BARCELONA, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - MTag, an innovative market leader in mobile
marketing software, who has already set the standard for 2D barcodes in France
and Poland, is exhibiting at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from
February 16 - 19 to launch its services that are ready to deploy throughout
the rest of Europe and the US.
MTag and the launch of mobiletag
Established in France, MTag is a leading software developer specializing
in mobile handset software solutions. In 2006, the company launched mobiletag,
an embedded software application that enables mobile phones to read 2D
barcodes, otherwise known as tags, simply by using the phone's camera.
When a user shoots or captures a tag, they are automatically redirected
to content, information, or a service using the Operator's Internet
connection. The software was developed to create quick access to external
content (print media, television, transit ads) - bringing otherwise fixed
medium to life.
mobiletag's 2D barcode specification has been retained by major European
Mobile Operators, including the Orange and Vodafone Groups and is compatible
with all main platforms (Windows Mobile, iPhone, Java, Android, Symbian,
Blackberry and Brew). Additionally, recent partnerships have included a launch
with Gillette in Spain, Pages Jaunes (French Yellow Pages) and Universal Music
Group in France.
What's next for MTag - from Mobile Content & Marketing to Mobile ID?
MTag's innovative research and development team has also been working on
a revolutionary new product to be launched at MWC that will see the world of
mobile identification (M-Payment, M-Ticketing, M-Couponing...) turned around.
Using the expertise acquired over the past 3 years, MTag is now in a
position to offer a real alternative to the other mobile identification
technologies being introduced, such as NFC, RFID or barcodes sent by SMS, MMS
and WAP. Not only is the company's new product MEEPASS ready to deploy today,
reducing the time to market for current mobile identification systems, it will
also seriously rival the alternative methods being implemented and remove a
number of constraints and obstacles to expedient adoption.
