Europolitan and Aspiro sign partnership agreement regarding the development of WAP-Services

Europolitan and Aspiro have signed a partnership agreement regulating the development and sales of WAP-services.

“This agreement enables us to create advanced and secure mobile information services. Instead of going via the Internet, we transfer the information directly to our GSM-network,” says Mikael Kluge, Vice President Marketing at Europolitan. The joint concept used by Europolitan and Aspiro allows companies using WAP-services to by-pass the Internet and send information directly between Europolitan’s GSM-network and the WAP-application concerned. This solution affords companies far greater opportunities of controlling both the distribution of the WAP-application’s information, and access to it. “Our solutions make it possible for companies to send internal and external information in a controlled and secure way. By combining Europolitan’s and Aspiro’s knowledge of mobile services, we are able to create solutions that benefit our joint customers,” says Christer Månsson, Managing Director at Aspiro. Europolitan AB is a Swedish GSM operator that prioritises service and quality. The company’s head office is in Karlskrona, Sweden. Europolitan is a leader in the field of technically advanced services for GSM 900/1800. The Europolitan Group, which also includes Europolitan AB’s sister company Europolitan Stores AB and the stock-market listed Parent Company Europolitan Holdings AB, employs around 900 people.
