Contract win with operator in Latin America

Synchronica plc, the AIM listed mobile email and data synchronisation provider, announces it has concluded a contract with an undisclosed mobile operator for an initial 50,000 user license of its award winning mobile email product Mobile Gateway. In addition a customisation package was ordered. The contract is Synchronica’s third mobile operator win in Latin America.

The operator plans to use Synchonica’s Mobile Gateway technology to offer a push mail and mobile synchronisation service to customers starting from August 2009. Synchronica’s technology does not require an additional software client to be downloaded to the handset and enables push email for the broadest range of handsets, from high-end Smartphones to low-cost entry level devices.

This contract is the second win through Synchronica’s strategic distribution partner, Brightstar Corp, a global leader in customised distribution and integrated supply chain solutions for the wireless industry.

About Mobile Gateway
For Smartphones and mid-range feature phones, Mobile Gateway provides push email and synchronisation services using industry standards Push IMAP and SyncML without requiring additional software clients to be installed on the handset.

For entry-level handsets, Mobile Gateway provides email-to-SMS, email-to-MMS gateways and Push-to-WAP browser access – ideal for emerging markets, where PC-based access is limited and entry-level devices dominate. Users of entry-level handsets can send and receive emails as a standard SMS or MMS; their replies are then converted back to email.

Mobile Gateway also includes a document transcoding engine, which allows a variety of attachments, such as Word and PDF documents, to be displayed on mass-market phones. The transcoding engine also optimizes images for display on a mobile phone, thereby reducing bandwidth requirements.

Carsten Brinkschulte, CEO of Synchronica, said,“Mobile operators are looking to maximise user revenues by targeting additional data services not just on high-end phones but also on mass market mobile handsets. Mobile Gateway does exactly this and more operators are now turning to us to offer these additional services to their customers, to help reduce churn, attract new customers and to drive additional revenues.”
