Aix-en-Provence, which your expert invited by Crosscall was able to attend along with other media.
The tests faced by Crosscall mobiles are much more demanding than those of the traditional models that we use on a daily basis. For example, to test the resistance to falls, at the Crosscall headquarters the mobiles are dropped from a height of two meters onto a marble slab, while ‘normal’ phones only overcome falls of 1.2 meters.
Abrasions, scratches, crushing, water resistance… All imaginable dirty tricks that can be done to a mobile are carried out in the laboratory of the Crosscall headquarters to obtain the certificates that demonstrate its durability. After passing each one, the mobiles are cleaned with water under a tap (being ruggedized they have a much greater tightness) and can continue to be used as if nothing had happened.
Crosscall’s adaptation to the needs of its customers They could also be seen first-hand at the La Ciotat fire station, where the invited press participated in a fire drill with the Core-X5 model anchored to the chest to record and broadcast images that allow firefighters to monitor the situation from outside .
Details such as the comfort of the mobile charging centerwhich can be launched without problems and remain magnetized to charge the battery after an intervention, or the layout of the alarm button, which varies according to the market niche they are targeting (businesses, athletes, etc.), show the involvement of Crosscall with your customers.
Crosscall Action-X5, an ideal phone for extreme sports
Other area in which Crosscall is gaining a lot of ground is extreme sports. Its extensive list of ambassadors, recognizable figures in France in disciplines as demanding as freeride, surfing or climbing, are beginning to position the name of this brand among lovers of strong emotions. For all of them, the indicated mobile is the Action-X5, with which, in addition to being connected in the most hostile environments, its users will also be able to record their outings with its 120º cameras.
Crosscall mobiles are also available in Spain, not only as an alternative for companies to equip their employees, but also for ordinary users. Its five-year warranty and its maximum reliability in impact tests make this brand an alternative to consider when what you are looking for is an off-road mobile that can withstand everything.
