Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

After having worked for years with primarily private companies as customers, Mobiletech is now also expanding into the public sector. And the public sector in Scandinavia is reaching out for mobile as a new effective way of communicating with the citizens.

In just a few months Mobiletech has provided large mobile information portals for local councils in Denmark as well as Norway. In Sweden the army has launched a large mobile portal build on Mobiletech technology, and many more projects are on the way for central governments and local public institutions.

“Mobile is a fantastic way of building ‘anywhere, anytime’ interactive dialogues with citizens, and the see the development in the public sector over the past few months as a proof that the public sector is really embracing this interesting new media!”, says Mobiletech CEO, Christian Erichssen.

SIFO Research International lanserar mobilmätningar

2009-05-04 14:15

Nu lanserar SIFO Research International mobilmätningar för den svenska marknaden. SIFO RI har tecknat ett avtal med en underleverantör, Mobiletech, som samarbetar med de svenska mobiloperatörerna. Den tekniska mätningen redovisas varje vecka på sifomedia.se och KIAIndex. Mätningen ger information om användarens faktiska beteende. Mobiletech står bakom den teknik som samlar in primärdata, medan SIFO kvalitetssäkrar, analyserar och rapportera data.

Mobiletech levererar även mjukvara för mobila tjänster till många svenska kunder, däribland Dagens Nyheter, Aftonbladet, SvD, E24, Gota Media, Sydsvenskan, Skånemedia, UNT, med flera. Såväl den tekniska som den metodmässiga lösningen för trafikmätning i mobilkanalen kommer att vara den samma som de officiella mätningar som sedan några månader tillbaka genomförs på den norska marknaden.

- Vi har länge sett behovet av trafikmätningar för den mobila marknaden som har vuxit de senaste åren. I år tror vi dessutom på en kraftig expansion för mobilmarknaden. En gemensam valuta ger positiva effekter för både annonsörer och mediebolag då man får jämförbarhet med övriga medier, 


säger Stefan Svanfeldt affärsområdeschef på SIFO RI. Vår ambition är att inom kort även att lansera individ och målgruppsmätningar för mobilmarknaden, fortsätter Stefan Svanfeldt.

- Vi ser en stadig tillväxt i mobilkanalen, och behovet för mätningar är uppenbart både för annonsörer och sajtägare. Mobilkanalen är fortfarande relativt ny, men med snabbare uppkopplingar och bättre terminaler kommer vi se en fortsatt stark tillväxt med fler avancerade kommunikationslösningar framöver, säger Anders Holen, VD Mobiletech, Sverige.

Aftenposten Mobile

Written by

Monday, March 30th, 2009

Norway’s third biggest online newspaper, Aftenposten, has recently gone live with an innovative mobile site using Mobiletech’s Frame rendering software. Not only have they developed a site which adapts to all devices (including the iPhone) they have also gone about it in a very modern way.

After years of experience in mobile, including working with ASP hosted approaches, Aftenposten has chosen Mobiletech’s Frame delivery to power their mobile channel. With Frame, Aftenposten’s own internal staff were able to write jsp-code using Mobiletech’s tag library to develop the mobile pages they wanted. Rather than code for each specific device, Aftenposten was also able to choose a single template and widget framework which in turn created mark-up specifically for each device – while utilising the best features of each. Now Aftenposten are totally self sufficient in the mobile channel, having the editorial freedom and control to deliver content to their readers when, how and where they want it.

