SurfKitchen and Atos Origin to provide dynamic user interface software
SurfKitchen, a leading provider of mobile dynamic user experience (DUE) software, and Atos Origin, an international information technology (IT) services company, today announced that they have been selected by Spanish telecoms company Telefónica Móviles España (TME), to provide and integrate dynamic user experience software services to Movistar, TME’s mobile brand in Spain. This solution will support TME’s strategy to provide advanced and value added mobile data services to its 18.7 million customers in Spain.
Atos Origin will provide Movistar subscribers with a unique desktop menu through which they will have quick and easy direct access to online data and multimedia services from a wide range of handsets. Atos Origin will integrate SurfKitchen’s SurfKit Mobile solution, which enables 'one click' access to mobile data services. It also reduces data services complexity, boosts service discovery and encourages more frequent subscriber usage of data services. This in turn helps mobile operators to increase their mobile data revenues.
Ignacio Camarero, Chief Operating Officer at Telefónica Móviles España said: “Movistar is committed to delivering innovative user experience to its subscribers and Atos Origin, together with SurfKitchen, helps us to fulfil this. Atos Origin is already a trusted partner of TME with a strong track record in the mobile telecoms market.”
Miguel Bravo, Global Account Director for Atos Origin, concludes: “Thanks to this new integrated solution from SurfKitchen, TME subscribers will be able to access new generation data services in an intuitive manner and more importantly, they will become familiar with the services by using a navigation menu when surfing through e-moción from their mobile device. Atos Origin has a proven record of over 20 years of accomplishment and experience in the Telecoms sector and has the capacity, skills, and capability to provide global services.”
Philip Crawford, chairman, SurfKitchen, said: “There has been a lot of competition for this contract with Telefónica Móviles España, Spain’s leading mobile operator. Being selected as the preferred supplier by Telefónica Móviles is proof of SurfKitchen’s technology leadership. SurfKitchen is committed to a neutral, cross-platform approach covering all major device platforms. SurfKit Mobile today provides a broader, more complete set of functionality than any other vendor, with real-world commercially launched solutions. SurfKitchen will continue to add capability to the SurfKit Mobile platform, driven by the requirements of Telefónica Móviles España.”
