Mountain View, CA & Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 28, 2005
PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, and Web Information Solutions (WebIS), professional web applications consultants, announce the launch of a new online store for mobile software products.
The store supplies mobile software made by PhatWare and WebIS, including all of PhatWare's products for Microsoft Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs and Smartphones, Tablet PCs, and Smartphones. The store has simpler navigation than large online stores and is secured with extensive online commerce security protocols to protect customers' personal information.
"I am confident that this joint business venture with WebIS is the best decision for PhatWare and its customers," said Stan Miasnikov, president of PhatWare. "The new store makes purchasing PhatWare's award-winning products more convenient than ever."
The fewer number of products in the store helps customers locate the products much faster and with greater convenience. In addition, consumers will experience increased availability of the products, as the store is managed by the privately held WebIS and expects site down time to be minimal compared to large online retailers.
"We have created an online store that provides customers with the easiest and most secure way to purchase mobile software," said Alex Kac, president of Web IS. "Our store solves problems that customers have experienced with larger online stores."
"The announced collaboration between PhatWare and WebIS will help bring software for Windows Mobile devices to customers quickly and more conveniently," said Julie Wymetalek, manager of the Mobility Partner Advisory Council at Microsoft Corp. "Their mobile software store will broaden the availability of mobile software solutions and provide customer with a simplified way to purchase unique applications to better customize their Windows Mobile device."
The new store, directly accessible at https://ssl.webis.net, offers exclusive discounts on the products, including bonus discounts for purchasing multiple products at one time. Consumers can continue to purchase software at each company's individual Web site, and their purchases will be automatically processed through the new store.
