Posted on 18-Mar-2011 09:51 | Filed under: News


Pocketweb Ltd. has announced the U.S. market launch of their Pocket Life Platform. Pocketweb integrates location based and social media services across web and mobile platforms and makes them easily accessible to consumers and organizations.

Based on its Pocket Life Platform these services are being offered worldwide and across mobile carriers. The Pocket Life Platform provides organizations with professional mobile services ranging from basic modules for registration, authentication, or contact management to high-end media, messaging, or location-based services.

Over the next few months, Pocketweb will roll out several features to enhance the Pocket Life Platform as it readies itself for stateside initiatives.

Pocketweb is on a growth path working with clients from the Telco, Automotive, Disaster Warning, and Retail industries. Recently, the company has become one of the leading providers for location-based solutions to reduce CO2 emissions, most notably with Volvo Group.

“Our focus with Pocket Life is to help organizations extend their brands, initiatives and customer base in a location-based, social media context. By selecting proven, white label modules and features, any organization can now provide seamless services across iPhone, Android and other mobile platforms,” remarked Michael Heinzel, Managing Director of Pocketweb. “After much success in both the European and Australasia markets, we believe extending our reach to the U.S. is a natural progression and tremendous growth opportunity.”

Added Alexander Koppen, Managing Director of Pocketweb: “With all of the hype surrounding privacy issues across online and mobile communities, our platform could not be more timely. We have spent the past several years perfecting not only the location-based technology but also deeply understanding its implications on privacy; our solution creates a safe environment for brands to take advantage of white label, geo-location, and social networking features.”
