Mobile World Congress, Barcelona
BARCELONA—Feb. 27, 2012—Mobile innovators Usablenet and dotMobi today announced that dotMobi’s DeviceAtlas mobile device detection solution now provides Usablenet’s multichannel content platform with device awareness capabilities.
Usablenet, whose clients represent 20 percent of the Fortune 1000, uses DeviceAtlas to ensure that their solutions work for all Web-enabled mobile devices, including the iPad and Android tablets. Usablenet’s cloud-based platform maps website content and Web services to mobile sites, mobile applications, Facebook, in-store kiosks, and assistive interfaces.
“Since 2000, Usablenet has worked with top-tier clients to help them provide great mobile Web experiences to their customers. The usability of a site has a direct impact on loyalty, and loyalty is where sales and profits are made. That’s why we need to make Web experiences work great on all mobile devices. We chose DeviceAtlas because it provides an accurate and comprehensive mobile device detection solution that meets the high quality standards we need to address our clients’ mission-critical requirements,” said Nick Taylor, CEO of Usablenet.
“Making mobile websites as user friendly and as functional on all mobile devices as they are when viewed on a desktop can be a challenge in today’s complex and fragmented device market,” said Eileen O’Sullivan, COO and CFO of dotMobi. “With the continued diversity in the devices people use to access Web content, knowing the capabilities of those devices is vital to guarantee quality of service. That’s where DeviceAtlas adds value.”
Launched at the 2008 Mobile World Congress, DeviceAtlas provides detailed information on virtually all Web-enabled devices in use today and can detect devices at high speed and scale. In 2011, dotMobi added HTML5 properties to DeviceAtlas data, which Usablenet incorporates into its HTML5 mobile commerce platform—the world’s first at its launch in April 2011.
Headquartered in Dublin, dotMobi—a wholly owned subsidiary of Afilias Limited—is a worldwide leader in enabling the development & discovery of quality mobile content through innovative services, in turn helping businesses and individuals reach the world’s billions of mobile phone users. dotMobi spurs mobile industry innovation by giving content providers the tools they need to ensure the Web will work on mobile phones with speed, accuracy and relevant content.
