- Wmode to incorporate GoMedia into its ClearMode(R) offering -
BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 15 /CNW/ - Wmode, the developer and operator of the ClearMode(R) managed service, announced today that they have signed a distribution agreement with Momac that allows Wmode to offer the award winning GoMedia suite of services in the North American market. Wmode will begin targeting media and publishing companies with the full GoMedia suite, operated as a managed service. In parallel, Wmode plans to tightly integrate certain pieces of GoMedia with its own ClearMode services. Initially, both GoPortal and GoPublish will be used for designing and maintaining the ClearMode storefronts for Smart phones and higher end devices.
"Momac's GoMedia solution is a perfect addition to our ClearMode managed service. Their portal design tools and storefront publishing capabilities will give us a great deal of flexibility to create extremely rich user experiences on Smart phones." Stated Emanuel Bertolin, CEO at Wmode. "We believe GoMedia's functionality will become a very important part of Wmode's overall Smart Portal strategy for operators that wish to offer consumers a way to access account information, subscribe to new services and manage their existing voice and data subscriptions."
Wmode will continue to manage ClearMode and GoMedia as a managed service for mobile and broadband operators. The two companies are also in discussions about a reciprocal agreement that will allow Momac to integrate parts of the ClearMode solution with their GoMedia services for the European market.
"Wmode is a global leader in our industry and we couldn't have asked for a stronger distribution partner in the North American market" Stated Sham Careem, Managing Director of Momac UK. "We also believe that the ClearMode solution offers Momac capabilities that when integrated with GoMedia will set us apart from our competitors.
