Mobile Device Detection with Handset Detection

Handset Detection

“Our mission is to help web developers and digital agencies the world over with real enterprise quality mobile device detection. It’s the same kind that big guys like Google and Facebook have without having to manage that themselves.”

Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) October 08, 2012

The ever growing field of mobile detection became that much more competitive when Australian company Handset Detection announced its local device detection service earlier this month.

The innovation allows users to perform device detections from their own servers instead of the way they previously had to do it - logging in through Handset Detection’s website. All website owners have to do is install the pre-made development kit and start gathering info on the devices accessing their websites.

“Licenses are charged per site and not per server so it works out to a large cost savings for our customers,” Handset Detection co-founder Richard Uren says. “We're using the same technology that we've pioneered over the last 4 years and made that available to our customers. The detection system is all in memory, so there's no database dependencies and its incredibly fast.”

There are over 500,000 mobile device variations in the company’s database so it’s easy to see why companies rely on Handset Detection to do the dirty work for them. The new local device detection technology makes the process that much simpler by cutting out any redirects to mobile sites.

“Our mission is to help web developers and digital agencies the world over with real enterprise quality mobile device detection,” Uren says. “It’s the same kind that big guys like Google and Facebook have without having to manage that themselves.”
