Acision, the world's leading messaging company, today announces its innovation network achieved significant milestones during its first year of operation. Formed in September 2008, the Acision Innovation Network was established to bring innovative companies from across the global communications community together to collaborate on the creation and marketing of new applications and services to advance the way the world communicates. Acision Innovation Network accomplishments, include:
- Establishing a network of 20 core partners and over 100 global
associate innovation partners from across the communications industry

pipeline of tens of millions (US$) in sectors including messaging,
mobile broadband, charging, mobile marketing, m-payments and social

- Providing for Acision and partner development, testing and marketing
of applications and services deployed by leading communications
companies across the globe from the Americas, Europe, Middle East,

Informa's Pamela Clark-Dickson said, "Acision's launch of its Innovation Network in September 2008 could not have been better timed. The market leader in messaging infrastructure was among the first to address the need for a technology partner program aimed specifically at helping mobile operators to cost-effectively introduce new mobile messaging services. That Acision has subsequently built an impressive pipeline of business for AIN is clear validation of its approach."
"The Acision Innovation Network has quickly achieved a level of success and collaboration that is delivering innovation across the communications industry," said Chris Jenkins, CMO of Acision. "The growing enthusiasm for the network within the industry means we have developed a strong partner base and list of companies seeking to become partners. The recent development and deployment of new services created through the network - particularly in the areas of mobile broadband, mobile marketing and charging - is proof that this model delivers successful innovation in a competitive, fast changing telecom industry."
The Acision Innovation Network creates a unique open environment in which innovative solutions can be brought to market with reduced timeframes and with managed risks for both operators and partners. The network features three membership levels: partners - a select group of companies invited to join and benefiting from close technical assistance, commercial collaboration and co-development, and offered the option to pre-certify their products and carry the Acision Assured brand; partner applicants - those companies being reviewed for full participation as partners; and associate partners - companies involved in broad collaboration and development activity and involvement with the network.
