Grom Social Enterprises (OTCQB: GRMM) , a holding company for four wholly-owned operating subsidiaries, announced today its subsidiary Grom Educational Services ("GES") is opening a new 1,400 square foot office in Norcross, Georgia on January 1, 2018 to house its NetSpective Webfilter division. GES d/b/a as NetSpective Webfilter provides proprietary Internet filtering software, to over 3,700 schools and in excess of 2 million children, and generates revenue through a subscription model. NetSpective products comply with the Children's Internet Protection Act ("CIPA"), which requires that K-12 schools and libraries in the United States use Internet filters and implement other technology protection measures to protect children from harmful online content as a condition for federal funding. See www.gromedu.com for additional information.
Ralph Sabella, Grom's VP of Operations, stated, "The opening of the GES office is an important milestone for Grom. During the past year, NetSpective operated out of the offices of Telemate.net based in Norcross, Georgia. Additionally, our new offices will enable us to focus on expanding the web filter division as well as centralizing our very talented engineering and development group who will assist with all other Grom enterprises."
"We feel the combination of Grom's enhanced digital citizenship programs and extensive library of original content coupled with NetSpective Webfilter products, will bring significant added value to our menu of products and give us a leg up on the competition," said Darren Marks, President and CEO.
