World’s leading messaging company annouces new partnership-based ecosystem designed to foster innovation and co-development for telecoms industry
(PresseBox) (CTIA IT, San Francisco, )Acision, the world's leading messaging company, announces the launch of the Acision Innovation Network, a partnership-based ecosystem that will enable the global communications community to collaborate on the creation of new applications and services to advance the way the world communicates.
The Acision Innovation Network features two membership levels: associate and partner. Associate members will have access to a framework for knowledge sharing, collaboration and solution development via published, open interfaces. A select group of companies will be invited to become partners, with the option to pre-certify their products and carry the "Acision Assured" brand. These companies will benefit from closer technical assistance, commercial collaboration and co-development to ensure proven, integrated, propositions ready for a rapid roll-out.
"Acision's vision to create an ecosystem for innovators is a really interesting initiative as mobile operators seek to offer their customers new compelling applications. Acision is already a partner for half of the world's mobile and broadband operators and this could be a strong incentive for any applications providers looking to maximise their global market reach. We look forward to seeing the results of the programme as it develops", said Mark Newman, chief research officer of research firm Informa Telecoms & Media.
"Acision is making a considerable long-term commitment to build an effective ecosystem to provide technical assistance in the development, testing and marketing of new solutions," said Chris Jenkins, executive vice president, marketing and market development, Acision. "The Acision Innovation Network will initially focus on the future development of ideas and solutions across five key areas: mobile messaging, mobile marketing, voice messaging, converged communications and mobile broadband."
