MINDEN, Nev., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Spare Backup, Inc. (OTCQB: SPBU) a provider of data backup and security software for smartphones, tablets and PCs announced today that it has reached an agreement with Tur Assist, a subsidiary of Mapfre Asistencia, Spain's leading insurance company, to offer Spare Backup and Mobile Security to its customers in Turkey.

Today Tur Assist is proud to note that it is the leader in the Turkish assistance market and remains a constant innovator in those sectors in which it operates. Tur Assist presently serves more than 4 million customers of 21 insurance companies, 25 automotive companies and several other corporations in various other sectors. Tur Assist has over 450 employees involved in these sectors.

About TUR ASSIST & MAPFRE ASISTENCIA

MAPFRE ASISTENCIA is an insurance, reinsurance and services multinational, founded in Madrid (Spain) in 1989 and now operates in Europe, America, Asia, Australia and Africa.

A specialist and international leader in Assistance and Specialty Risks, it designs innovative and highly original solutions targeting the following four sectors: Insurance, Automotive, Tourism and Finance. MAPFRE ASISTENCIA can offer the customers a comprehensive range of products which have become benchmarks in the international insurance sector and for which we have received recognition at the ITIJ Award for best international assistance company, among others.

Mapfre Asistencia professionals are committed to customer satisfaction, a goal achieved by applying three basic principles: excellent quality of service and performance; constant innovation and creativity in the product line; and, in-house technological development.

MAPFRE ASISTENCIA forms part of the MAPFRE GROUP, a multinational direct insurance group based in Spain, which is also involved in other international activities of great economic and strategic importance to the group: reinsurance, assistance and global risks.

When Mapfre Asistencia first entered the Turkish market in 1996, assistance services were quite new to the country. Therefore two challenges faced Mapfre Asistencia. One was to create a network of professional service providers throughout the country in order to satisfy customers and the second was to create demand and position for the assistance services, indispensable from the main lines of businesses especially among the insurance and automotive sectors in Turkey.

To achieve this Tur Assist, the regional subsidiary of Mapfre Asistencia, created a network of more than 5,000 service providers all around the country consisting of tow trucks, professional repairs men, rent-a-car companies, medical personnel and the like adding them to the giant network of those that Mapfre Asistencia already has all around the world.

In addition, Tur Assist has adopted the notion of perfect quality through regular audits, technical training and motivation meetings across both the network and the operation center and through quality and satisfaction surveys conducted by both external sources and Tur Assist among the clients. Tur Assist has ISO 9001 Quality Certificate accredited by Bureau Veritas Turkey.
