We were looking to partner with someone who really knows the telematics and location based services business and could easily walk between the enterprise and consumer worlds.

Gary Hartwig, President of AppLocation Systems Inc. and Pete Smyth, President, CEO and Founder of Iamota Corporation announced today the availability of real time location based mobile content and services. By combining Iamota's proprietary end-to-end mobile marketing, messaging & payment platform with AppLocation's carrier grade MOBILEFusion™ wireless platform, global brands can now deliver location sensitive services and features.

Iamota Impulse, Iamota Impact and Iamota iCast enable mobile payment, deliver mobile content and marketing campaigns, and extend social networks directly to wireless handheld devices. MOBILEFusion provides location awareness and location sensitive content. Features such as mapping, routing, presence awareness, notifications, opt-in privacy, and security are provided through this partnership.

Iamota will work with AppLocation in a variety of applications. "This is a good strategic fit for us. AppLocation designed their MOBILEFusion platform thinking much the same way we did - they began with the end in mind. It is a modular, scalable interface that works with any wireless device. I've seen it work and they got it right," stated Iamota CEO, Pete Smyth. "We were looking to partner with someone who really knows the telematics and location based services business and could easily walk between the enterprise and consumer worlds."

AppLocation President, Hartwig responded by adding, "The combination of location and wireless connectivity can be powerful for both consumers and businesses. For example, we can deliver specific information and media to transit riders with MOBILEFusion and Iamota. If a transit rider is sitting in a downtown Vancouver office on a rainy day and wants to know if the bus is going to be late, it is possible to opt-in for on time bus services via the mobile phone or PDA. Better than that though, by connecting location of the handset and the transit bus real time tracking, the rider can request messaging services to be advised if the bus is late and also be sent a coupon to have a beer at the nearest pub instead."

Iamota CEO, Smyth went on to say, "Adding location based services and navigation capability to our Iamota platform is a huge benefit for our customers. Connecting to the mobile world in real time, where the user is, with contextual media and location awareness gives global brands the power to deliver rich digital content that is customizable and delivered on an opt-in basis."
