Action Engine Corporation has been selected to join as a strategic partner the Microsoft Mobility Partner Advisory Council (MPAC).
This year marks the second anniversary of Microsoft's MPAC program, which was formed to build and foster stronger relationships between Microsoft and companies that develop mobility solutions. The council also serves as a forum to garner focused feedback on Microsoft platforms, and to provide new technical, marketing and business development opportunities to companies that use Microsoft technology in the mobility space.
"Software is the key to enabling a new generation of telecommunication business offerings aimed at meeting the demands of service providers and their customers, and driving new revenue streams," said Julie Wymetalek, manager of the MPAC program at Microsoft Corp. "The goal of MPAC is to provide an atmosphere where Microsoft can work with leading companies like Action Engine to foster the development and delivery of next-generation mobile and computing technologies that help spur industry growth."
Action Engine's CEO and founder Craig Eisler commented, "We are pleased that Microsoft recognizes Action Engine's Advanced Data Services software solution as a strong and rapidly growing category of mobile technology. MPAC provides a tremendous forum for market-leading companies like Action Engine to network and collaborate across the industry, and more importantly, within the wireless ecosystem. The combined success of MPAC partners has already begun to fuel a new era in mobile technology and we are excited to be deepening our engagement and on-going relationship with Microsoft through this effort."
Action Engine is the first company to deliver a feature-rich, carrier-grade Advanced Data Service (ADS) solution that enables mobile operators to develop and deploy a differentiated and custom-branded suite of data services that functions across multiple device types and mobile operating systems, including Microsoft's Windows Mobile Smartphone, Pocket PC and Pocket PC Phone Edition.
