We are prepared to design and develop applications and solutions that can add value to Sogeti clients, Sogeti professionals as well as the market as a whole
Dayton, OH (Vocus) June 8, 2010
Sogeti, a leading international provider of professional IT services, announced today it has launched a mobile solutions lab. The market of mobile technologies has never been more exciting than it is today. While companies leverage mobile solutions to accelerate business in order to become more competitive and cost efficient, consumers also turn to mobile phones for enhanced communication options. Sogeti aims at maintaining its leadership in developing mobile applications and solutions through the new global Mobile Solutions Lab (MSL).
The lab has now started delivering its first mobile applications (apps) – for free. And from now on there will be a regular delivery of new applications, all based on the demands and ideas that show up on the lab’s crowdsourcing site.
“New ideas for mobile applications emerge every day and through the lab we will able to both lead and respond to the exciting opportunities. We are prepared to design and develop applications and solutions that can add value to Sogeti clients, Sogeti professionals as well as the market as a whole", said Michiel Boreel, Group Chief Technology Officer at Sogeti.
First set of apps ready for use
The Mobile Solutions Lab’s first apps were chosen from the crowdsourcing site due to their popularity and possible broad use. The first apps are now available online, developed for several platforms.
With the “Xpress It”-app you can update your status on both Facebook and Twitter at the same time. See your friends’ updates from both services separately or at the same time.
The “Who Am I”-app reveals the true meaning of any name! Type a name, the app will pick out just the right words for you. Beware of the hidden button.
The “@Vote”-app allows you to take a quick vote on anything with your friends, colleagues, community, or maybe millions of people. When needed you can create a private poll and share the key with a selected number of people.
“This is just a preview of what will follow. Creativity is booming since there are so many apps out there to be inspired by. In the nearest future we are putting extra focus on delivering business related apps since the interest for apps within that area has grown extensively now that people are more familiar with using apps than before”, revealed Andreas Sjöström, mobile solutions expert at the Mobile Solutions Lab.
