HELSINKI – Finland – January 11, 2011 – Movial, the company that inspires rich and intuitive Internet experiences, today announced it has been nominated for the second year in a row by the GSMA for Best PC Client and Best Innovation in the 2011 RCS DevChallenge. Movial Communicator PC and Movial Social Communicator were nominated by an expert panel consisting of operator representatives, analysts, and the CTO and Chief Strategy of the GSMA. Movial won Best PC Client at the 2010 GSMA awards, and hopes to gain the top spot in 2011 as well.
Movial Communicator PC is the industry's most proven client for IMS and RCS deployments with more than 30 deployments for consumer and enterprise services. Movial Communicator PC enables services including HD audio and video calls, SMS, MMS, Presence, and Instant Messaging on Windows, Mac, and Linux PC's.
Social Communicator, a simple but powerful solution that brings together the best of two worlds: the Internet and telecom, is nominated in the RCS DevChallenge Best Innovation category. Social Communicator delivers enriched downtime from the time a user dials a person to the time the other person answers the call. Instead of just playing a dull ringtone, Social Communicator automatically loads the latest Social Media updates and multimedia for the person being called, such as Facebook pictures and Status Updates. Even before the call starts, the user already knows the latest and greatest about the person he or she is calling, helping enhance the overall experience, stimulating longer conversations that in turn generate additional operator revenue. Whereas many companies just add social media for the sake of having it checked off their list, Movial design experts embed social media in its solutions with well-defined operator and end user benefits.
"Having won the best PC client award last year, Movial is excited to continue to be recognized for its highly innovative and user-experience focused solutions," said Victor Donselaar, CEO, Movial Applications. "With a significant number of RCS-based deployments based on our PC and Mobile client products, Movial is at the forefront of enriching IP Communications. We are really happy to see the uptake in the market as operators launch IP Communications services triggered by customer demand, efficiency, and LTE." The winners in each category will be announced at the 2011 Mobile World Congress. The winning RCS applications and products will be demonstrated live at GSMA’s AppGarage exhibition stand in AppPlanet (Hall 7) at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 2011.