Total time between software delivery to a live site was only 5 weeks. The site now contains all the sections you would expect from a newspaper plus a city guide and mobile TV channel – all of which work across compatible devices. We think the team at Aftenposten have done an amazing job. Check it out on your mobile and we think you will agree. mobil.aftenposten.no


EPiServerdagen 2009

Written by

Friday, March 13th, 2009
The EpiServerdagen 2009 took place outside Stockholm on Tuesday March 10th 2009. More than 1000 visitors came to Kistamässan, and Mobiletech were present with 5 of our people. At our stand we presented our EPiServer plugin, in addition to other mobile services.
We also helped EPiServer with our mobile expertise, and did the following:
Mobile portal
Included the agenda and relevant information. The portal is dual language, both Swedish and English. All Swedish end-users will get Swedish text, while international users will get English text.
alt
SMS services
The introduction speaker came to a point where she mentioned the word ‘mobile’, and at the same time we hit the button in our systems, resulting in several hundred sms-messages received by the audience simultaneously. This is always quite a powerful experience!
mVote is a powerful tool where the participants may vote by texting an sms to a short code, e.g. MVOTE 10 (1-4), where 10 is the id of the mVote, and 1-4 is the number of alternatives. An example of an sms can be: MVOTE 10 3 to 72311 (Sweden). The results will be displayed on an automatically updated graph, which can be viewed with a normal web browser. The keynote speaker Tim Forrester asked the following question (results in brackets):
Over the next 12 months, how will your company’s deployments or usage of Web content management change? Will the number of deployments or usage…?
1. Increase (77,3%)
2. Remain the same (15,3%)
3. Be scaled back (1,7%)
4. Don’t know (5,7%)
 
 alt
One interesting quote from one of the sessions:
‘Traffic from mobile handsets towards community sites like facebook/twitter/flickr increased by 152% the last 12 months.’
-and with EPiServer focusing on community solutions for normal websites, that area could be an interesting future for the mobile.

(Oslo, Copenhagen, August 19th 2008) Mobiletech launches into Denmark with a new Danish subsidiary lead by the former leadership team of iLoop Mobile Denmark.

Mobiletech, the leading software company for mobile web tools in Scandinavia, fills the void created by the recent departure of iLoop Mobile Denmark from the Danish market.

Mobiletech, the leading software company for mobile web tools in Scandinavia, fills the void created by the recent departure of iLoop Mobile Denmark from the Danish market.

For many years iLoop Denmark has been a significant part of the mobile market and has worked successfully with brands, mobile operators and corporations in the Danish market. Recently, iLoop’s US parent, iLoop Mobile Inc. chose to close its activities in the Danish Market.

“When a significant player in the market departs, it leaves the customers in a difficult situation. We don’t think it is good for them or the market. With our move into Denmark, we will give these customers an opportunity to continue their mobile services with the least disruption as possible” says CEO Mobiletech, Espen Askvik.

Mobiletech establishes an office in Denmark and introduces innovative solutions.

Mobiletech is now establishing an office in Copenhagen. Composition of the Danish office of Mobiletech is made up of the former core expert team of iLoop Mobile Denmark:

Michael Buch Sandager (former iLoop Denmark CEO), Director, Denmark
Karsten Viuf (former  iLoop Denmark Sales Director), Sales Director, Denmark       
Baldur Norddahl (former iLoop CTO), Technical Consultant Denmark

”Mobiletech has a comprehensive platform for all types of mobile activities. It is one of the most successful companies in its field, highlighted by its impressive customer portfolio. Together our core philosophy will be to deliver dynamic services which give tangible results to our customers. Mobiletech’s toolset also allows customers to develop and administrate their mobile services” says Michael Buch Sandager.

The platform has SMS and MMS gateway, a CMS system for mobile sites and retail functionality for  the sale of mobile content and the administration of a mobile storefront. There is streaming functionality and an ad management tool for mobile ads plus advanced tools for reporting, CRM and response marketing campaigns.

“The Danish market is in the middle of an exciting growth phase. For Mobiletech, acquiring iLoop Denmark’s core team represents a great opportunity to enter the market with a commanding presence” says Espen Askvik, CEO Mobiletech.

“The mobile market is developing rapidly, and increasing demands face the service providers. The next couple of years we will see a multitude of new services that include integrated mobile web services, and it is good news for the market as such that a player like Mobiletech enters the marketplace”, says Steffen Krabbenhøft, Mobile Director of Mediacom Denmark – one of the most profiled mobile experts of Denmark.
