About Purple Communications, Inc.
Purple Communications, Inc. provides video relay and text relay services and professional interpreting. The company offers various options designed to the varied communication customers.
Products and Services
The company provides three main services to the deaf, hard of hearing, and speech-impaired people.
Internet Protocol Text Relay ServicesInternet text relay services enable deaf or hard of hearing callers to use a Internet-connected computer or wireless handheld device to place calls, which are connected to a relay operator. The relay operator calls the voice number and then verbally speaks the text message typed by the deaf caller to the hearing recipient, and types the hearing partys responses back to the deaf party. It provides versions of this service under the IP-Relay brand acquired from Verizon TRS and the existing i711 brand from Purple.
Video Relay Services (VRS)Using VRS, a deaf caller begins a call by communicating directly with a sign language interpreter over a live video connection, either on a Webcam-equipped PC or a set-top videophone; the video interpreter places the call on the deaf persons behalf, and translates the callers sign language into audible speech for the hearing person, and back into sign language for the deaf caller. It provides versions of this service primarily under the Purple Language Services and i711 brands. The company also offers a white-label (OEM) solution by providing the infrastructure and interpreting services for video relay services offered by Sprint and AT&T, which are offered under their brand names.
Community Interpreting Services and VRI Certified sign language interpreters provide interpreting services in situations where relay services not available or ideal, such as a doctor appointment or in-person business meeting.
IP Text Relay Services
The company's IP Text Relay services have been integrated onto a single technology platform which is operated in part by a third-party, Stellar Nordia. This platform supports the services of both of its IP text relay brands. IP text relay users can access its services and process text relay calls through various methods, including directly from either the i711.com or IP-Relay.com Internet portals. Other methods include using AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) application, as well as custom software clients downloaded onto the Web enabled cell phones, such as T-Mobiles SideKick, Apples I-Phone, and the RIM BlackBerry devices. The company offers its IP text relay service with the spoken language of English, as well as Spanish. In 2009, the company also upgraded the IP text relay services with the ability to provide its customers with a local phone number which allows hearing friends and family to call customers directly through its service. The company provides traditional relay service (both in-state and state-to-state) under contracts from two jurisdictions, California and Tennessee.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
