Mobile communication technology firm TeleCommunication Systems and South Africa-based Cellfind have announced a partnership agreement to include add TeleCommunication Systems’ location-based solution in Cellfind’s application offerings.
Mobile operators can quickly enable location services and generate revenue almost immediately by using TCS’ hosted platform integrated with Cellfind’s LBS applications. This is the first agreement between the two companies and the first for TeleCommunication Systems in Africa.
This partnership creates a hosted, end-to-end LBS solution that covers all of the areas a wireless operator needs to start or enhance a LBS business. Senior Vice President of TCS’ Commercial Software Group, Jay Whitehurst , said: “Cellfind is a leader in wireless technology in the African market, and we look forward to bringing wireless carriers a superior LBS offering. This partnership represents a mutually beneficial relationship based upon common strategic goals to capitalize on the expanding commercialization of LBS in both the African and international markets.”
